“God doesn't give you the people you want, He gives you the people you NEED - To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be.”I don’t know if it’s God who gave me these people, but whatever/whomever it is has been generous! Last weekend we watch “Resident Evil – The Extinction” and couldn’t help to think that I was just like the main character; I’m surrounded by them, idiots, instead of zombies! It’s scary at times when I stop and think about it. Why? The most dangerous ones are the ones closest to me.
As you know the Holidays bring out the “best” in people. This year, for the first time I feel strange when thinking about Christmas. It will be my mother’s first Christmas alone and it will be our first Christmas with the new woman in the FIL’s life. My mother I can handle, but the other one… FIL has been dating her since the beginning of the year, and we haven’t met her yet. Imagine my surprise when Hubby asked if we had any plans for the 25th (he only asked because I’m “the social coordinator” as he calls me), because we were invited for dinner with her son and wife. My first reaction was “Hell no!” I’m asking you, dear blends, am I wrong here in not wanting to be introduced to this woman (who has quite a hold on the
We saw him briefly on Saturday, at his house, which is under complete renovation and anything that had MIL’s touch has been sold, given away or destroyed. I felt sad looking around the house. I can only imagine how Hubby felt even if guys are different and don’t attach the same importance to these things, but still… It is/was his parents’ house; where he lived for a good 15+ years. Granted the house needed a good cleaning, paint job, etc. but maybe not all at once and so drastically. With me not wanting to partake in the Christmas dinner (and I’m using my mother as an excuse to bail, since I don’t want her to be alone on Christmas day) Hubby feels stuck in the middle. Just like when his mom was around and making our lives miserable. Not good!
Thinking about the quote, I can’t help but think I must be needing some really special help, because I tell you, idiots are all around me! Argh! What to do, what to do??
BUT, there are also some really special people in my life. A few weeks back, Periwinkle had a little "give away" and I won! Yeah me!
Today I received a little package with my prize in it.
Look what I've got! Ain't it puuuurdy?
A beautiful pendant! I just love the way it sparkles.
Thank you so much Periwinkle, you're too much, and that pendant is beautiful! I luuuuuuvv it! Thank you, thank you!!
If you haven't yet, check out her Etsy shop, she has really beautiful items, you'll see. And they're affordable, even for this Canadian. Hee.
I guess it's not all bad, but I still feel there are more idiots than nice people, except around here, of course!
