Siblings

I have 2 younger sibilings - Michelle and Steffon and here's my take on me being the eldest...

It's tough, but I think having younger sibilings helped to push me along in my life.

Scenerio #1

I was just trying to make it my senior year. I wasn't in my right mind to finish with the flair that you all have become familiar with... I like to think that it was my little brother that helped me hang on to what little compassion I had left in my soul.

He was my little guy, my heartbreaker, my cutie pie. I enjoyed feeling important to someone. Steffon let me feel that way...

When I dropped out of college the first time around (1998), I was exhausted! I knew I needed a break after the rough senior year I'd had, but I let people persuade me into going to KCKCC...

Scenerio #2

During the time that I was taking a sabbatical from higher learning, I got preggers, had a kiddle and got a husband. My sister started college somewhere in there. All I could think of was that I was supposed to get my college degree first because I was the eldest. I was suppose to set the example... Some example!

Anyway, they helped propel me to greater things. Steffon helped me hang onto my desire for self-worth and Michelle was a driving factor in me getting my degree (along with Andrew and the need to feel accomplished).

Things haven't always been super-duper, but I am working on it. During my time of self discovery, I let my relationships with them slip. I can only be grateful that I found myself before the foundation of our relationships fossilized. I'm trying to rekindle some of what we had when we were younger and I was less tormented by the realities of life...

BUT!

As it so happened, I was first in our crew to get my college degree! I got mine's in 2006 and Michelle received her's in 2008.

I just wanted to say thanks, Sibilings, for pushing me forward in life...

The pictures are unique in a good way I love your posts. Being a mother is hard but somehow you bring the fun out of it.

Kudos Kesha. Yes, you made us very proud when you graduated from college, as you should have, and set the path for the other two to follow.

Good to have your BIG personality back in action. I enjoy watching you guys interact. You have a way of bringing out the silly side of each of them. Guess it's the inner child you hang onto which translates into your teaching as well. Love it!
