    Hugs, for whenever you can come around to see them. And, thanks again for letting me have 3/31, when it was your mom's birthday, as well as mine!

    My older son came with me and helped some friends move on Friday, though he wasn't feeling the greatest himself. It is good to have people in your life who come through for you, even when it isn't convenient. My "growing ever dearer" friend takes care of me, too, in some ways. I try to do the same for him as I can, because he, too, was not appreciated as a child as he should have been by his family and suffers low self-esteem issues. He is such a sweetheart, it pleases me to give him some of the love he's missed from his life for so long! I hope he comes to understand how worthy he truly is, just as I hope you do, too, and all of us who struggle with issues of feeling unworthy, for whatever reason those feelings were engendered in us.

    I hope you recover from the cold soon, too.

    What I want to know is, who's going to pay for these crimes against humanity that those b@st@rds are perpetrating against the rest of us?

      some say that if you don;t get that feeling as a small child you can never get it.

      but i don;t believe that.  I believe that good love can come along and heal that hurt place no matter how late in life.

      i did have a good first six years and I need to draw more on that feeling.  my grandparents surrounded me with love when I lived with them.  It was only when mom and I moved out on our own that things got bad.  she struggled just to keep her own self together.  I'm not even sure she knew I was feeling neglected.  I think she was feeling neglected and that was her whole world...  I'll write more about that someday.

      thanks for writing last week.  mom's birthday passed uneventfully for a change.  I wrote about her in my Monday morning diary and that was enough.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
      Drop by The Grieving Room on Monday nights to talk about grief.
