I took 3 weeks off work to take somewhat of a spontaneous trip to the Philippines. I was nervous, excited and stressed. Well, things changed but the emotions did not. Sometimes the universe throws things at you that make you question yourself - your vulnerability, your strength, your entire being. Cancelling a trip because mom needed surgery was easy. The money I lost, the days (and nights) by a hospital bed, the stress, the anger, the fight, the sleeping in a chair, the conversations, the decisions - now those have been tough. I've had to watch two of the women I admire the most go through the biggest hardships of their life this past year.

I'm a person who was sculpted by fight and drive. Lola and mom gave so much of that to me. I've faced many battles and only managed to beat them thanks to a strong circle. My friends gave me an impromptu birthday party, I wore a dirty hoodie, cried for most of it, and during some moments, felt guilty for giving myself a moment to enjoy things. In expressing this guilt to my mom, not for sympathy, solely for sharing feelings with my best friend, she voiced how much we needed our friends, how much we needed our family and how much she needed me. Me? Me. I looked at her with watery eyes and squeezed out a whispered, ".. but I need you". We do. We need each other. And this "need" is wonderful. My friends and family have driven me to the hospital. One of my friends paid my mom's cell phone bill. My family has sent care packages with food and toiletries when I've decided to sleep at the hospital. Hospital this. Hospital that. Where did these amazing beings come from?! They were there, happy, reassuring me constantly that they wanted to be there. And my mom? My phone is ringing non stop with concerned friends, well wishes. Text messages of heart emojis. Her room filled with flowers. Cards. Visitors.

We spent both of our birthdays in hospital rooms. We spent both of our vacations, here. Today we told each other, we wouldn't have it any other way and we promised each other we would no longer shy away from asking for help, there is no shame in needing help. Thank you, universe, for reminding the both of us, just how much we have.
Spent a Friday in Transcona, and it definitely got weird.
Perhaps in Slytherin you’ll make your real friends, those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends. 🐍
Take one down, pass it around.
One of the biggest things in my iddy biddy world.
Tu crois qu'on joue?
Someone was vigorously knocking on the door while I took this selfie.
"Mom, you've got such great fashion sense but we need to talk about me getting lost in this mess all the time. Also, do you NEED this much wool?"
Mirrors as dirty as our jokes.
Few queens.. and a Chris.
