>Im sooo damm upset right now!   Leave a comment

>I am SOOO fu#%in upset right now. I signed on into FB about 15 minutes ago and Julia sent me a message about her getting beat with a belt by her father(?) Why did he do this?.. Because “I fell asleep on the couch after playing volleyball”
WTF?.. who the hell beats there kid with a belt because they fell asleep on the couch??. I’m am soo upset!!  First of all… she’s 13.. you don’t beat a 13 year old with a belt over your lap!

Second, Julia is such a sweet girl & she doesn’t deserve this crap at all. She’s going thru a really tough time as it is. With the drama at school, the insecurities, losing and gaining friends. It’s alot to handle.

I wish she was a real niece to me. I love her and care for her… alot more than she prob realizes. I just wanna go down and bring her down to Trudys so she can hang with her a few days.. just so she can be happy for a few days… so she can smile just a bit.

>She was upset tonight   Leave a comment

>So my niece Trudy is feeling really bad and missing her friends. Last week she lost 4 friends because of bad mouthing each other. I don’t place the blame entirely on my niece, but it takes two to argue and throw verbal assaults at each other. I mean, she’s a smart girl, but lets her emotions get the best of her sometimes and says things she regrets later.
But by that time the damage is already done and she’s lost a good friendship down the drain. Anyways she was missing Skylar and started to get upset. I avoided the “see what happens when you open your mouth” lecture. She realizes herself that she messed up. I just hope they all look back in a year and say to each other… “what the freak were we thinkin?”  😀 I think they’ll eventually get back as friends. It’s all about maturity and forgiveness.

So me and Kenny spent yesterday down in Snug Harbor for Ariana’s B-day, I can’t believe she’s two years old!! Wow does time fly. She’s growing up really quick. Dick and Lucielle drove down fro Mass to spend time with the family as well. They are such good people and so polite an courteous. They have alot of respect for people. and thats rare to come across anymore. Becky was even up which was nice to see!

Dick, Luceille, and Bri.. for some reason Bri looked lost here!!

Becky, Trudy and Toni

>Why apologize?   Leave a comment

>Sometimes we say things that we regret. As my dad always said we forget to “engage the brain before placing the mouth in gear”. Someone hurts us, and we get defensive instantly. We clamp up, and then say things we wouldn’t dare say if we were hugging them. I’ve done it myself. Opened my mouth and crap would come out and hurt the very person I love.
But thats were apologies come into play. Saying “I’m sorry” means saying I still love you and I messed up. It takes a strong person to walk away and to forget a friendship. But it takes a much more stronger person to apologize, and to mend it. If we never apologized, and never meant it.. we wouldn’t have very many friends left.

>What do we really need in life?   Leave a comment

>We all need to be loved.. to be held and appreciated. To be noticed and thought of. It’s a need for humans that no animal has. It’s said that humans have 5 basic needs in order to survive. Water, food, shelter, warmth, and love. Some may say that you don’t even need love. That you can survive without it and keep on living a normal life.

Well.. it’s been proven that depression is caused by a lack of love. Nobody likes the loneliness. People can get so depressed and sink so low that they feel unwanted, worthless and then they decide it’s not even worth living. That since nobody cares, it’s easier to end it so they don’t feel the pain anymore. They try to end their lives to end the pain. Then there are the ones that hurt so bad, that they can literally be sent to the hospital. “Broken Heart Syndrome” is a real issue surprisingly.

>I know it’s rough sometimes   Leave a comment

>Can’t sleep. Got some friends on my mind. I mean I should be thinking bout my job, getting my car tuned up and ready for another inspection, or worrying about Conner betting better. But instead I got a kiddo on my mind. I was bored and started editing some pics as I always do, and it occurred to me that she rarely smiles
 😦   Out of the dozens of pictures I’ve seen of her I can probably count on one hand how many pics she’s smiled in.

I dunno…. It’s probably dumb because they’re not my kids, but I guess thats why I worry bout them. They got alot of crap on their plate already, and then there’s the relationships, school, problems at home…etc. I can only imagine how it hurts sometimes, because adults got thru the same thing. All I want to do is just give her a hug… that’s all.. nothing more… nothing less. Just to let her know that I’m here for her. Anyways, gonna try to head down Thursday night and bring Trudy up to see Julia. Maybe go out Friday for ice cream or pizza or something 😀
