  •  It took me a very long time to care about that (11+ / 0-)

    little girl.

    What she knew scared the hell out of me.

    Now I know, she's the better part of who I am.

    Thank you so much for your understanding words.
    Much love and peace to you.

    •  Oh my, (10+ / 0-)

      It took me a very long time to care about that little girl. Now I know, she's the better part of who I am.

      I'm so glad you overcame that. The little girl that lives inside all women should be cherished. If they were ever hurt, they should be healed.

      My son is going to get rich and famous and send me to Disneyworld to live one day. That's what he said. LOL! He can't believe how much of a fool I am for Disneyworld. He went and wasn't a fraction as happy as I was for him because I never got to go myself or even take him. I gladly gave up that $2,000 so my son could...not just march with his band in the Citrus Bowl parade, but to get a picture of Mickey or the big castle that Tinkerbell flies around. He had specific instructions to do that. :-D

      Sunday night Disney movies on TV was an escape from worrying about drunk and fighting parents. He doesn't know that, he just thinks I'm hilarious and he likes to see the adult melt away from my face. He showed me all the video he shot and my heart soared and my eyes filled with tears and I couldn't help it. I feel bad for anybody who can't go back to that place and heal the hurt child they used to be. "When you wish..." is my cue to drop everything and be happy. I hope it never changes.
