"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 excited because my little boys have been with their daddy since Tuesday and they are coming home today!

Four days is too long, I'm never doing that again!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Mel

Little Tony received an important lesson about having faith in human nature this morning. I was feeling rather cranky because an item we need for a big community meeting on Sunday night had not arrived and I found out yesterday it had not even been shipped. I was ticked when I found this out and made very little effort to hide that. At the same time I knew there was nothing that could be done so I've been working on alternative plans. Firs thing this morning (8:00 local time) there was a knock on the door as Fed Ex delivered an overnight package. It seems the company was true to their word and was able to get us this rather essential tool for the weekend session. I did expend some energy on anger but at least I didn't vent all over the place and instead focused on damage control. Now I can relax and enjoy the fact that life is once again looking pretty decent.

This has not been one of the better weeks of my life but today i got a hug from an unlikely person and it made me remember some of the good feelings I have been able to experiene over the last couple of months. Maybe things will improve.

Last night my ex and I had a conversation about how we are going to handle Christmas. This is a conversation we have tried to have a couple of other times but has not happened. I was dreading it but she came with an open mind and we even agreed to buy each child a joint present from mom and dad. This may well be the last time that happens and we may get as much meaning from this as the children do. Things are looking up, or at least better then I feared they might be this holiday season.

Spent a peaceful day at home with my son. Did a little cleaning, but mainly played with my boy. We even both took a nice big nap! We are going to get him his bath, then stay up "late" and watch the Muppet Christmas movie together-- I'm even going to make popcorn. My idea of a perfect Saturday.

I just read my email. A note from my father indicates that he has prostrate cancer. He doesn't state so explicitly. He also says that the prognosis is good.

We have only exchanged a few emails since the debacle in October when I left his home when he demanded I have a relationsip with my sister. I have sent him some info on NPD. I don't know if he's read it ... Whether he chooses to become informed or not, is up to him. However, he does understand my feelings and position now.

I will take the opportunity to call him in the morning. He has been tremendous support to me in the last few years. I hope I find the words to help ease his health burden. I may also be able to narrow the gulf that currently exists between us.

I am sending all of the positive energy his way that I can muster

Life, so sorry to hear about your father. I hope this is an opportunity for you to bridge to gulf. Even if things don't go so great today, be glad the prognosis is good-- there is probably time to work on this relationship one small step at a time. (I say probably because two and a half years after having been diagnosed with cancer, I am shocked by how many of my friends and colleagues are gone and I'm still here.)

I am feeling murky and confused. But I think this is a positive. Both individual therapy and marraige counseling seem to be really percolating along, and in prior therapy I learned the murky time means progress. We have signed releases and now our marriage counselor can talk to each of our individual counselors. Also a positive because three heads are better than one. I have apparently been avoiding some stuff in marriage counseling had our marriage counselor confused, my therapist was able to point it out to me since I hadn't even realized I was avoiding it. Good things happening.

Another day, another hug. Its been a rough week but I'm trying to stay focused on the positives. Its not easy but some part of me feels even more desire to live after experiencing something bad and I believe this is a healthy trait.

My eldest son is feeling positive about some things that are happening in his life - I'm feeling hopeful that he may be starting to see his own abilities and worth as a person.
