Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Good Reason

"I hope you are not offended if i say that your journal is just another reason amongst many that i am glad i never married."

I received this email after someone had read my journal. I was not at all offended with the email and I understood perfectly where she was coming from.

After all, three marriages, doesn't speak highly for me, but I wonder had I gone to her journal and stated the total opposite "After reading your journal, I'm sure glad I married 3 times." I think she may possibly have come back with something similar to what I am about to say but just a different scenario.  We all have our purposes in life and this was one of mine.

It started me thinking about my life and I shudder at the thought of never having married. I cry at the idea that I would have never gazed into these eyes. This is the reason I married and this is the reason I will never ever in my entire life regret it. This moment in my life was the day I realized what it meant to be a woman and everything before and after means very little compared to this.

This was the first time I held my grandson in the delivery room and he opened his eyes and looked at me.  He had me hook, line and sinker at this very moment.

You have a damned good way of capturing the heart of the matter. With the bad, comes a lot of good. And you recognize that.

Oh yeah, I KNOW where you're coming from... even though I've only been married once.  But e-mails like that make for the best journal entries.    http://journals.aol.com/mosie1944/MYCOUNTRYLIFE

I'm glad you could give her a reason to feel good about her current state. LOL
And I think that photo of your grandson says it all---It was worth it!

I don't regret being married both times I was either, if only because I got 4 healthy, beautiful, children out of the deal.

LIke you, I was proud as all get out when my grandson Austin was born.  Unfortunately, because my son has chose to alienate himself from me as much as possible, the child is almost 4, and has seen me a totoal of 4 times.  Maybe once a year.  He has no clue who I am, and it breaks my heart.

I am so happy that you have your grandson, Sam.  I know, from your past entries, how very much he means to you...

Isnt it funny, with babies, the minute they are born, we dont know anything about them, but we fall instantly in love with them ??
