Hello fellow bloggers, non-bloggers, the curious cats, lovers, friends, and family.
I know you’re probably thinking, “Damn, where has she been?” Or not, because my reality check is that you’re not thinking about “Hazzle Joy’s” blog at all. Wait, what? She writes? Okay, now I’m just getting carried away…
I came across this idea to start a web blog series titled, “Dear Maliah.” In my previous blog entries I wrote about her, but for those of you too lazy to scroll to the next page, she is my 2-year-old niece who passed away last October of 2011. My cousin and his wife lost their first daughter and our whole family’s lives changed forever. Not to say the least that other family deaths didn’t hurt because they all did.
Maliah’s life represented something extraordinary in it that she helped me realized so many things about my life and the other lives around me.
I’ve lost inspiration to write the story of my own life because writer’s block hit me hardest and I had no idea where to go with my words.
Now I’m back. I’m ready to further my dreams, goals, ambitions, and aspirations. I never understood the true power of my personal words, but here, I will shine light on why I feel like what I have to say truly matters.
Stay tuned to enter the ride of my life, although, I’ve already been riding the roller coaster, but here I will allow you to enter my mind, my world, and thoughts; you will be reading things I’d be telling Maliah as she watches us from above along with our other beloved family and friends who have passed away.
Thank you Maliah Francesca Andrada for inspiring me and everyone else around me. I love you forever and you are still alive in our hearts and memories forever and always.
Love Always & Forever your Tita (aunt),
