Still Grieving my Papa
My name is Tinayja and I am 13 years old. It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my Papa. And it’s also been a while since I’ve spoken to my Papa’s wife. My Papa’s wife’s name is Sonya, and she is also my grandma. I love both of them a lot, but my Papa is my ride or die. I miss him so much, and I wish he never had to go as he did. If you do not understand what I’m saying, my Papa passed away a couple of years ago. And I’ve been hurt ever since. My brother, my cousin, and I were sitting down on the floor in our living room because my mom said she needed to tell us something, and that’s when the bad news started coming in. our mom told us that our Papa wasn’t going to make it because he was hurt too badly. My Papa had a really bad stomach, and he was sick. My cousins and I always had to rub his feet, and it was gross. But now we wish we could do that again. So now that I know mostly everything in life, I know that you should spend time with your grandparents, sick family, and parents because one day they are not going to be there and you’re going to wish you were there or you spent time with them.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
