Family: you can’t live with them, have LIVED without them.
I wanted this trip to be nostalgic; I wanted to do the things I did when I was younger, but I did not mean to have to endure this again. I didn’t want to have to tear up in their faces either, but when no human being is willing to listen, the only thing I can do I desperately BEG for God’s grace to enter this household. I basically grew up hearing two of my aunts argue and fight, almost always it’s just meaningless crap that I could care less about. But when I was younger I made myself invisible and just played by myself on the side. Somehow, this time I hit my breaking point in enduring their shenanigans and put my foot into the fight. I have seen a lot of spiritual maturity in one of my aunts, and I know what we were all asking of her was incredibly hard. But it’s just another classic clash of the stubborn heads. I don’t know if my mom has the heart to head home after this ridiculous episode in the sisterhood of insanity.
All I could do was dwell on James 1 and listen to praise songs. It’s been an exhausting day, I took out all my energy praying on my knees, but I have to put on a happy face for the cousins because they sort of begged me to stay also.
Last but not least, long before this episode, I have been thanking God everyday for an older brother who looked after me even to this day without picking fights with me. How I ever got so lucky I will never know, but perhaps the overflowing issues of my aunts were enough to burden multiple generations.
