My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Miguel Vega.
Today was my last day at work before I go on leave for three weeks. My Grandma's really sick, so I'm flying to Portugal with my family first thing in the morning so we can all say goodbye to her.
Portugal has been my second home my whole life. I grew up in L.A but my summers were always spent in Portugal with my Grandma. She's the last of our family who still lives there, so this trip is going to be tough. Saying goodbye to her, and having our last moments there with her.
I feel okay about it. She's ninety-five years old, and led an incredible life, so even though I hate that we're losing her, I know that every day of her life was filled with love and happiness. It's hard to be sad about that.
Maybe it's really lame for a thirty-five year old man to admit this, but I want a life just like hers. A great marriage, great kids and to put everything I have into making those relationships work.
Look at me, getting sentimental. I need to go to bed. Tomorrow's going to be a long day.
P.S I am going to be out for the day so I won't be commenting much, but I'll be back on track tomorrow! Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for all your comments!
