This is a story about how I received free baking soda. It’s very personal and it’s my experience. So my Oldest brother Chris passed away. And when he died he had a stockpile of baking soda. My mother used to go shopping with him and he was always buying baking soda but she didn’t think anything of it.
After he passed she found all of this baking soda that was just being stored away. You see my brother did not want to run out. So he just bought and bought and bought baking soda. So my mother had all of this baking soda and because of my brother I became obsessed with baking soda too. I used to use it anyway but I started to research all the ways you can use baking soda (which is a completely different story).
So I started cleaning with it and taking baths with it and putting it in my lemon water and the uses just go on and on and on. So because of my brother I began to use non-toxic cleansers. So I feel that my brother wanted me to be healthy and because of him, I have become more healthy. (Thank you Chris!! I love you my Brother!!! More to you later.)
So then I had still too much baking soda. So what am I going to do with it? So I discovered bath bombs. And I do have to say that I have become obsessed with bath bombs. As a matter of fact I think everyone should start taking baths because we might have some flooding. So I am going to take a REALLY LONG BATH tonight.
So to my brother Chris I just want to tell you that you are a genius. You were just born a little bit too early. But you wanted us to be ahead. And sometimes when we were younger, you could be really annoying. You used to tighten the jars SUPER TIGHT!!! I mean Papi couldn’t even open the jars. In any case you were annoying. And very difficult to live with. And you did not like to share. But you spoke your mind. And you did not care what other people thought of you. You were into some serious meditation back in the 70’s. And the older I get I am discovering more and more about you. And I just feel like you were born to teach me the way. If it hadn’t have been for you I wouldn’t have stumbled across some of the most amazing books ever printed.
So for that I just want to thank you and to know that I do feel your presence. I know that we going to reconnect soon when I am ready. Right now I’m not quite ready yet. But I know it’s going to be very soon.
Some of your favorite sayings, “I’ll kick it around.”, “Something stinks”, “Nobody will know the difference.” “Dear Old Dad”, “Hello”, “Why don’t you get your own guacamole?” We won’t get into people’s names because that’s just way too much. That’s not all of them but what I can think of right now. But he was hilarious and each one of those sayings has a story. Some of them are hilarious and others are just things he used to say frequently.
Anyway I love you!! Thanks for being the most amazing brother a little sister could ever have. I forgive you for all the stupid stuff that kids do. You have the most beautiful heart and an amazing mind and soul. I only wish you had some kids so that they would have inherited your amazing brain. But I think we all got pretty lucky despite everything.
