Let me tell u a little about my mum's family.
My mother is the first born and only girl. She has three younger brothers. She was brought up in a house full of love. My mother and her brothers are very close. When one person sneeze everyone sneezed with him. They got each other's back. My mother, the ideal sister in law. didn't give her brother's wives any trouble and they all loved her.
With this little story I am sure you understand how close they are.
All the children, the nieces and nephews are also very close, and I am so close to my uncles, for they are like my second father, if you know what I mean.
In 2008 my uncle was diagnosed with cancer. He went to Switzerland, where he had a bone marrow transplant. He survived it and was told to come every year for a check, which he did in 2009 and 2010. Only for him to become ill again after christmas. Without hesitation he was sent to India, where he died. In fact the week he died, he was to be discharged from the hospital.
I have asked God a lot of questions: "why do bad things happen to good people?"
Why is it that it looks as though the enemy has won the battle?
Why did he have to die so young at age 54?
Well I know he is in a better place but at least he should have stay with us, with his family, his wife and his son longer...
He had some many dreams, a lot of things he wanted to accomplish but he cannot, for he is no more...
I have decided to do a lot of things in this life, whether I can finish them or not I will try
1. I will try my best to fulfill some of the dreams he had(My uncle)...like a family holiday in one of the islands where all the uncles, aunties, nieces and nephews will come together and have fun.
2. I will try and be there for his son for he is family and very dear to my heart.
3. I will learn to play a musical instrument ( learning to beat the drums) in memory of him, for my mother (who had always wanted to learn to beat the drums but because of the times she didn't learn and finally for myself, for I have fallen in love with the drums.
Life is so short and one never knows...Please all that you have decided to do, start it now, even though you don't accomplish all, but at least you will be satisfied that you tried.
Do take care and chat with you later.
