Today I want to write something a little different. It is about 2 people whom I love and care about very much. Those people are my youngest brother Paul, and my very dear friend Nancy. The two of them are truely awesome people, and have so much love to give. First I will tell you about Nancy. She is like a twin to me. We share the same likes and dislikes. She loves family, friends, music, Jland, Pogo, and children as I do. She and I met on line about 10 years in a gameroom in pogo called the saloon. We became great friends. We share pictures with each other, talk on the phone, write, email, chat on im and in a game room. She is the most sweetest, kind, loving person you would ever want to meet. I am very blessed to have her as my friend, my sissy as we call each other. Nancy has a journal here in Jland also. Stop by and visit her journal (desires) on my side bar. She talks about her family and of course my little brother, lol.
As for my brother Paul, as some of you know he is incarcerated in the virginia prison system. He is married (hate his wife, grrrrr) to a woman who is 15 years older than he is. She is a loser let me tell you. She never showed him any love, respect, or kindness. She was always grouchy, ignorant, would drink and argue with him. One night she threw his dinner on his lap right after she took it out of the oven. Hot cheeries jubilee was the dessert and Paul said it was painful. Paul came home one night after work and found his wife gone. It literally destroyed him. He came to my house a few times and would cry. His heart was broken. On the day of their wedding anniversary when she had left, Paul was at home making a wonderful dinner of EggPlant Parm and Spaghetti, hoping she would walk in the door and come back into his life. He never got to share that dinner with her. She never came back. My niece and her boyfriend showed up instead. They got to drinking, and drinking, Paul feeling so depressed trying to drown out the sadness in his life with alcohol. Soon they had run out of their alcohol, and having no money between 3 of them and wanting more to drink, they came up with the idea of stealing. The three of them were arrested for attempted armed robbery. Being the man my brother is, he took the blame for almost all of it, and including telling the police his niece had no part in it, she was asleep in the truck and knew nothing of what they were doing. He couldn't let her ruin her life by having such a charge on her record. He loved his niece and wanted her to be able to live her life freely. Paul was given 6 years in prison. My heart dropped into my stomach when I heard the judge say guilty and 6 years. The boyfriend of my niece got 3 years for driving the truck. Paul has told me numerous times, he is an idiot and so stupid for doing what he did. And he is so sorry for all the heartache he has caused me. He knows I worry about him constantly. I have a very close bond with him. When our mother died, he was just a baby and I raised him. he called me Mommy til he was 7 years old. He knows I worry, and am upset for what he did 5 years ago. Last year Paul decided he was gonna forget about the wife who broke his heart and move on. he will be divorcing her as soon as he gets out of prison and moving on with his life. he asked me if I knew anyone who would be willing to write him, be a penpal to him. That he wanted to write to someone and tell them things he cannot tell me or didn't feel comfortable telling me. I asked my dear friend Nancy if she would be up to being a penpal to my brother, and she agree'd to write to him. They write on a daily basis, exchanged pictures, tell each other their inner most feelings, and they fell in love. I am so happy that 2 people I love so dearly found love with each other. I feel in my heart I did the right thing asking Nancy to write to someone she didn't even know. She is so happy and so in love, and my brother feels the same way. I know when Paul is released in November of 2007 he will do everything in his power to make a life for him and Nancy. They are both so very special and I want only the best for them. And I can't wait to have Nancy living close by me, where I can see her all the time, go shopping, have a BBQ, have them over for dinner, and teach my new sister in law to be how to cook, lol. My brother loves to eat, so she'll have her hands full keeping him fed. Paul has told me when he is released he will work on his list of things to do. Job, divorce, a place to live so he can bring his Nancy to her new home with him. And he would like to be a Dad someday if they are blessed. he is so good with kids and really wants to have one or two of his own. I told him and Nancy both, they can borrow Rebecca on weekends, lol. Everytime I get a letter from Paul he always says give the baby a hug and kiss for me. Wait until he see's how big she has gotten when he gets out. But anyways, I just wanted to let you know of 2 very special people in my life, that I love dearly. And whenevr you have the time, go to my sidebar and click on Nancy's journal, desires, and read about her life, leave a comment if you'd like or just say hi. She is a wonderful person, lady.
I will go now. Gonna fix Rebecca something to eat, then tackle my closet, maybe. Depends on how I feel. Woke up with horrible bone pain today. Could be a sign winter is coming, grrrrrrrrrrr. Or maybe old age, lol. I say that because the other day I found a grey hair in my hair, and believe me I was not liking it one bit. Happy Halloween everyone, enjoy your day.
