Girls Write Out
Saturday, December 22, 2012
James Scott Bell shared something one of his blogmates hinted at on their blog--that the world hasn't ended yet. It's apparently supposed to happen today by midnight, according to some. So maybe we're jumping the gun a little. I could wake up in heaven in an hour with mud on my face, though. I can't foretell the future. So shoot me. NO! Don't take me seriously!

Man, it's getting a little freaky here lately, to the point that I'm not sure what to blog. What if I say something offhand and some poor soul takes it seriously and reacts?

So anywho, where would you be if the world ended today? Where would you want to be? I think I would want to be doing what I'm doing right now--working on rewrites, helping Mel whip the new clinic into shape, getting back into church after so many weeks of missing with illness--this has NOT been a good year for that. Oh, and working on information for my audit with the IRS. Not that I feel I'm doing well, just that I know I'm not breaking any laws, but if they want to decide on a new law all of a sudden, I can't do anything about that. Some person who lives in a world of numbers instead of humans holds my financial fate in her hands. Or not. We'll see. Oh, the uncertainty of it all. I don't know who is trustworthy in the IRS, but if I have a trustworthy agent with these people, then I should do well. I've always been as honest as I can be. If it doesn't work out, don't blame me. You'll know I tried my hardest to make the numbers crunch the way the auditor wanted them to crunch. But personality comes into play quite often these days. It's so easy to make up our own rules, or twist the words of the rules we already have.

I'll let you know how it goes once the decisions are made. And now... I get to see my stepsons, their wives, a step-grandson, his grandmother, and what could be better than that? Let's forget the IRS and remember the joys at hand. Nothing is more important.

Oh, it'll be a wonderful visit, Jel. Any time I see those boys, it never fails to be good. I'm just so grateful to their mother for allowing me to have the occasional glimpse into their lives when they come to town. They were seven and three when they first entered my life. That picture is of the youngest a couple of years ago. How precious is life.

What a beautiful family! You are so fortunate, now that I'm divorced I no longer see my little step grandsons, I haven't been allowed to see them for over a year. It's very hard, I love them very much. Now, I'm many states away but enjoy being close to my two grand girls.

I'm is sorry you have to go through an audit! You are in my prayers, the government seems to want more than they are legally allowed. I have a friend who is losing their family business and several government agencies want a piece.

I'm also praying you are completey healed. I know so many who have been sick, but I hope you are able to get back to church and feel well again.

Have a blessed Christmas!

Thank you, Cheri. I'm so sorry you can't see you step-grands. I have been aware for many years that the mother of my stepsons is a gracious, wonderful woman. I'll never let her forget how much I appreciate her.

I'm still healing, spiritually and physically. The loss of a mother kills something inside you, and you never quite get it back. I know, however, where she is, and I know I'll join her someday.

I feel the same way, Ane. I want to be doing what I'm called to do.
