The End of Immediate Family

September 21, 2012 at 3:30 am (Uncategorized)

I am the youngest in my family.  Until recently, I thought that was the best!  You get spoiled, waited on, catered to, protected and loved by all those other family members that were there first.  Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and even all their friends dote on the youngest.  They can’t seem to help it.

Then one day you realize that all those people that have spoiled you, waited on you, catered to you, protected and loved you are slowly leaving you.  You are the last in your immediate family.  Your mother, father sister and brother, aunts, uncles, counsins and all the others have moved on.  And you cry because you miss them.  Then when your tears are spent, you begin to recall all those memories of how they loved you.  And your smile returns.
