First Post

Hi all. This is the first post on my new blog. Hopefully most of you reading this will already know me from the other one. The reasons for another blog are many, but mostly because I recently discovered that some people, whom  I would rather did not know my business, were introduced to the other blog and it made me a bit uneasy! So, while I will continue with the other blog, (the usual videos and smart arserry!), I hope to use this one to be more open about myself and my life.

                                                            ***************

This past week has been quite an emotional time for the five of us in our immediate family. One of us had/has major health problems, both physical and mental, and as a family we were/are all hurting. But, after many tears, hugs, car dashes to other parts of the country, trips to the doc, and more tears and hugs, solutions have been found. Wheels have been put in place, and things are looking better!

Many things have been learned this past week by all five of us. The love, and the bonds we share with each other have become stronger. Father & daughter, Husband & Wife, Sister & Sister, Mother & Daughter, Mother & Father.

The future of at least one of us has been changed. Time will tell how this will affect the rest.

Things are not perfect, but we are all much happier today than we were this time last week.

Much Love.  :¬)

  4. Thanks for letting me know about your new home here. You know that I understand. Oh boy, do I understand!!

    I also understand the fear and worry when things go really wrong with one of our nearest and dearest, as you know. I hate that this is happening to your family, but it will be okay. The love that you all have for each other will get you through anything. Lots of love to all of you, and an especially large dose to the one most affected. xxoo

  5. I'm here, I'm here!!! Many hugs to you and yours with the things going on, and I'm very glad to hear things are better than they had been. I hope they continue to improve and that the impact of the one on the rest will be spread around to make the load that much easier to bear. Staying close, sharing love in good times and tough times... that's what makes life worth every tear, every strain, every chortle and every smile. Love to you and your bevy of lovely women... xoxoxoxo

  7. Does this mean I'm one of the "in" crowd?

    Thank you for considering me one of the more trusted connections :)

    Sorry to read of the troubles. As a father of 2, stepfather of 3 and grandfather of 3, you have my empathy and understanding.

    And you have my email if you need another shoulder

  9. Thank you for including me in the people you've invited over. Next time we get together, I'm bringing my famous taco dip and a 12-pack.

    I am glad that your family is pulling together. I've seen difficulties work the other way, pulling people apart, and then there are other problems as well.

  10. Hello my friend,

    I know it's been a while (a long while) but I appreciate that you share this new blog with me. I'm glad to learn that life for you and family is getting better. Sometimes adversity has a way of bringing things into focus for us that clarifies who and what is really important.

    Take care and be well...love to you and family my brother.

    U

  11. I'm here! No, really. Look down. Little more. See, I'm waving and sending good vibes your way.

    You know no matter what, your little merry band of followers [not to be confused with stalkers or cult members] will be here to send love and support to you and yours.

    And now you know why I am "hope" while playing here rather than by the name my parents gave me. ;) xx

  12. Milady; Yes, I do know that you know!
    Thank you, things are improving by the day, and you know, we are beginning to think that what has happened, has happened for a reason. Things are changing, and maybe for the best. As my old Pal is wont to say, "Always look forward, never back"! :¬)

  23. my dear map - i am humbled and honored to be included in those you consider close - and it is a two-way street, you know, my friend, as i feel the same toward you - when a loved one is hurting from whatever source, it is an unsettling time for all - but as you know, love carries us through it all - always - sadly i know only too well from whence you speak, being in the midst of a similar situation with a child and my sister - plus a move across country as i type - but i digress - please know that you and yours are thought of with much much affection and many thanks again for including the wandering gypsy from across the way! peace and love -
