When It's Over

Today my Grandpa Mangialardi passed away. I loved as much as my own father because that is how he treated us, like we were ALL his kids. He always put us first and made sure we were taken care of. I am in the "now what" state of mind. When it is over what do you do? I love you Grandpa and I am sure you are in heaven, kicking a soccer ball around. After all, that is what you came to America do to and man am I glad you did!

With Age

I have found the older I am the more I have become opinionated about things. Growing up I was always so sweet and go with the flow, and now if I have a problem with something, you will know! I don't think I am mean, I just want to make sure people know here I stand. I am still the peacemaker and will always apologize if I am wrong, but now that I have a husband and son, I will fight to death to protect my family. I think age, well experience, will do that to people. You live, make mistakes and learn from them. On the way you can help others who have gone through the same thing. In spite of my still-evolving personality, I just hope I am not one of the old people in the nursing home no one wants to be around lol.
