One of my friends had this as her Facebook status and it just got me. I am so glad Ralph deserves me.
I have today at work and then I have four days holiday. I was going to stay with my eldest daughter and her family, but I am not now. She cancelled a couple of weeks ago with a very hurtful note, not the best of times for her to throw me a hissy fit. She does this every two or three years, lashing out with hurtful words. I try to rationalise it and after the initital hurt let it go. This time it has been different and I cannot leave her words on the paper. They have burrowed deep into my heart and mind and they hurt like mad. I keep referring back to Marilyn's quote, to try to ease the pain. When Jen is here she is great, but she is a serviceman's wife and lives four hours away. She has issues as they say, when these isssues rear their ugly head, she takes it out on me. So I am hanging on to the quote as it says it all.
"I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can't handle me at my worst,
then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
