Okay I did it again...open mouth insert entire leg
You know not a week goes by that I don't just step in a big old pile of it.
I just love my grandchildren and I can't stand to see them being hurt. If it was accidental or without malice, I would turn my head and walk away but when I see, know it is being done on purpose, I feel, taste and ache because it's true....I can't walk away and I don't.
Intellectually, I know that I should butt out but my heart overrides my head and my mouth speeds up and passes them all on the backstretch.
My mother bearness is so strong and unruly. And knowing that both of my grands are a little damaged emotionally right now doesn't make it easier to ignore when "mean people" hurt them. So I said something about it to the perps and life will be a little more difficult to traverse for awhile but I stepped in a big old pile of it and now I must pause to clean my shoes and mind and move on.
I have to add that I am sending nothing but healing thoughts to those "mean girls" who made their decisions and hope that time will teach them the lessons they are due. I also am waiting for the mouth suture kit I have asked Santa Claus for as my gift at Christmas. I also asked for the industrial ear plugs and self lobotomy kit but economics being what they are I don't expect that I'll get the whole list cuz ya know damn well I haven't been good enough this year.
