Random acts of Kindness...J and K

OK...just when you are having one of the worst periods in your life, people reach out and pull you back to earth. Today, my sister's sister in law, Karen, called me out of the blue. She had heard that Rick had been really ill and in the hospital and that I was having a tough time. She brought us two prepared meals. I sat in my room and cried. I have been so overwhelmed and this coming week does not look like it is going to get any better. It was just such a kind suprise. I don't know if there would be anyway to let her know just how much that meant to me. I try to be that kind of friend, and hope that I have made such an impact on others like that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Karen.
My peeps called me today too. Both of them called me, one after the other. I was going to back out on a class today and they got me moving and getting ready for the class. I did feel guilty going because Rick was stuck with Kids having projects that needed to be completed this weekend-one being a teenager with an attitude...but I have put up with that same attitude for the two weeks that he was so sick. I needed that break more than I knew. I got the album put together, but I need to go over to my dad's house to dig for pictures. I am doing the album about him, I think. I started a book about mom and am having too many emotional problems right now to work on it. I miss her so much ...she would have gotten me to go for help. It's not that I am against counseling, but I have been three times and have never gotten any advice that I didn't already know....I think I need an ECT (electoconvulsive therapy...also known as shock treatment)...kill a few brain cells and make yourself forget about what is bothering you.

The letter "J"
I love a good Joke.

I love stawberry Jam. Bonne Maman is my favorite brand. Some warm toast with a little butter and a thick layer of Jam. Yummm....

Jeans...who doesn't love them? I can now wear ones with a real waist band instead of an elastic waistband.

The letter "K"

I am so fortunate to have two best friends. One of them is my friend, Karen Fernkorn. I love her. She always makes me laugh. I want to be like well put together, such business saavy, and she is beautiful inside and out. She has a sweet hubby and two beautiful boys. I love her creativity. I just plain love the girl. last name. Glad that I married that man of mine. He is my best friend and my love. We really do complement each other so well. I am so lucky to have had him for these past 23 years....I am blessed by this.

Pam, if your counseling isn't working then you aren't at the right person. Sometimes you have to see several people to get the right one. Keep on searching, cuz its worth it.

Okay, the above comment was from Val logged onto Paige's blog. Sorry!

By the way, I'm sure you have made the kind of impact you would like. Not only do you do that through your line of work but you are a very generous person!

I for one am SO glad you came to the class yesterday! I know I laughed a whole lot more than if you wouldn't have been there! Hope you had a good time and could relax at least a little!! :)

I'm glad you came too, Pam. The three of you and your crazy chatter is just what I needed, too! I had fun, and also enjoyed meeting new people. Hang in there!
