Family isn’t always blood

All I have ever wanted in life is a family. Brothers and sisters to look out for me. Parents that were proud of me. A husband that i can spend my life with. I mastered the husband part. The family part has been rocky. I no longer have contact with my father. Due to my depression and anxiety, I just felt that it was too toxic to have a father that added to my mental instability. I have one blood brother and although things are OK at the moment, we have never had a strong relationship.

I’ve had many people come and go in my life, and make promises they just couldn’t keep. Almost a year ago I met a friend online that has been more of a brother to me from far away, then my blood brother. I know your asking yourself how could someone you never met be like family. I will tell you how. To have someone care about you on a daily basis. To show concern and worry when you haven’t called or woken up at a certain time. To want to spend time laughing and just talking about the day to day events that go on in our lives. He has given me these things and so much more. I can honestly feel that he cares about me and my well being. It’s a great feeling. I only hope that he knows how grateful I am for his love, friendship, and the role he plays in my life. Although I struggle daily with my mental demons, I can honestly say I’m happy and very blessed. I feel like God has blessed me.

Kansas City Royals Free Agency: Who is staying and Who is going.

Since we have three players with contracts coming up for renewal, I’ve decided to write a post about which of the three I think the Royals will be able to keep on the roster.

Those Leaving

Parting is such sweet sorrow. But, we won’t be able to afford to keep Mike Moustakas (He has a cute butt), Eric Hosmer, or Lorenzo Cain, when their contracts expire. Lorenzo Cain Will be the first to go because he is the most affordable and still playing at a high level. Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas will cost too much to keep, but the Royals organization will seek high prospects for them. Moustakas and Hosmer have the same agent, Scott Boras, and he always seeks the highest amount of any agent. This hurts the royals chances for signing Moose (The Moose is loose!) and Hosmer.

The Keepers

The only one that the who I feel that the Royals will be able to keep will be Alcides Escobar, who’s contract also expiring, but should be easier to resign and is playing well.
