blown away   Leave a comment

my eldest sister sent me a letter last week saying I was cold, unfriendly bitter and over all not a very nice person.

It hurt my feelings greatly.

Still hurts if you want to know the truth.

I have two siblings and a niece that tell me I need to forgive Carolyn and what she said.

It isn’t about forgiveness.

she said what she thought.

I don’t hold that against her.
Why I do feel is hurt.

This name calling came out of the blue.

Not once in the last 40 years has anyone ever told me I was a cold unfriendly bitter heartless person.
I am not that way.

But because I don’t put forth the effort to spend more time with her and our siblings……I am perceived that way.

Just blows my mind.

even now a week later it still blows my mind.

I talked to my niece today, (My sister’s daughter) and she said her mother didn’t mean to come across that way.

Well regardless of what she meant, anyone calling anyone a cold bitter unfriendly heartless person isn’t going to get a hug and warm smiles from the person being accused of these unflattering words.

They say time heals all wounds.

And I believe it.
But it is going to be a while before I have anything to say to my eldest sister.

very fall like weather in Iowa today   Leave a comment


it is quite cool here today.
not even seventy degrees


to me this is perfect weather.

but I know a lot of people think it is too cold.

not to me……

it is windy and cloudy and just over all nice and cool, which is great after those hot temps

Feels like early October today.
