Chocolate therapy

Friday, August 31, 2012

I chose to go to the chocolate therapist instead of getting on line and talking to my spark friends.
Instead of calling friends who could have talked me down. I wanted so badly to be with my sisters but they have not included me in their plans... I act as if I do not care. But I do..
I am going to call my friend ( sister by choice ) and See if she would mind meeting me today for our weekly walk... We have been walking since 1997. What a blessing in my life.
I am so grateful.

This is the picture of the hundred year old camphor tree that had to be removed because it had a fatal disease. It was on the corner by a business called Java City which had been the meeting place for every one who wanted a safe place to meet. Parts of the wood will be used.
The shade it provided on a hot summer day will be sorely missed and it will be many years before another tree will shade the area so beautifully...

    I am so sorry you feel that way. I have two older sisters and I have felt that way before too.

    I hear your pain, and I wish I could take it all away!! However, what I can do is be here for you today, and assure you that you will never be alone. We will support each other through the good times and the bad times. We will not turn to food for comfort!!!

    I hate that suburbia is where they name streets after trees they have cut down.

    This hit home for me. Years ago I experienced the same sadness over being excluded by my sisters and mom...like you, pretending I didn't care was about all I could do. Mom's gone...my sisters live 400 miles away now, and I do what I've done in the past (which is what you have done) go to those who love us (sisters by choice) for the warmth we need and deserve.

    This community also provides the safety we covet when we expose our feelings. Just try us!!

    About that chocolate therapist....if you're going to indulge, try Godiva's chocolate pearls. They're a bit pricey, but they're small and a few take care of much.
