Get a real job!

On the 28th of August, my aunt, my dads sister, passed away from kidney and liver failure, and, she was cremated.
We said our goodbyes over zoom, the services in both the church and the crematorium were streamed live as only a few people could attend in person due to covid restrictions.
It was a very sad day for the whole family. I miss her every day. Its hard to believe she’s actually gone. Hard to believe I’ll never be phoning her on a saturday again like I used to do.
Heres a funny story about her. Every time I’d phone her, she ask me how I was doing, and what I was getting up too. I’d tell her, I’m volunteering now, 2 days a week and I’m loving it. Her reply?
“get a real job, your so clever, dont be volunteering, go out and get a real job and get payed for what you do”.
I’d always laugh at her, my aunt was in her seventies, and worked hard all of her life, she believed in working for what you had, and she believed in working as hard as you could. She didnt get the whole being a volunteer thing. To her, that idea was ludacris.
Every time I think of her saying to me to go out and get a real job, I smile.
She’ll never say that to me again!
Rip, bunny, I love and miss you, forever in my heart, sleep tight.
