More for you…Spend your time to those who love you unconditionally. not with those who love you only when the condition is right for them.
“You want to take a ride?” Let’s ride; for life. It’s forever, a long track going through a dark tunnel. It’s going to be frustrating at times and it will be shaky where it will slow you down, then speed you up. You will maintain to stay steady to get where you’re going, what you are about to face or what you’ll be part of. The surprise’s in life is like a breath of fresh air. Bless the fresh air with a deep breath and hold it as long as you can. And then the unexpected surprise is when you’re breathing, frozen by the bad news that a friend or family member you knew all your life, you’ll never see again. These are the times when the cold dark nights bring lonely feelings of being the only one in the tunnel. But your journey must continue, that just slows you down. It’s not you, it’s the tunnel. It’s full of unexpected surprises. As you jump onto the other track, you move on, knowing that the fear of death may cause you – your life but everybody has to die. It’s a detour and you’re moving but not going anywhere, one big circle and you’re getting frustrated. No spouse, no family, kids or dog. Going every morning to the same pay check, nowhere job so that the government can have you on file. It’s Friday and your check is divided in percentages to take care of the city and the unfortunates of the world. It’s your air, you have to exhale and if that’s all you got, let your soul smell that fresh air. The day might be over but still continues the long dark tracks and the tunnel looks like forever. You wonder if you’re going to make it, you become a nervous wreck while things start to hit you all at once; it’s like a thunderstorm making its way right at you. As you say your prayers hoping to get through this, you will be blessed in the morning – taking that deep breath and holding it as long as you can.
What is family? Mother, father, your siblings, nieces, nephews’ aunts, uncles and a whole lot of cousins. Getting together, maybe once a year or every holiday, to enjoy the moments you will share with the ones you can’t stand and the ones you love. Whether it’s good or bad, sweet or sour, you know that these moments you will enjoy for the rest of your life. It will be that one afternoon or night that everybody gets together having fun and talking about that drunken uncle of yours who comes by because he knows there’s going to be liquor there. He doesn’t eat anything all day and won’t leave until the liquor is gone. But he’s family and he going to come by to enjoy a nice holiday meal surrounded by his family and you either love him or hate him. Everybody has one in their family. Or that thief of a nephew and your drug addicted brother comes over and you have to put everything in your bedroom that you think they’ll steal and lock the door. But their family and you either love them or hate them. It’s all about family. You sit around and tell stories, let them know what you been up to, letting them know if you doing good or bad. And maybe, just maybe they might give you a hand because that’s what it’s all about, helping each other. It’s love or hate but families weren’t meant to be that way and thus far everybody has a detour in their journey. They’re the ones you don’t see or hear from but there is a moment in your heart about that family member that made you laugh and cry and cry and laugh and you couldn’t stand them. BUT THAT IS FAMILY. And that day the stories you share with other family members make you say “hum,” I wonder where or what they’re up to. Family is what makes or breaks us. Without family there is no life. Life is just a moment and the greatest moments you will ever remember, is the moments with your family, whether you love them or hate them.
Yo, I’m not the one who vacates my whole weekend to watch the NFL draft or watch the combine or for that matter watch the trucks pull out of Fenway Park heading to Florida for spring training. When the season starts I’m there, give me my fantasy team and I’m on my way. Other than that, do what you free agents do. Go to the team that fits you best or what they say, “I’ll do what’s best for my family.” Which means if the team pays me more that won two to three games last season, maybe I can feed my family? Like Roger Clemens referred to being close to his family when he decide to play in Toronto, yea back the brinks truck up to the back door because the family and grandma are going to eat pretty good. Just say it, don’t take us the fans on an insult trip through the back woods and over the river to the ball park. I understand football players, get what you can get, it’s a short career. If an owner thinks your worth 20 million then take the 20 million. Look I don’t care what an owner pays his players; they’ll get it out of you, the fans, to cover the check. So keep going to the games paying those ridiculous prices for beer, pretzels and hot dogs, with your brand new pair of binoculars sitting in the stands with ten layers of clothes on to watch the game on the jumbotron.-next.
Now that Revis is going back to the Jets the next GM move is to sign Fireman Joe, for two years.-next.
Sandoval was bad mouthing the Giants about them not showing him respect, wait until he goes 0-4 with 2Ers in Fenway.-next.
I think Chip knows what he’s doing.-next.
Who would you rather have throwing you the ball, Tom Savage, Brain Hoyer or Ryan Mallet? AJ, get out of Houston now while your legacy is still at stake.-next.
Dropping a hundred dollars for the Maywheather-Pacquiao fight, I had that five years ago.-next.
Kentucky is not the best team in the country; the Knicks would blow them out -maybe.-next.
Without three Hall of Famers around, Rondo doesn’t look so good, “who’s paying on that contract now?” Nice move Danny.-next.
I wouldn’t be surprise if Mark Sanchez goes to the Bills, a perfect fit – it will be like playing for the Jets.-next.
Can the Seattle Seahawks get any better; “Wilson to Graham.” is what you’re going to hear all season then the Super bowl.-next.
Ok, enough with the potholes Rhode Island. This happens every winter, every time it snows or you know, every time something falls out of the sky. It creates these gigantic holes in the street, not the side of the street but in the middle, on the off ramp and in your driveway. And then you see the guys on the back of a dump truck full of black steamy asphalt trying to fill the holes, “I mean really.” Some of them don’t even get out of the truck, they just let it fall and then you have two guys with shovels putting a patty cake on it. While all this is happing, there’s traffic from downtown Pawtucket to Central Falls to Blackstone St. Cumberland. Just go back twenty to twenty-five years ago and thank all the crooks that were serving in the political offices of Rhode Island. Taking short cuts to save money here and then taking of the top. We have our glamours downtown with a fancy new mall with a Cheesecake Factory inside. So we have to deal with the pot holes. So in any event, you have to call your local City Hall to report a family of four stuck in a pot hole – let them know the victims are on foot.
Hello, if I wanted to watch And 1, I would go to my collections of CD’s, blow the dust off the five that I’ve collected and watch And 1. That’s what I see in every NBA game with three minutes left in the fourth quarter, oh did I mention it has to be close. What is this? No more X’s and O’s, please can a coach draw up a play to set the shooter up? Or is that asking too much. Because watching Lebron James, James Harden and any other James to dribble the ball at the top of the key for twenty seconds and then pull up for a fifty footer is getting boring. Yo this is the NBA not a lot of people make the NBA. With all the talent you’ve been blessed with, you end up in my And 1 collection or better yet in the Rucker Park Hall of Fame. Don’t get me wrong, them dudes can ball and I do enjoy watching it but this is the NBA. Next thing you know you are going to have Cedric the Entertainer MC’ing every Cleveland home game saying “oh baby” “oh baby.” Yo, what am I watching man, the NBA or the mix And 1 CD tapes. There’s a reason why only one player played in the NBA from the And 1 Classic, Rafer Alston, aka ‘skip to my lou’. You have to learn how to actually “play the game.” Thanks Herman Edwards. Pick and roll, double stack pop out, high pick, low pick and slash the middle, anything that has to do with fundamental basketball. Ask or watch Tim Duncan. Hey I got an idea, pull out some of them old Celtics-Lakers games. We all know who the ball was going to, Bird or Kareem and they wasn’t dribbling the clock down at the top of the key to the last second to step back and pull up for the three. It would be a set play for either or. I know this generation wants to see the deadly cross-over, ankle-breaking step back pull up for a fifty foot shot when the defendant hits the parquet. It’s all good. I like that too but sometimes I like to see a game. Jon Stocking and Karl Malone days with the pick and roll and give and go. It’s just much better basketball for my time, three hours that is. When I can just tune in for the last three minutes and watch street ball. Look all I’m saying is “just give me a game!” “MAN!”
I read this on ks had to post it, hope you don’t mind. Thanks.
We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.
We believe they will always travel on this train with us.
However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.
As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant – our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.
Many will go so unnoticed that we won’t even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.
A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers…
and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.
The mystery of this fabulous journey is:
We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get of
So, we must live in the best way – adjust, forget, forgive and offer the best of what we have.
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat… we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.”
Thank you for being one of the important passengers on my train… don’t know when my station will come… don’t want 2 miss saying: “Thank you”
Thank you all for being part of this journey.
