I recently traveled 3.5 hrs back home for my aunt’s funeral (dad's sister). I’ve missed them all SO much.
My visit left me with many regrets (a feeling I’m not used to).
With the power of Facebook, I sent the following message to some of those family members:
I want you all to know just how much I love you.It never gets easy to say you’re sorry and announce your failures. I just hope these wounds will now begin to heal and we will be as close as we once were.
I am so sorry for being away for so long. To be 100% honest with you... it was my HUGE weight gain that kept me away. I was.. am SO embarrassed with what I've done to myself that I wanted to wait until I was "back to normal".
Where did that get me? Missing seeing my tia. Missing telling her how much I love her. Giving her a hug and seeing her smile one more time.
I love you all SO much and I don't ever want to miss a chance to tell you. I don't ever want to miss a chance to hold you and let you know just how much you mean to me. I think of you all often and love you ALWAYS.
