Let’s just shut up, and eat these waffles!!! A true life ode to real families❤

I’ve seen family in a different light these days. Family pressure and elderly needs have changed the living dynamics of every immediate family member…to an extent. If things have not changed physically, then it has changed in our daily conversations. Some have grown closer and some, like myself, have checked out in a way, lest I drown in the decay of family secrets and bickerings….might I remind you all, when the elderly in the family fall ill and/or needs extra help…fatigue pays an unwanted visit, along with pestering, along with exhaust, along with impossible expectations, abuse of time, which holds hands with anger, resentment, and TRUTHS , come out like ants 🐜🐜to a sugar cube. I’m there when I can be, and protector of my little family (which consists of my 8yr old and I)…most of the time. Even when it comes to family….(come correct or dont come at all). By now, everyone gets my point. Coming from a background where Native American culture and pride is prominent….family will kill themselves caring for the elderly before they reach out for outside help….when “burn out” is an understatement. My Mommas profession has worn her to the core, now she is caregiver to her Father, which has rubbed me the wrong way, because she is the only Mom I have….yet not the only child of her Father. I pray to not lose control of my tongue and spill the beans on old Pops about a life we all know about…but he does not think so. His elderly commands have become a lot more tight and selfish, and have fallen on deaf ears with me, as they are a burden to face rather than a Blessing. As my Heavenly Father has taught me….keep a bridle on your mouth. (Psalm 39:1) . Even so, I love this family of mine. From the innocense to the vile…every last member is important, and have shaped my outlook in many ways. I’ve learned to appreciate my “no-nonsense” approach to life. If I am not spiritually well, mentally fit, physically healthy, then my child will suffer. There is not enough love for culture….for me to compromise….<him>. No ones burdens will be carried on my shoulders….for I don’t even carry my own. And generational monstrosities have nothing to do with me. So what *Y’all could Not fix, will not be a job that me and mine handle. I put a foot , made with iron, down. When everyone finally understands, that we will not bathe in the same dirty water, we retain our respect for one another, and eat waffles together….LIKE FAMILIES SHOULD! 😡❤👊❤
