Kind of a sad day...saw the dark side of family today. I have had so much support and help from my neighbors, who are like family. Plus my son and DIL.
Today Jim's youngest brother showed up . Let's just say he hit the yard like it was Walmart Take It Free day . Then was upset that I had already sold some items he wanted?? What!
No expression of sympathy, no how are you or anything I can do..just prowling and taking.
I fear I may anger some family but this will NOT happen again.
The items taken are not the issue. The attitude they were taken with was inexcusable.
To say I was stunned would be an understatement. Only after seeing this happen for a
while did my brain kick in and say...enough!! This brother has been here like 3 times in all
the years we have been together..and is suffering the loss of his big bro so much that he wants to take anything that belonged to him...WHAT??
I am now not so much angry as I am disappointed . I always have such high hopes for people and the things they are capable of. All too often they disappoint me..but today was more than disappointment . I do not know the words to describe it, English fails me.
I refuse to become bitter or angry. I will not allow them the space in my heart and mind for that to grow. I also will not allow any further "shopping" at our place. Done!
Forgive me for venting..I just had to get it out before it took root.
Tomorrow will be a better day, I have already decided that!
Good nite folks ...may your rest be peaceful and your dreams filled with joy!
PS'..the chicken showed up..it was Goldie 2...Goldie 1 was in the hen house..where 2 was I will never know..but she showed up that is the important thing!
