For I am blessed?

I've often wondered what I have done to deserve much of the sh*t I've faced over the years, I think until I am tired thinking - yet still I can not think of any reason as to why I have been blessed* in such a way.

Take my first husband Mr H..... I was 14 years old and as innocent as you like when I met him. I did everything a good, respectful girl should have done. I became a nurse, paid my taxes and yet still I was blessed* with that Bast*rd.

Then there's Cruella, I must have done something really terrible to have her in my life? Nope, I cared for her babies when she couldn't be bothered to, I supported her ex-husband who she had broken, I supported her financially and cleared her debts so she could sit on her fat arse whilst I looked after her boys. As to why I should have been blessed* with this person remains a mystery to me!

Finally there are the in-laws, or as I like to say - The Outlaws! Lordy, lordy me! What the fuck did I do to deserve them? I've cooked, cleaned, decorated and practically run myself ragged for them. I've supported their eldest son to become the fantastic father, husband and individual he always should have been. I've nurtured their grandsons and forgive me for boasting, but done a pretty fine job! I've given them two gorgeous grand daughters and never asked for anything in return. Do I have the right to be angry when they fail to turn up for Mr M's leaving celebration? Do I have the right to feel cheated when they buy Woody a birthday gift and show up 3 days early to give it to him, then bring Dora's along 2 weeks late - unwrapped? Should I be truly pee'ved when they can not find it in themselves to offer me support in any way shape or form whilst Mr M is away, yet they demand that he utilises his 30 minutes a week telephone contact on them?

You see I'm not one to boast or gloat. I'm not one to relish in my own glory. But forgive me on this occasion if I indulge myself - just a little - a rub your nose in telling you how I am Blessed*

Phone call to them? Phone call to you and your kids. To his boys if the crazy woman will let him.

Kids and spouses first. ;)

You deserve it.

Thoughts and prayers will be with you! Your hubby is a hero

I just keep saying- what goes around comes around. You are earning your place in heaven sister!

You know Mr. M will do right by you- he adores you! (And rightfully so!)

I found your blog some time ago and have been following it! Couldnt help but post on the 'outlaws'. I am one of those and wish I could teach yours a thing or two!!!!! My son is in the US Army stationed in Afghanistan. I LOVE to hear his voice and also online chat with him. However, that being said, his wife and children are #1. I send him phone cards to make sure he can talk to THEM!!!!!! As long as he knows his little family is doing well, he can relax and do the job he was sent there for! She can and does pass on any news to me...for that I am grateful! Good luck to your husband and of course to you.


ps...didnt mean to write a book!

Who's reading?
