Powerlessness

Posted in Family on August 28, 2006 by bofh69

Being a parent can sometimes suck. If your child falls down and goes boom, you feel bad. You do what you can to help them heal up as fast as possible; baby them, if you will. If your child has a bad relationship, you do the same; you be there and do what you can to help them sort through it. What do you do when your child is so completely ripped apart by what happened in her past?

I don’t know.

My children are the most important part of my life. Even my babies that I don’t really know. To see one of my kids in pain kills me.

We had a situation last night where some painful stuff got brought up in a conversation, and our oldest, Carol Anne, revisited some very painful memories. I wanted to kiss her and hug her and tell her it would be ok. I know it won’t change by me telling her it will. I wish it was that easy. It ain’t.

Baby girl, I love you with all my heart. I am sorry you had to go through those things. If you ever need to talk to me, you call. K?

Being powerless when your kids are hurting and they need you to help and you can’t….well that fucking blows chunks!

A man was in his front yard on Sunday mowing grass when his attractive blonde female neighbor came out of the house and went straight to the mailbox. She opened it, then slammed it shut and stormed back in the house. A little later she came out of her house again, went to the mailbox and peered inside, and slammed it shut a second time. Angrily, back into the house she went.

As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, here she came out again, marched to the mailbox, opened it, and then slammed it closed harder than ever, almost knocking the box off it’s post.

Puzzled by her actions, the man asked her, “Is something wrong?” To which she replied, “There certainly is! My stupid computer keeps saying, “YOU’VE GOT MAIL.”

Stole this one from Grouchy Old Cripple. It was too good not to repost here.

A girl came skipping home from school one day. “Mummy, Mummy,” she yelled. “We were counting today, and all the other kids could only count to four, but I counted to 10. See? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10!” “Very good,” said her mother. “Is it because I’m blonde, Mummy?” “Yes, it’s because you’re blonde,” her mother replied.

The next day, the girl came skipping home from school. “Mummy, Mummy,” she yelled, “we were saying the alphabet today, and all the other kids could only say it to D, but I said it to G. See? A, B, C, D, E, F, G!” “Very good,” said her mother. “Is it because I’m blonde, Mummy?” “Yes, pumpkin, it’s because you’re blonde.”

The next day the girl came skipping home from school. “Mummy, Mummy,” she yelled, “we were in gym class today, and when we showered, all the other girls had flat chests, but I have these!” And she lifted her tank top to reveal a pair of 36Cs. “Very good,” said her embarrassed mother. “Is it because I’m blonde, Mummy?” “No… it’s because you’re 25.”

Hat tip to Sparky.

My sister-in-law. I will never forget the first time I met her. Very Japanese, and very proper. She tolerated my brother and me’s bullshit. Trust me, that is no easy task. She made sure I was comfortable in her home, and she never ever let me forget I was welcome there.

Recently my lovely sister-in-law was diagnosed with leukemia. Apparently the kind of leukemia she had left her pretty much like a hemophiliac. Michiyo was in a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska and went downhill today. She was bleeding uncontrollably in her brain. The doctor told my brother that there was a really good chance that if she recovered she would be mostly paralyzed, and more likely than not, be a vegetable. I don’t know how he did it, and I don’t know where the strength come from, but he told them to take his wife off of life support. She lasted 7 hours. This amazing woman, mother of three, passed at 8:30pm tonight.

God rest your soul beautiful woman.

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it because you get up first, and then we don’t have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, “You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.” Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.” Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.” So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says … “HEBREWS”

The wife must have been a blonde. 😀
