come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

Merry Christmas: Funnies

For an absolute laugh you have to go to Lulubelle's blog post titled:

I am laughing right out loud
and it feels so good,
it might even wake up my family
and we will begin Christmas Day.

Love, hugs, and Merry Christmas to you all.

my comment to lulubelle:
I just read the title of your post
and I am laughing right out loud

....i hope the kids don't wake up

...tonight as I layed by my son as he fell asleep,
I was singing to him

...he asked me if we could just listen to his ipod:

House of Pooh Corner....

such a kind way of saying:

Mom, please stop singing.

so funny.
I am going to blog this, and link to you...can't help myself!

Now, for my funnies from my family blog:


Christmas Eve Day:

Elijah: Mom, since I can't find my
Christmas stocking this year
I'll just use this Winnie the Pooh one.

[first, i didn't know his was missing :( ,
second, sadly, and worse,

i didn't know he was longing for it...]

Me: We will go right up to the
attic and find it in the
extra Christmas decorations.

[third, i banned half the decorations this year, and my kids caught me boxing up
the ones we had put out a week ago. they called me GRINCH, and yes, I have been the grinch this year. I felt all green, with a heart too small, as I SHOVED those decorations BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM.]

Elijah: (answering my solution to go find the sock),
No, that's not good.
I don't think we should
spend our time working on Christmas Eve.

[You would think it was Sunday, the way he said it.]
....him thinking....he continues:

. wasn't a question.
It was a statement of pure disgust.

He is so hilarious. He stayed in his PJ's all day,
decided he would go to bed at 630 to have
Christmas come earlier!!!!! ☺

Christmas Eve Day "FUNNIES", take two:

The kids have been getting Santa Helper
gifts for the 12 days of Christmas.
Today was their 11th gift.
As they brought it in the house
they were all talking about how
COLD the package feels.

ME: There is no place as cold as the North Pole.

..well, except maybe my grinch, I didn't say thatjust thought it!

Elijah (again, and speaking very professor like): Except for Antarctica, it's pretty certain that it is colder there,in fact,scientifically it's probabilitymuch more colder.

BLOG THAT! (he, he, i did, and i got to it before Cece!)

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hey, Hope MILE 191...I FOUND you. Finally! Here in this closet. Been looking all over the house, you were so quiet, dear.

You say you want me to go away and shut the door? But it will be dark. I guess God can find you in the dark as well as anywhere.

Seriously now: My wife bought me a really big cross to hang off my gold neck chain. First person who saw it, said, "Hey, you must want to make sure God can find you, at the "last trumpet"...

Merry Christmas Mile. My son loves winnie the pooh and thomas and friends.

I really enjoy your posts. Wish you lived around the corner! Imagine the talks we'd have :)

who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

this is my story.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, well, you will understand as you read along.
mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.
if you want to share with me, please do.
i will post bits of my pain as i can, and leave it here.
i once thought that i would publish...i haven't had the courage.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.

Quotes from Suvivors United - Standing Strong Together Against Abuse

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face.
Eleanor Roosevelt

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Helen Keller

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.
Booker T. Washington

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard, ' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'
Sydney Harris

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
Richard L. Evans

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
Joshua J. Marine

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
