How's the world treating you two darlin's this morning?
I've thought about both of you and after talking with Jen about the Coping Mag project, I was inspired to send them another story. (Jen, I wrote this one in only 1327 words, lol)
In a way, the both of you intertwine for this post and I thought the 2nd story I sent Coping Mag would be of benefit to you both. This morning on the way into work, I wanted to share it with Jen...and then Chels, I thought of how you and Steve might really get something out of this story.
It's also for everyone who would like to read it...
It's yesterday's news for the old-timers here, but for the new folks it will be very fresh. And I think that if nobody but just you two get anything out of it, it was well worth running it again.
Chels: I'd like for you to find time to read this to Steve, if he is amiable:) Our boy needs a little Big Billy right about now:)
And Jen: Just wanted you to be able to read the other story I submitted to Coping...me & you can publish here, LOL!
I will tell you that this is a tough story...but you've already read so many of my tough stories that I know you'll make it through...only 3 pages, LOL!
It was written when I was near the end of my last fight campaign...I was in a bad place then...beaten and nearly defeated with my 3rd go round...I was feeling so bad that I was literally looking for permission from the group for me to stop fighting...I was at the end.
The story will tell you the rest....
The point I'm trying to make is simply...I know where you are right now...I know where your husbands are at right now...and you ask our friend Cyn, that to some degree, I know right where the caregiver is too:)
I know how hard it is...I know when it seems impossible...I know when you can't take another second....I know when you want to run...and I know when you want to hide...and I know when you want to fight.
After reading this...you & hubbies will get your next wind...and that's why I wanted to talk to you today...I've told you over and over, it's for folks like you that I do try and stay here.
You've never met Big Billy...let me give you his tagline:)
He $hits Lightning - And He Craps Thunder
And if you look at him real closely - you'll see me:)
Love U Gals!
Below is the story I sent to Coping Magazine...
