First thing first is I would like to thank you for your support in reading my blogs and having such heartfelt comments.
This week is a bittersweet week for me. It is the last week of the internship. I am having mixed feelings about this week due to the fact that I get to go home to the familiar faces of my friends and family. To enjoy the beauty that Idaho has to offer …….. wait a minute let me be frank with you. We all know that the only beautiful thing about Idaho is myself and the potatoes that are served from McDonalds’s and your grandmother’s cooking. In all serious Idaho is a beautiful state and has a lot to offer a person and families but it is only right for some just like any other state. I am excited though to get home and plan on how to move back to Oregon. I have some commitments in Idaho that I need to finish but once finished than time to move on with my life.
The other emotion I am feeling is I don’t want to be separated from the FosterClub staff and these foster kids everyone calls “all-stars” and “L2’s”. I have created a sibling connection with them all. They are what I consider to be my tribe. Some of the tribe might not consider me as their brother but I know deep down they love and will miss their annoying little brother. Why can’t we all be closer in states? Why can’t we all be on a deserted island or even on mars to where we will never lose connection again? Oh right, I know the answer, that is not realistic. I have to remind myself people come and go. People treat you like reading a book some people last a chapter or two, some last only a sentence, and some last till the very end of your book to see the outcome. I know realistically my tribe with stay only for a few chapters or might skip some chapters or just not want to read my book anymore. It is fine cause the same might happen for me with their books. I know we all have our lives back at home to attend and we have to move along our journey of life. Maybe one day we will rule the world together not as individuals but as a unified group. I know my tribe consists of intelligent, resilient, valiant, and mindful leaders. Whatever they set their heart and mind to they will be a force to reckon with and will conquer their goals.
This week on July 12, 2015 I will have to say “till next time” and not “goodbye”. I only say “goodbye” to those who I plan not to see ever again but I say “till next time” to those I plan to see again. I want to finish this week with all the right intentions of living day by day with my tribe also known as my brothers and sisters.
May this be a “till next time” always and forever.
