I started this blog because I wanted to separate my "bitchin" from my storytelling....sometimes I have succeeded other times....uh not so much.
This time my post is for a dear friend. She would hate it if I said who she is so we will skip that part and move on to why I am posting about her situation.
1. She is a good hearted, giving, funny, smart, talented lady
2. She has adorable grandchildren and loves them dearly
3. Her life, like so many of us has been not exactly what you would call perfect, but blessed at any rate
4. She has helped her children out of sticky situations, including lending them money, helping them purchase large item tickets for which they could not qualify and being there, supporting them
Okay that's the background of my friend. Now this is why I am asking you to send the most loving, concentrated thoughts you possibly can to her, prayers, lighting candles, whatever it is that you do, do it.
One of her children has turned on her. The one, of course, that she has helped the most. This child has left my friend holding the bag on fines (for driving and other infringements of the law) in excess of $12,000.00 dollars. This is because only my friends name is on the car registration. Has left her with credit card debt, this child person has gone out of the way to malign and trash my friend to any and all that would listen, be they friends, family, facebook contacts, blogging folks. The ugliest and meanest thing of all is that...this child has told the grandchildren that they may not ever see my friend again. One of the grandchildren told my friend this in a phone call. Her heart is breaking.
Needless to say you and I are not going to be able to solve this hellacious problem, nor do any of us have the answer to this awful dilemna. We can all hope that the situation defuses but.....how do you go back to normality with someone who would stoop to this level of deceit, contempt and abuse both to my friend and to her granchildren. These kids were the stars in her heaven.
Please lovelies, you have been so very good to me and compared to this situation....I have nothing ever to complain about.....give my friend all the good juju you have. I would be having a hell of a time just raising my head off of the pillow after this betrayal. She is holding on but just by the ends of her fingers.
Thanks so much for listening and being the good people you are.
