It’s been awhile since we’ve talked. I know A LOT  of people told you things that weren’t true of me.  When I saw what was happening, instead of trying to defend myself I shut down. Some people were telling me you never really cared which is why I went on that rant.  There are certain people keeping you away from your true friends.  I pray you are ok.  I’m always, always, always, always…… if you need to talk.  Do not be afraid.  We’ve known each other decades, I have never done anything to you that should indicate otherwise.  Most of what is told to you is out of jealousy. And manipulation. If you’re truly happy, let’s talk.  If you’re stuck, let’s talk.  If you just want to visit, or Bible study, let’s talk.  The kids miss their, “uncle.”

We have been through far too much to let our friendship die because someone else says so. Life is too short. I’ve already survived cancer. And still, tomorrow isn’t promised.  I will always love you.

See you

I’m anxious to see you this weekend.  I’ve begun working on a flash drive of articles and pictures on you. So far, I have over 100 articles from teen magazines, from way back in the day. I want so much to show you these.

I begin vacation Monday night. Would love to watch the season premier of HAHN with you Tuesday. Please.

Thank you.  Always here. Forever. You’re stuck with me. No matter what. Thirty-two years is a long time……..don’t be afraid. Just take a deep breath and go!

Get your butt here  the weekend of May 18-21. I don’t care what you have planned. Cancel it. Come alone. Please. We NEED to talk. God has been telling me things to tell you. Please. One weekend is all I ask. I deserve that much. You need my support. Thanks My address is in the About section of Facebook. She doesn’t need to come with you. Don’t repeat the past. It’s gotten you no where. Love you.

Sadness and hope 

Once in a while, we have someone enter Our Lives who changes is forever. Sometimes that person doesn’t even know their impact on our lives. And sometimes, I wonder if they even care. I have one such friend that I have known for over 30 years. And lately is that person has been having hardships after hardships. But instead of reaching out to me, a friend he’s known for a long time, someone he can trust no matter what and someone who will love him unconditionally. He reaches out to someone whom I believe has other intentions. Someone who spoke badly in the past and lied about other people, just to get close to this person. And I am to the point of throwing up my hands and walking away from the situation because I can no longer get through or reach them. I guess this is best sometimes. Even though I love the person’s going through trials and hardships with all my heart, I need to walk away and let them sink or swim. And maybe, they will see that I am more trustworthy and Care deeper than those who say they do. Sometimes when you love someone so much you do just have to let go and let God deal with them. My only hope is that this person will wake up and see that there are many many  crabs trying to pull them down to the bottom of the bucket that they don’t realize are doing so. But I can see perfectly clear what is happening. All I can do, is be there when it’s all over.

To Be Loved

I want to feel loved.  I know my parents and kids love me.  But, when you’re in a relationship and still feel alone and unloved, I guess is bad.

I long to have someone show they love me in ways that make me smile.

I long for someone to put their arms around me from behind.

I long for passionate love making. Not just, “I want to stick it in ya.” Or, “Lube it up.”  Even for one night.

I want to hear that I am their world.

I want someone to miss me.  And miss them in return.

I want to feel loved…..

I want someone to tell me they love me as much as I love them and mean it, even if we can’t be together all the time.

I’m tired of the sadness and loneliness.  I would rather actually be alone, than to be with someone who makes me feel worthless.

Stuck, still

I don’t know how much more I can take.  I have never felt so unloved in all my life. True, he buys the groceries…only what he wants. If I ask for something, he asks why I need it. But, when his dad picks him up from work, which is 99% of the time, they go eat breakfast. If I see something I would like to eat for breakfast, he tells me, I have food at the house.

If his parents need money, or cook something, they get the money first, and the food gets eaten before anything I fix does. I know you’re supposed to love your parents and honor them, but when a person is almost 36 years old, it’s time to be on their own.

He has his dad pay his credit card bills for him.  He gets the money order and gives it to his dad to mail off.  He buys food for his dad to cook for at work, but when I want something for the house, he hesitates.  I have to remind him that there are other people besides him or me living there.  I have children.  I am praying so hard that I can get ahead financially. Just when I think I am, boom….I’m overdrawn.

He has told me I’m a failure as a mother.  My daughter is a failure in his sight. I’m lazy. I have medical problems….but can’t afford to have them dealt with.  They tend to wear me out dealing with the pain sometimes.

I am praying so hard….I wish I had a fairy godmother like Cinderella.

I already do all the cleaning, except his laundry.  Everything else, I do.  IF his dad doesn’t cook for us, as far as lunches for work (he and I both work at the same place, same shift), he will ask me what am I going to fix.  He NEVER offers to fix something. And when I do fix something for us, his dad does too and that wins out.

I’m about ready to give up!!! I have never deplored someone so much. God please send and angel or something to help me!!!


Musical Genius

When I was five years old, I heard a wonderful song titled, “Mandy.” Shortly after I inquired who sang it, I received my first 45 vinyl record, of the song, from the artist, Barry Manilow. I was an instant fan of his music. My first 8-track tape was, “Even Now,” by Barry. From that moment on, I acquired almost all his record albums. I am currently working on my CD collection. I have seen the man recently in concert for the third time. He never fails to entertain. He has never failed to come out with the most brilliant music.

He is truly a musical genius. And legend.
