Even when i was a young girl, I never liked saying the ever so formal and seems so final word goodbye.Yes it may sound a little melodramatic, but it is true. I found it more reassuring (mainly for myself),if i said “see you later” ,it gave more hope and promise that we would see each other again.I still feel this way as an adult .
Well two short days ago, i had to say this to my older brother,who left this earthly world very unexpectedly.I had no clue, along with family that he would be leaving us so soon.He was a very strong and domineering man, in the very likeness of our father(who passed only two short years ago ).They both were the type of men that if they had to deal with a problem or issue(health,financial,or emotional) they would handle it themselves because that is what men do and they won’t have to get the family worried and upset about whatever is going on. Lord only knows their hearts were in the right place, but their pride just got in the way of letting family be there for them as moral support.
Both of these men will forever hold a very special place in my heart, and each in a different chamber of my heart.But until we meet again guys……know that I’ll see you later.
