new chances
« on: September 16, 2014, 11:14:36 AM »
A long time ago in a far off universe, I had an extremely difficult decision to make.  I was in love with 2 guys.  I won't say I made the wrong choice as either one would have been difficult.

He harbored bad feeling towards us through the years and refused to communicate or interact with us.  I secretly carried that youthful torch for him and think of him often.  Through his sister, I've kept tabs on him and always wondered about the "what ifs".

I tried connecting with him through FB a few years ago and he totally ignored me.  He has been in a long term relationship that recently ended pretty badly.  A couple of days ago I rec'd a friend request from him.  My heart literally fluttered upon seeing that.  When I came home last night, he had messaged me.

We chatted until 2:00 am expressing emotions that I didn't feel I was capable of any longer.  He shared how he came across some photos of us when he was packing up his house.  Then the huge shocker; he never stopped loving and missing me.  Which of course is true for me also.

It was amasing that within short order, we were chatting like we had never been apart.  I'm so over excited that we're getting together this week.

I just needed some place to express my happiness today. ;)

I didn't want to start a new thread about another FB incident a little while ago.  I rec'd a nasty message from a cousin who is upset that I've not posted about our grandmother.

I'm not after condolences because I'm not a hypocrit.  She passed away in the middle of the night.  I know for a fact that this same cousin never bothered with her and actually always said nasty things about her.

I tried to have a relationship with her but it was futile.  She was a selfish, bitter, prejudiced bigot whom I did not like in the least.  The last time Bill and I visited her, she proceded to tell other family members that we tried to convince her to sell her home and move in with us.  WTF, never happened and she'd have been lucky if I'd have chosen a nursing home for her.
