"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

I am thankful for the wonderful support from the terrific people here.

I've been having a hard time sleeping lately. Everytime I close my eyes, I see my daughter's face. She will be moving on to her first duty station any day now. I so hope she isn't going to Iraq.

The positive side of this ... it seems to me that one of the reasons that she has become a focus is because other major issues in my life are being resolved ... A bit of a double edged sword.

It's a sunny day after storm after storm has wrecked havoc in this area. I think I'll get out into it and see if I can salve this wound.

Thinking of all of you ...
Life

I had a chance today to go for a walk and just set aside all the problems of life and think about good things. Its was unusually nice here and I enjoyed just being aware that I was alive and appreciating life in all its forms.

Hi All!

Another great days with my boys. We went and watched grandpa sing in church and then went over to my friends house to hang out. She has a six year old autistic boy and (I hate to say this) but it really makes me grateful for my happy, healthy little ones. She also has a two year old daughter who is a firecracker with a lot of attitude. I always think I'm busy until I hang out at her house for a while!

The boys' dad phoned again this morning to talk to them. That is every day since we had our big fight. As I said earlier, I am hoping it is not the hope of getting a car out of me that is doing this, but a genuine desire to make a less stressful situation for the boys. Only time will tell.

WAY TO GO FRIENDLY!!

Boo hiss work tomorrow.

Mel

I am thankful to be home. In the airport during my layover, I wrote a letter to my husband. I don't intend to send it; it's mainly for myself. It was good to clarify in words what I feel like has happened in this marriage, and to acknowledge the many areas where I am still confused. I think this was a good step in trying to heal

Its really hard for me to do this meditation stuff because I have the ADD thing going on, but I did it for awhile yesterday and it felt good. I'm going to try and do it more often.

Congratualtions on a fantastic effort, Friendly.

Riches, my ADD son was in a class when he was 10 years old and the teacher tried to teach some basic meditation. He put on some quiet music and told the class to focus on something or other and empty their minds of all thoughts. All was quiet. Then my son started to furiously bang the side of his head with his hand. Asked what he was doing, he replied "Getting rid of the thoughts" ....

I got lots of work done today on my reply to my ex's claims and am feeling reasonably prepared for seeing my solicitor tomorrow.

Congratulations, Friendly!

I came to work this morning and found a choclotate kiss on my desk from a secret admirer. Now I have to guess who in the office is watching me. I feel like a kid again. :biggrin:

Too funny Linda ... grin

Chocolate kisses, Weissfamily, how fun!!!

Friendly ... your strength is awsome.

I feel great right now. i just got home from seeing my therapist. I haven't seen her in over a month. It felt really good to talk to her about all the neat and not so neat stuff that has happened during that time. She's a terrific lady. When I think of her, I am reminded of the phrase, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." (It goes something like that anyway ...)

Cheers!

My solicitor was confident that I would be awarded more than my ex has offered if the settlement went to Court so that has to be a positive!!
