the choices i make

Lately it has seemed that I’m making choices to make others unhappy.

True. Decisions I have made have caused some to be less than thrilled.

I know that.

I had to weigh those choices.

My family’s needs won every time.

The needs of those who are close to me take priority.

It’s not that I won’t bend over backwards for you if you need me.

I’m just fierce in my protectiveness.

Hurt those I love and you hurt me.

Don’t do that.

It’s not nice.

    I personally think you’re such a rock star (having stalked your blog, but rarely commenting) that you don’t owe anyone any explanations about your choices. Dang, if people had to walk ten feet in your shoes they might have a glimmer of understanding why you make the choices you make. And I completely understand the Momma Bear in you protecting those you love…the cuttin’ is ON!!!

    Having known you for 11+ years, ( in every sense of the word but biblically) I have to say there is NO doubt in my mind that YOU will fight to the death for anyone you consider a friend. Your loyalty and dedication to your friends is second only to your total unwaivering support for your family. I have never seen you NOT run to the aid of a suffering family, either in person or via the internet. I have never seen you turn your back on a stranger in need let alone a person. You will never need to cut anyone. Why? because I have a deep dark 58 + day debt in my heart that lead to 11 years of my being humbled in your shadow. Ergo I will commence to the cutting. You provide the list.

    If other people have problems with you doing the best for your family then their opinion isn’t that important anyway. Our families come first and that’s that.

      You’re not kidding. It may be hard, nut I will never make a decision that puts my family last.

    I’ve been that way my entire adult life. So have friends of mine. So I guess I’m a little biased when I say that I think it’s an awesome way to be ;-)

      It’s not for everyone but you can play in my sandbox anyway.

    I like it when you are feisty. I can just see the shank in your hand.


    Love the new layout chicka. Beautiful.
