Hello my fellow gardeners 😆 you guys know me… if it looks pretty I will let it grow… it’s probably a wild something… love the leaves … any guess what it is? Last year I had cucumber plants growing in this pot and used hay as mulch.

I’m thankful for having such great kids …

I’m thankful for having such great kids and a husband who I love to death…. it’s been year since my roller-coaster of illness…from surgeries, procedures, testings etc and I’m not done 😕 I don’t have the energy that I used to have but I keep moving … but I have a dilemma

(I have 5 brothers (one passed away 4 years ago) and I’m the only sister)

Last year memorial day we were celebrating my sons graduation at one of my brothers house. I was just dealing with news of having lumps in my breasts and awaiting for more testing. I’ve always been the one to brighten the celebrations and the cook for every family gatherings.

At that time I asked my brother to bbq because I just couldn’t, I was also in pain.

The evening went on but he was not happy to be grilling. It was a bother to him. During the time I brought plenty of burgers and asked for all of them to be cooked since my son wanted to take some home to eat later in the next few days.

Later on that evening around 8pm my son asked me where the burgers went because he wanted to eat another.

My brothers threw them all to the trash!

My brother started yelling that it was his house and he could do whatever he wanted, etc etc…

I left his house…

Next day our oldest brother came by to my house and insulted me stating I had issues and that I needed to be told and mind my own place and telling me I was a nobody and insulting with every word you can find to make someone feel they are dirt. I stood there on the side walk in front of my house quietly while he went on and on until my husband said you don’t need to hear anymore let’s go back in…

So for a year now I’ve had lumpectomy, hysterectomy, egd, colonoscopy, biopsies… (you name it, ive had it done) ugh surgeries, procedures and testings and I’m not done yet. Next month go again to check if there any more cancer cells ….

None of them came to see me at the hospital stays or home… i even asked them if any of them can bring me soup and they ignored me…they didn’t text or call… I tried giving them updates about my condition… some say “ok”… my husband even texted them room number … he really thought they were going to show up but they didn’t.

So today it’s been a year of our last gathering. .. all brothers are back together for memorial weekend and I wasn’t told…

I sent a message to all of how I feel that I no longer have brothers etc in hopes for us to be together again…

What did I get? …
How I haven’t gone to their activities
We invite you and you don’t come
It’s both ways
You shut us out
You need to sit down with us so we can tell you what’s wrong
ETC ETC

My question is…

I’m sick, I was off of work for months recovering from surgeries and everything else I’ve been having.

So what happened to family caring for others?

Of course it bothers me and makes me cry that I no longer have my brothers… but it is what it is, there is nothing I can do.

My little energy I have left is for my family.

I’m thankful for my kids and husband! They have kept me uplifted and feeling loved.
And I thank God for that 😊

Thank you for listening!
