Why is doing right the right thing hurt so much but feel so right!!

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Today I had to do one of my very hardest yet most right things. I actually had finally had enough of watching a family members child be physically and mentally abused by his father. To make it worse the mother (my relative) is emotionally cruel and plays psychological mind games with the the child. So after sitting back and watching this situation continue to get worse I called and reported ALL of the problems and events to Child protective services. I know that I have most likely caused her to snap and she will either never speak to me again and or just start blackballing me to the world. BUT, you know what I DON'T CARE!!!!!!! I was sooooo sick and tired of watching this situation continue and yet NO ONE was defending the child. I am happy that I know that something will NOW hopefully be done, but I am sad that this child will have to go thru all of the investigation stuff. The child knows that I was VERY upset that his mom refused to follow the directions that the child's own doctor said to do, and was just going to once again sweep it under the rug, and etc..... So mom and I had a pleasant (NOT) exchange of words!! I told her that she was just as guilty as the father was by NOT taking action. That went over like a lead balloon or maybe more like hiroshima?? So, I left the house knowing that the right thing to do was to stand up for the child and protect him. I am so glad that I did, and I only wish that someone would have stood up to protect me from my abusers when I was a child. I REFUSED to let history repeat its self... Now with GOD'S help It will all work out in the child's best interest and the parents involved will get the help that they need to be able to make themselves better human beings and above all BETTER PARENTS!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are to be congratulated. What you did was hard. What you did was right!!!! humanely right, morally right and right for a child who could not protect themselves. You may have changed not only this child's life, but their children's lives and far into future generations. You have set forth a ripple in time for compassion and kindness. Be proud and sure of yourself, even as your face the inevitable fall out YOU did the RIGHT thing

MY CRAZY WORLD!!!

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Why is it that I feel like I NEVER stop!!!! This past week I had to begin the process of getting my 72 y/o Stepdad moved out of the place he is currently living, and find him a place and all the other fun stuff..... I have found him a nice apt, and its right next door to my house so that works out perfect for both of us. I can help him to maintain his sobriety and also just to be there for each other. He was going to move in to my house for the week or so while I have my Gastric Bypass surgery, to take care of my 3 four legged children for me. But now he will be living right next door. so if all goes according to my plans, He should be able to move in next thursday!!!! WOO HOOO... So if I am bad about doing all my food and etc logging I am sorry, but my family now and always has been my #1 priority in life. I AM eating right (ie: no mickey D's & etc) and I'm drinking my water and being a good girl, well when it comes to my health and well being I am NOT going back to my old BAD habits for ANY ONE OR ANY THING!!!! Now if my metabolism would only cooperate and let me loose a little more weight before my surgery on July 26th. I AM TOTALLY and COMPLETELY committed to living a VERY LONG and HEALTHY LIFE, NO MATTER WHAT OR WHO TRAYS TO GET IN MY WAY!!!! emoticon Until next time my friends, Take care of you and remember to love yourself 1st before loving any other human!!!! emoticon

    Thanks, for the words of encouragement. Janet I am now even in more of a better place because I am removing SO Much of my stress. I am getting my Step Father out of a bad living situation and the lord has opened a door each day on this road to get him situated. I found him the PERFECT place to live, it is a 1-bedroom apt literally right next door to my house!! that way he and "I" can have our space and he can be close enough to spend time together. He is looking forward to it more than I can even explain to you. SO AM I!!!!! I wont have to drive to go see him an to pick him up for VA appts. The best part is he was going to move it to take care of my 4 legged kids during my surgery and now he can just go back and forth. I am so happy I cant stand it. Now my 11 bad disc and my fibromyalgia are not so happy because moving is painful!!! emoticon

I AM JUST WONDERING?????

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

How am I going to deal with all of the challenges that "GOD" has placed before me. I am trying to save my home from foreclosure, and I am trying to figure out where to come up with the $300 I still need to pay the power and one other bill by tomorrow. I am so over this constant struggling to survive every month. I wish that I was physically able to go to work and provide for myself by ever since that dumb bimbo hit my car in 1998 my life has slowly gotten harder and harder to make ends meet. I will say one thing my food expenses have gone down over the last few months that I have been on the pre surgery or as I call it the remove the fatty liver syndrome. I am just so over the every day battles to survive financially, it has gotten so old. I can only hope and pray that "GOD" hears and answers my prayers for help, because I certainly do need it. I am so very thankful for all of my blessings,so dent get me wrong. I am now just VERY anxiously awaiting for my surgery day to get here. I AM so excited about the future and praying for my success with my journey to LIVE a healthy life.

    You might be able to call the united way( they will give you names of organizations that can help) or you might be able to get help through the human resource department with the city you live in. They help people with rent and utlitiy payments here where I live. They may have something that can help you with the 300.

God will not give you anything that you can not handle...just have faith.

Today is the beginning of my journal, FOR ME....

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Well, Is this suppose to be easy?? Putting all of me out here for the world to see?? I am working on a new me!!! I have made a commitment to myself to LIVE... I don't want to end up dead in my 50's all because I was NOT taking care of me, like my mom and her younger brother did. I have promised myself that I will put me and my health before others needs wants and demands. I have never been able to do that ever since I was a child because I was always being told "Now be a good girl and take care of your mom" I would watch her sit and consistently self abuse herself and not take care of her health as the Doctors told her to do. I will NOT be that person, I deserve better and I owe it to myself. "GOD" has opened this door for me and I fully intend to walk through it with my head held high and I know it wont be easy, as it has not been so far. I am all that I have and I want to be the best that I can be so that I can be a better mommy to my wonderful 4 legged babies. I am scared and excited to be on this journey through weight loss surgery and finding me along the way. I love life and all that it has to offer, and so far I have lived a very amazing life doing for others and taking care of others do you see a pattern here???? I matter just as much as in fact I actually matter MORE than anyone else because it will help me to be a better human being all around. I Want to be healthy, and that is the biggest thing. I want to be able to walk my babies around the block, and I want to be able to go back to work even if it is part time only. I am not assuming that these thing can all be achieved with weight loss surgery but I am hoping that it is a start to help me achieve my goals. Well until next time TTFN....
