WAS...

I've been talking in past tense about someone really close to me recently and I hate it. Legitimately, a year ago this month I posted a blog about her asking my Christian readers to join me in prayer for her in my blog "Valerie". Sadly this past weekend she past away suddenly. Talking about her in past tense not only makes me sad (I hardly believe that she's really gone) but it's taught me to always forgive and frequently let my loved ones know I love them.

I'd like to reopen the invitation to believers to pray for the salvation of her family (which is also my family).

The lady of conversation is my aunt. She's the only 1st aunt of mine that I got to know. My other aunts weren't there for my family while I was growing up. My aunt was a diva, an undercover celebrity- she taught me about fashion and how to have fun on a budget. She was everything an aunt is suppose to be and then some. She had her times were she made it hard for us to forgive her but I always forgave. She had so many talents that got squandered because of her drug addiction. She destroyed her beautiful body and shortened her lifespan. She had so many aspirations that were never realized. So many broken dreams and too many sad times make looking back at her life almost tragic. One of the good things that stand out the most is the amount of people who knew her and love her. Being a single lady she had time to pay attention to many people unlike others who have families to take care of constantly. The thing I do regret is "putting off till tomorrow what I could do today". Because I kept procrastinating I lost my last opportunities to spend time with my closest Aunt and let her know that I was not upset with her and that I love her whole-heartedly.

I ask my audience to take heed from my short story. Love your family & friends and often let them know that with your words.





Well Sometimes I Go Out, By Myself, And I Look Across The Water.

And I Think Of All The Things, Of What You're Doing, And in my head I Paint A Picture.

'Cause Since I've Come Home, Well My Body's Been A Mess, And I Miss Your Ginger Hair, And The Way You Like To Dress.

Oh Won't You Come On Over, Stop Making A Fool Out Of Me, Why Dont You Come On Over, Valerie.

Did You Have To Go To Jail, Put Your House Out Up For Sale, Did You Get A Good Lawyer.

I Hope You Didnt Catch A Tan, I Hope You Find The Right Man, Who'll Fix It For You.

Are You Shopping Anywhere, Change The Color Of Your Hair, And Are You Busy.

Did You Have To Pay That Fine, That You Were Dodging All The Time, Are You Still Dizzy.

Well Since I Come Home, Well My Body's Been A Mess, And I Miss Your Tender Hair, And The Way You Like To Dress.

Oh Wont You Come On Over, Stop Making A Fool Out Of Me, Oh Why Don't You Come On Over, Valerie.

Why Don't You Come On Over Valerie...

I love you Auntie!!
I'm going to miss your fashion sense, how you ruined movies for me (it never angered me), your thoughtfulness, your 2am cookie making. I know for a fact that I'll never be able to eat Churches Chicken without thinking of you. I love you sooooooo much Auntie and I'll regret all my life for not at least calling you to tell you this. I pray to God that you're resting in peace with Him. I long to see you again.

p.s. I know we can't pray people into heaven I'm just asking God if she's there with Him.
