the past............the future

Friday, July 05, 2013

My ex daughter in law came and saw me the other day (it has been 7 years since the son and her split up) and I was absolutely completely enamored and happy for her! She has spent the last 7 years in hell. I have never seen a more unhappy person in my life everything that was wrong with her life she blamed on others. And yes I am guilty of some of that behavior this last year and no I do not want to live that way. She was absolutely glowing I have never seen her with her nails done or in decent clothes or with any jewelry on. She always wore sweats and very over-sized clothing when she was in the family.

She made a statement that really touched me when she was here. She said" a friend made a comment to me about the way I was living. She told me that I could either wallow in self pity over the losses I have suffered or use them as a learning and growing experience and get on with life!!" I can only say that I am proud of her as she acts like the "other" person that I first met and loved. And she also made such an impression on me with her positives changes and gave me such inspiration.

So here is to Cena may we both find happiness within ourselves and live our lives to the fullest!! Thank you for the lesson you gave me! May you continue to stay in my life and be the girl I first met!

Yes, it really is all up to us with the decisions and choices that we make and what we believe in our heart and what we think and what we speak.

Have an awesome weekend letting love rule and reign in our life. emoticon emoticon

    I liked this blog. It proves that people do change. I'm glad that u were able to sit and have a conversation with her.
So how have u been? Do u still have ur grandkids? Any more trips and pics? How was ur 4th? We did nothing. Sat round and played with our new internet Wifi. I had been using my android phone for everything. Its nice to be back on a real computer.
Well alot has been going on.
Hope things work out for the best for ya.

  that's the truth. what happens to us isn't as important as how we react to it. stay upbeat.
