Family, we only have one and maybe marry into a second. It is one of these things we have nothing to say about. We are born in them and we see it grow through marriage. And like every home or household, there is always something going on.
Some may go by the name “black sheep” and are the ones in a family who pretty much get to be blamed for something. On the other hand there are several of those in every family. All with a different outlook on things. I have come a crossed some in mine.
Yeah, you have guessed there is a crisis within the family. Or better there are even two. It used to e three but one of these chaotic happening made sure we resolved one. Yes we painted a black sheep white again.
When there is only one we do anything to help. We twist and wiggle ourselves in every corner to overcome this ordeal. It is not easy when you are family and know both sides of a story. You are than often made to choose a side. But how could we when we all are on the same side to begin with.
Everything is turned upside down. Childcare management of two working parents, one being my sister. Three of them need a place to have their cup of tea and talk about the day. All the while the household is stirred up by my Nan who has been hospitalized due to recent falls from her wheelchair.
No need to feel sorry she is one tough little lady. As are many old folks. They never went to a doctor so fast as we are these days. She is smiling and doing very well. True enough she need full care now and for that we are all in the family chipping in to find her a new place. Move her stuff and make sure all is taken care of.
It is exactly the moment we see what we are made of. That all set aside their life (almost all) to help the head of the family. Yes Grandma is everything and last of the oldies.
Did I say almost all , well yeah there is another dispute going one, one in which we can’t choose sides yet very delicate as there are children involved. I can only imagine what it means for a grandparent not to see their grandchildren. I seen it happen before in very close proximity of what is our family.
On top of that we were all holding our breath as a little baby boy was born 3 months premature. Weighing a little over two pounds. The little man is born within our midst all while we were running around. He is doing well and so is his mum. Some of our thoughts are with them as it wasn’t the easiest pregnancy. Her first pregnancy ended in a hell.
These last few weeks have and are testing our abilities to change our agenda and work together as a whole. It is that last thing we see the least of until a crisis occurs.
Using this part as an excuse as well to show you how we in the world are doing. Let say a family is a micro version of a world. We only act after a bomb has exploded.
My family was and is, no different. Branches reaches out doing their own thing until that devastated moment.It is lucky for us, it is never to late to mend broken links and bury the hatchet. There might not be black sheep or there are many. We only have one family Okay two if you count the in-laws.
It is there where branches or roots intertwine. We come together as one family each and every one of us connected. And we screw it up by fighting, misunderstanding. Pointing blaming fingers to others instead of working things out.
I am doing my part and for this I am sorry to not have the regular Crow posts. Somehow I am sure it is working out. Friends and family if we are as one why not act as one. If we are all connected in one or the other way why can we not be more like family.
Who cares about religion, who cares about colour when we all are family. Why do we feel the need to hurt family, people around us.
I say this being in this micro world, I will do my best and give it my all to achieve a ending benefiting us all.
Just something I felt like sharing today as it has been a weird couple of weeks.
That being said, there are always those who think they can get away with hurting people, or even think it is okay to slap people around. For those I have but one thing to say. What would you do if you were in their place. Grow up and take responsibility. Stop blaming others for your own shortcomings.
I always hope we will one day find a way to at least have us stop hurting. Though I very much know our very existence is hurting someone. Who made the damn rules in this universe? Are we beyond saving on this sinking ship? Questions for another day and another rant.
