Tears falling down .....

This entry is in response to a comment that was added to yesterday's entry ......

This entry is dedicated to "linnpooh" .... here is what she had to say ....

I thought my weight loss was the highlight of my day, but I was thrilled when I read your entry. I'm so happy that you worked things out with Meggan...I prayed very hard that things would go in a positive direction for you. I'm so proud of the way you handled this situation...you knew this was something you needed to fix, you thought it out and followed through! You deserve to be happy like this...and it has absolutely the best moment of my day to see tht you were. What can I say...I kinda feel like you're my adopted daughter! :)
Wow, about your visit from Caroline! I knew you didn't have anything to worry about and that she would be very happy with the job you have done, why wouldn't she be? I'm so impressed by your work ethic and responsibility, not just everyone is blessed with those qualities and I'm very sure they will take you very far. We own a store and my husband is always looking for people like you...they are very hard to find. You are awesome and don't you forget it!
It is also great news about your Kiosk getting a remodel & upgrade. I could feel your excitement all the way here in Michigan! Isn't it the best feeling when something we have wanted finally starts to materialize? I have no doubt that you will make it the best Kiosk in the mall and the best Piercing Pagoda that the company has!
I think your thoughts about your employees at the store are 100% right . Your sense of how things should go at a place of business is very intuitive. I'm so proud of the maturity and assertiveness that you show as a manager, you are doing things right, so don't back down.
Well, this day was a perfect start to your weekend, huh? I hope the rest of it keeps unfolding is a positive nature. Don't let anyone make you feel "less than" honey, okay? If they try, you tune them out and rise above it, because you are! Remember you have me in your corner and I'm routing for you. I'm always just an e-mail away......

When I read this, this morning I instantly started crying. Reading this ensured me that I would have a great day today,knowing that I'm actually wanted in someone's life AND family!

She felt the happiness in me from my day ... and I DIFFENTLY felt the happiness in her yesterday ... heck  cried (of joy) when I read she lossed weight!

It hurts knowing that  NONE of your family wants you to be a part of you. They wish you would just dissappear .... then when you have somehting they want, they want to act like you 2 have been close all your life.  They are two-faced and Indian givers .... but I've grown to accept it due to having to deal with it all my life. My mom talks BAD about me all the time to my neighbor, which used to be my friend, and my mom doesn't think I hear her. I stopped talking to my neighbor because she was telling my mom everything, even things I didn't do, and she would make them out to be bad! She turned my mom even MORE against me!

 

 

But enough of the sadness, I could say all kinds of things about my family life, but I'll stop it there ....


Thanks Linda for the comment, it REALLY brightened my day! Making me feel like I was actually wanted and worth something!

 

Have a great day everyone and I hope everyone has good relationships with their family members!

I'm so glad you found such acceptance here in JLand...I have made such wonderful friends here too and I find they mean more to me than my friends in my everyday life...

Theresa....what a nice thing to say about me, what a sweetheart you are and also for being so happy for my weight loss...that means a lot to me!!

I do care about you and want you around...and I want you to remember it every single day, when other's painful remarks are being hurled your way. It hurts me beyond measure that your Mother chooses to make you feel this way, and all I can say is that she will be sorry and regret it someday. I don't know if it will be in this lifetime, but I know one thing for certain.....she WILL have to stand before God and answer for her behavior. I know, however, through your pain & tears...you love her very much and want a relationship with her, I can always read it between the lines you write. Those are very natural & normal feelings, by the way, we never stop wanting our Mom or wanting to please her. I'm 47 years old and I still like it when my Mom is proud of me. So it's okay to say that out loud to me...it may actually make you feel better.

Your feelings don't mean that you have to accept her negative words and actions against you though. You are worth something....you are worth everything! You are going to make something out of your life....I have no doubts! Keep believing in yourself and pushing forward past the barriers she sets up for you. I have faith in you, Theresa,  and know you can do it. Remember....I'm here for you and just an e-mail away.
Pooh Hugs,
Linda~
