A Black Cloud

It is no secret that I have been living under a big black cloud these days. It is frustrating because I do not like to rely on others for comfort or for advice or for anything really. I am a do-er. I do not like folks to know my problems, because I would rather fix their's than deal with mine.

Anyway, this big black cloud and the events unfolding beneath it, have turned me into the needy friend. I don't like to be the needy friend. I feel like I am sucking the life out of those around me - as the needy friend is sometimes wont to do - and I hate it. It isn't all about me.

So, if I've sucked the life out of you recently, I am truely sorry. Did I tell you I know CPR? Cause I can blow the life back in ya if need be. ;)

Anyway, I am working on my issues, and myself. I've got the love and support of a few wonderful friends, and the rest of you will just have to be subjected to my meloncholy on a more haphazard basis. So, rather than continue to be a drain on my patient readers . . . I will allow this to entertain you as it does me!

Hope you are doing and feeling better. Real friends want what is good for you on the inside, not just a feel-good for a short while on the outside. You are good. Sometimes we need to be reminded of that. Praying for better days ahead for you, Oddybobo! Relax and have some kimpap outside under the trees.

Ah, Oddy, lean on us! Lean on all of us, just the way we leaned on our friends when things got tough for us.

Do you think I managed to quit drinking and save my family by myself? Who, besides great doctors saved me after my stroke? I leaned on my friends and loved ones, just exactly as they leaned on me.

Oddy, my darling young friend, you are strong. You are tougher than woodpecker lips but no one is strong all the time. I know you, although we've never met. You are and have been the one everyone leaned on whenever they felt weak. Well, take a turn yourself. Take the love and help you need from all of us. We need to use it so we can make more. And you need to take it to build yours back up.

You hate to lean, I know. The funny thing is, your friends will be glad you turned to them, it means you trust us and know we care. That's one of the hardest lessons in life but there it is. I think it's the last lesson in love.

I hate those U** spambots...I've had to utilize super-industrial pesticide to keep them away.

But silly stuff aside...I think I's so hard to let go when you're the one everyone turns to. If you let go, everything else will fall to pieces. If only, only, only, I knew that someone else COULD pick up the pieces.

But there are sweet young faces that keep you from daring to find out...

Hugs to you Sweetie... And that's a great pic - what a cutie pie!

A cutie like that must make at least one good ray of sunshine through your black cloud.

Hey, you've got a great little kid, and don't have to follow the Browns.
