My Apologies

I was just looking at the Recent Visitors section on my Blog, saw several names I like and respect, and I feel I have let you down because I haven't had a new post all week. I'm very sorry for that, and ask your forgiveness,

This has been a tough week for me, emotionally. A friend is going through hell in her divorce, the treatment my cousin is on is making her sick in an effort to heal her, and I made a very costly decision in regards to my work. What else? My cat has been acting strangely, so I took her to the vet--she has cancer; one of my favorite neices is pregnant; and my dad broke his ankle showing a grandson how to skateboard. Oh--and if those weren't enough to deal with, my complexion is going through a time warp, and I have more acne now than I had my entire high school career. What's up with that?

So I've had maybe 18 hours sleep all week combined, I'm grouchy and cranky, and worried about those I love. It's not pretty. I'd host a pity party, complete with refreshments, but then the pants that are just snug wouldn't fit at all, and I'd start whining about that.

I'm sorry this is such a negative post, but this is how I'm feeling today. Hopefully tomorrow will be much better!

And you feel the need to apologise? Actually I feel bad not being there for you!

Julz... I see nothing for you to apologize for here.

You just take care of the things that you can take of... pray for the things that need praying for... hold the ones that need holding... and love all of them.

I will keep you in my thoughts also... and say a prayer for you too. Get some sleep when you can... and don't worry about the blog... it'll still be here, and so will your friends when you can get here.

Take care of yourself, hug, unlisted

Thanks guys for the electronic hugs and emotional support. It's Friday night--well, now it's technically early Saturday morning--and I did make it thru the week.

Victoria isn't as sick as she was, but her beautiful, long chestnut colored hair is beginning to fall out. Several of us cousins are talking about shaving our heads as a show of support, and donating our hair to that place that makes wigs for people like V. No harsh commitments just yet.

As beautiful as you are, it could only enhance your beauty further

good morning julie. sorry to hear your feeling the blues and stressed. stresss will bring on the dreaded acne. you meditate or have time? make some if you need to. close your eyes, clear your mind, breathe deep slowly in through the nose and slowly out the mouth. let me now send you some good vibes....vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. oops, wrong vibes. hope that did not put too much of a smile on your face. here you go........ oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. much better.

it's ok to vent and talking to strangers can be quite liberating. but talking to a trusting signifigant other, if we have one in our lives, will be just as great.

if this helps any, try to be proactive. worry is one of those things that drives us nutty and our minds just spin. not much you can do about dad but check in, continue to care for your cat and your cousin. hope that helps. is there someone to care for you and give you hug and a shoulder? shaka, de

Juliet....I'm so sorry to hear what a rough week you've had. I would love to know more about Victoria....she must be a very special person to have such support from you and her other loved ones that you would consider shaving your heads too. I too am going through similar treatments.....fortunately they haven't affected my hair. And just when I thought they were over.....I have a fear of cancer of the uterus. But we are strong when we have people like you behind us. Someone I love dearly said....and I hope I can say this right.......

"I'll stand behind you cheering you on when you're strong. Beside you holding your hand when you need me to. And in front of you for protection when it comes at you too strong."

What more could we need? Pray for the ones you love who are struggling Juliet....and know that I'm praying for you to. I'm hear if you just need to vent to someone. You sound alot like me in some ways.....a Warrior. But remember that sometimes the warrior is a child....and you need to let others protect you too. And boy do I need to remember this myself.

Bless you Angel for your concern. I told a bit of Victoria's story in my post called Who Said Life Was Fair. She was one of the cousins I knew best growing up because our families always seemed to end up near each other. She's a fighter , and if anyone can defeat this enemy, she;ll do it! Thank you for the prayers--can never have too many of them.
