919 South M Street, Tacoma, WA 98405; the first address that I ever learned. My mom, aunts and uncles spent some of their growing up years in this house. There have been weddings and receptions in this house. This house is where I played as a child with my cousins and friends, got into trouble and ate some of my most amazing meals. I walked to school from this house, there were times I lived in this house, my daughter spent her growing up years in this house. This house belonged to my grandmother, Geneva V. Coley (RIP). There are four generations of love and memories that came out of this house.
Although this house is no longer part of my life, the experiences and memories that I had that will live forever in my heart. I went to say goodbye to the structure and though its in a sad state, it made me smile to be standing in the front yard looking up at it.
Just me being me.
