A Family Story Part III
Money has overshadowed my family. Money given yesterday is forgotten about today. There is never an effort by anyone to also help bring money in. And so we are in a situation where a family of adult men and women finds itself without a single person with a job. Only that it is my job to take care of everyone.
If you know me, you know how much I love my family, especially my nieces and nephews. It was always standard and relied on in my family that I would plan and provide for my nieces and nephews' birthdays; that I would provide them with new clothes with every change of the season. I have always spoiled them, loved them, given them.
I wonder, when is it okay for me to take care of myself? When do I get to enjoy the things I work for, the things I have earned? I am not married, I do not have children, I only have myself and only myself to provide for my needs. When will everyone feel they have gotten enough from Marlo? When do I stop having the guilt? When will they remember how much I have always done?
I miss my nieces and nephews, I feel sad that they sometimes get caught in the middle. Family is where you should be able to find comfort - I will wait to find mine...Until then, God, my friends and of course fashion will do...
