You is Strong.

I just posted the video clip from the movie “The Help”   if I was better at navigating this blog posting stuff it would be inbedded in this post.  at any rate.

I need someone like the black woman in this clip.  (I appoligize if I am not politically correct in my terminology I do not mean to be).  I need someone to sit me down and tell me that I am kind, I am smart, and I am I am important.  I also need them to add that I am strong.

I need them to be here for the times when I forget that and I do stupid weak stuff.  like I did with the husband tonight.  I jumped at the littlest hint that he might be ready to give 100% to our marriage.  I showed weakness and not strength.  I need him to know that I can make it with out him.  That I deserve a honest committed husband who does not have a girlfriend on the side.   and that I will not settle for less.  and that the future of our marriage depends on his choice not mine.  He has the choice to make, not me.  I made my choice 30 years ago.  and I am sticking to it.

That being said I have a new choice to make in all my relationships.  I chose Myself.    I have never done that before.  not even as a child.  UGH.  now is when I need my own
