After much thinking and missing of my parents... I picked up the phone and spoke to them both. Not as easy as it sounds, and no I will not go into it. Let's just say I wanted to tell them I love them and let them know they are in my thoughts & prayers.
I was able to reach my Sis, which always brings me love. I am saddened that we were unable to meet up for Thanksgiving. She & Hubby were going to stop by later but were unable to. Sis was able to update me on some family developments but I stopped her, as I really wasn't ready to discuss too much of these details.. not now. Not today.
My Husband's Sister, Nora, & her handsome guys joined Hubby, the girls & I for a nice Thanksgiving meal. That was good. To have their company as well as breaking bread together. I can make a mean Thanksgiving dinner and all was tasty.

As the evening arrived, Emily's boyfriend had to skidadal to his family dinner. The in-laws also headed out. We visited and grazed with our girls for a while longer.
For the most part... it was pretty good. We are Blessed.
Right before hitting the sack, I opened my Laptop to check mail. That's when I saw it. A message from a ghost. A molester. Someone that I grew up believing I was to trust, that in turn, molested me.
The message was short. He had found me through a mutual person on Facebook. He said something about despite what happened, he had a lot of photographs of me and my family that he would like to pass to me.
Now, as much as I love photos, and he was an amateur photographer that took tons of us, I don't want a thing from this person.
He stirred up some painful memories. Thirty-five years later, and the pain is just as fresh when surfaced.
Just when my plate is so full of peas and they are starting to overflow off my plate, I have tripped, and they are flying off.
I felt so overwhelmed with the problems I had. I really don't think it's fair to get this thrown on top of the lot.
BUT, apparently, God knows I can handle this. He knows what He is giving me & He knows that I can handle it. I just keep telling myself to BELIEVE & to TRUST. I do realize how fortunate I am, and I am very grateful. It's just sometimes I feel... well, dang it like, OKAY! I think Ive had enough... please give me a break. God knows me better than anyone. He knows that I am Stronger than I know.
I do believe. I do trust.
