Me, Myself, and I

I never will forget the first time that I was invited to dinner at a boyfriend's parent's home. We were sitting there eating and his dad looks at me and says in a sarcastic remark!! "Hummp! I know some of your relatives and you sure have a lot of skeletons in your closet!! I worked with your grandpa a lot of years." Hmmm I thought for a couple of seconds and then very calmly said to him, "Very true! But what can you tell me about me?" He could not tell me anything. From that day on the man seemed to respect me. Funny thing is.... that was just one side of the family!! lol Blood is also thicker than water! This boyfriend was the brother to my aunt's husband. Her father-in-law told the family what he said to me!!! She got mad and said, "Yes and do you know who else she is related too? Me!!!" hehehe Too funny!!

I am responsible for myself. We all live with choices every day. It is your choice to choose what choices that you want to make. I have made a lot of BAD choices in life! Thank the Lord that He forgave me for those choices that I made. It is really hard to eat crow.... but what is really hard is eating those feathers!

I have removed my email address from my journal. Recently I have been receiving spam emails. I use to never get spam emails. That is the only thing that I can relate it to. Sorry if it is an inconvenience to anyone.

Wishing all of you a blessed week with lots of blessings. All of you are in my prayers. God Bless, Janie

Well... you know... they say to be careful your words are not bitter in case one day you have to eat them...

Glad you stood up for yourself!

No one should ever be judged by their relatives.

I know how that goes. Feathers are pretty tough to chew.
Have a great Monday! 'On Ya'-ma

Great entry, Janie. Love the part about eating crow and the feathers being the hardest part. Been there many times.

I've heard that bloggers here can get spam mail but I thought using the code verification helped. I don't blame you for removing your e-mail addy. HUGS

I wish more people would realize we are not exactly the sum of our parents. If every took the time to see the individuality...life would make more sense. (Hugs)Indigo

I like that line about eating crow and the feathers! This was a very fun entry to read and look at. That was so quick minded of you. I can't believe you are 65...you certainly don't look it in the photos! Happy Birthday! Maria
