#JusJoJan 2018 brought to you by Linda G. Hill.
During the time I was. in second to sixth grade I was bullied. Almost every day I was humiliated. I didn’t want my mother to know what’s happening. She was sick most of the time.
One day, in the school bathroom a few girls put my head in the toilet. They would throw things at me, I was pushed, and they would eat my food. When my mother learned of the bullying she went to the principal. The difference wasn’t that much, however when I was in sixth grade I met someone who will make a difference in my life.
By the time I went to middle school, I was changing and taking over myself. I didn’t let anyone to embarrass and humiliate me. myself. I’ve to learn to defense myself and as a teenager the word “revenge” sounds sweet. I’ve to give a few punches and at the time it was the only way. My mother wasn’t to thrill and I spend most of the time in trouble.
Anyway, that’s another story for another time.
I’m a coffee drinker. I love coffee since my mother gave me my first sip from her cup. My father also was a coffee lover. If I let him, he would drink coffee all day. That’s one of the things I missed from my dad. I will come from work and he will be waiting to have coffee together. He will ask about my day and we will talk about the movie he was watching or his favorite Spanish soap. Nowadays when I come home it feels empty. My dad is not waiting to have coffee and to share my day. I just sit by myself with my cup of coffee waiting for my grandkids from school. My husband would come from work close to dinner time. When I’m having my coffee, it brings memories of my parents. It makes me feel relax and calm.

The other day I was mentioning to my husband how much weight I’ve lost and no one from my family has said a word. The reason I was making the comment was my sister also has loss some weight. My family has made comments how great she looks. It’s true she looks great; however, why no one has noticed my weight loss. I didn’t get it. I’ve lost 35 pounds and she has loss 20.
However, my sister has bought new outfits in smaller size and for me I’m using the same large pants. Why? Beside I don’t have the time to shop for myself. I would like to wait to lose another 10 pounds. I need to confess I must go shopping. It’s time to join my sister shopping spree. It’s time to get rid of the large pants.
The word indelible makes me think of tattoos. I personally don’t like them it’s painful and permanent in your skin. Also, when you grow older the tattoos look discolored and wrinkle. This is my personal opinion without offending anyone who loves them.
My daughter loves them too. She had five small tattoos. I told her to please don’t get anymore and for now I believe she’s done. However once a while she’s trying to convince myself to have a mother-daughter one, but then again, it’s not for me.
They’re a hilarious commercial on T.V. regarding a girl eating a snicker, meanwhile doing a tattoo what it appears to be a tough guy’s arm. Suddenly he stares at it and says “no regerts”. She keeps eating her snicker saying “sorry”. I love this commercial it makes me laugh. However, it’s made my point to be careful when having a permanent ink.

A memory I will never forget. This picture was taken on July 2008. I was taken chemotherapy and during treatment I didn’t allow any photo. I can’t believe I let my husband convince me to do it.
