Hello again honeys
I hope everyone's well and having a fabulous start to the week. Hubby and I both booked time off work and we're spending this week working on a marathon de-clutter of two rooms. Yesterday was a good start, and I'm hoping that we can carry on and get through a few more boxes today.
Hubby is out walking Jade, or maybe it's Hubby being walked by Jade :) So I thought I'd take advantage of the short break and work on the next post of the Blogtember Challenge. So honeys, day 9 of the lovely Bailey Jean's blogging challenge....
Put that book down for a minute, there's a dear. We've always loved reading, haven't we? For as long as I can remember our constant companion was a book of some sort. Do you remember how excited we were to be given our very own library card at the age of nine? How we'd ride our bicycle to the local library with our best friend Joan every Saturday morning to exchange our books for lovely new (to us) ones.
I wanted to tell you a few things, oh I know you probably won't listen, we don't listen nearly enough dear one. Not where you are now in our life's journey at least. There are so many things I wish I could tell you, to spare you (us) so much heartache and pain, but you wouldn't listen even if I did. You're too trusting Rosie, not something we ever get over I'm afraid.
The world doesn't play fair, just because you do. Some of the people you trust more than anyone else will eventually hurt you and betray your trust I'm afraid. Some people you (we) called friends are very much not I'm sorry to say. You'll see it of course but will keep on making excuses for their terrible behaviour and poor treatment of you (us) because you refuse to see any badness in people. Not even when they make you cry.
If I could give you any advice it would be to try to be mindful of what you tolerate and maybe to try to be more adventurous. You'll be offered so many opportunities and you'll either be too afraid to take them or you'll think yourself unworthy of them. Live a little more and read a little less, yes I know books are our life's blood but I did say only a little less :)
A little under two years from now you'll meet a boy outside a cinema. He'll be soft spoken, very well mannered, a fellow sci fi fan and have the bluest eyes you've ever seen. You'll know the minute you meet him that you have so much in common, you'll absolutely know that you're meant to be friends, but what you won't know, at that moment anyway, is that he's going to be the most important person in your life for, well, forever. He's a keeper this boy with the beautiful blue eyes, and keep him you (we) will. He'll be your husband, your very best friend and your companion through all of the ups and downs of life's rocky highway. He's our greatest blessing Rosie, you'll see.
Oh, before I go, when you're 29 you decide to go to college, it'll be a blast, best time ever and you'll meet a beautiful girl called Miriam, you guys are going to be such friends! In fact she's going to be your best friend long after college is over. She's another blessing in this life Rosie. You'll see, not all angels have wings you see, some just arrive in our lives at exactly the right time and, more importantly, they stick around through the bad times and not just the good. You (we) are blessed with lots of lovely people in our life, remember what Gramma said and say thank you every day for your blessings, I (we) still do, every morning. Stay strong during the bad times, they pass I promise and you have so many books still to read...
Till next time dear ones, love and hugs always xx
