Thank you!

Thank you everyone , for your good thoughts and well wishes!...Everything went great today!  Jimmy saw the psychiatrist, and was done in about 2 minutes, flat!  The psychiatrist said he is ready to leave the prison, and go to the half-way house evaluation center!  We are so happy and thrilled!  Jimmy and I have been floating on air all day!  Jimmy says he can just feel me in his arms!  And of course I feel the same!  Not a moment goes by, that I don't think of Jimmy, since he has been gone the past 15 months.  He is part of my body and soul.  In my mind I make love to him all day.  He walks with me, sleeps with me, touches me, kisses me........I play romantic love songs all day.  I know every word of those songs by heart!...I dance in front of him, pretending he is here.  Being in love is a wonderful feeling!...endomorphones are rushing through our body constantly!  I suggest everyone "fall in love!"  Statistically, the feeling of elation of being in love only lasts about 6 months at the most. Physically, they say, the feeling of being in love , cannot physically last very long.  It is hard for the human body to concentrate and be productive when in love.  Well, we've proven the statistics wrong!  It is 3 years and 3 months, and we are still ectastically in love!....even though apart, we did it!  it is usually teenagers that feel this kind of love...called infatuation....well, guys, we still have it...at 49 and 51 years old!...............................Well, more good news today!  I got another, YES ANOTHER, story published.  I got the contract in the mail, today!  It is called  "Here Comes the Bride."  Of course it is the story of "Yours Truely!".......jimmy and I...our wedding in Las VEGAS...........It will be published in the Sept. issue of "True LOVE MAGAZINE"....And, on top of it all, I even get paid for it!....I just can't believe I'm getting so many things published....and it is really so easy for me!....(well anyone can do it, if they take the time, and persist)..................Just one more thing, I will not be driving alone to the half-way house.  I cannot handle new and unknown places to drive to.  So A senior citizen family friend will be driving me....I have him all psyched up about going there to see Jimmy.  This friend drives me to doctors appointments, etc. and helps out around the house....for example, he put screen doors up, bought food for me in the snow, and would stop by to get the mail in the snow.  So, please don't worry...I won't be driving!.................Take care everyone!........Hope you have a nice evening, and thank you for reading my journal!......All comments are welcome.  Come on, prison wives, share your thoughts with me!.............FRAN, A PRISONER'S WIFE

FRAN!!!!!!!!!  I am so happy for you and this is an answer to many prayers from your loving online friends and more.  I just got goose bumps when I read your entry tonight.  I feel like crying.  But they are tears of joy for you and Jimmy.  My love, thoughts, and prayers go with you.  I have a weird request....is there a way you can post a picture of yourself and Jimmy?  I just love picturing my friends online while I read their letters, journals, etc.  I have pics on my profile at AOL.  Although I know not everyone has a digital camera or scanner.  Doesn't hurt to ask, huh?  If not, that is ok, too.  Just thought I would ask. :)  Hope to hear more good news from you soon....

Love, Gretchen

Dear Gretchen: Thank you so much for your beautiful words and thoughts.  I,too, am sitting here with tears in my eyes, for what you have said.  Yes, you are my online friends. When I started this journal, on NEW YEAR'S EVE, I was just about at my wit's end.  And then I suddenly found pleasure and joy in writing this journal. and finding so many friends that cared about me in an individual way.  Through the winter, and then the spring, I somehow made it, and now here we are in the summer....and things are moving along and progressing. It is my wish that through my written words, I have helped others, too, as well as myself!  Funny thing is, it was Jimmy that told me that day, Dec. 31, 2003, about blogs and journals!  He had advised me to go on-line and try it. lol! Jimmy does so much reading, that he knows about things before I do, outside in the real world.  I'll be sending you some pix. Anyone that wants one can ask me, and I will gladly send one. LOL...I have a scanner, can't get it working and my dig cams are in storagfe in Las Vegas...I have another dig cam here, but can't get it going, so Jimmy will fix everything when he gets home.  I have an old pix,  3 years ago, I'll send you, and I can send a pix from my cell phone, I've taken of myself.....More good news. I got another story published, in "TRUE LOVE MAGAZINE," Sept. 2004 edition.  It is called "HERE COMES THE BRIDE." ...it is the story of our wedding, and there is a pix of us there that I submitted. Those magazines can be found in pharmacies, etc....You will see in my pix that I am just a regular person, not a criminal! However, I will always be "JIMMY'S PRISON WIFE.!".........I saw your pix! You are very pretty, and have a "little sparkle in your eyes!"..........Love, Fran

FRAN, I AM SO GLAD EVERYTHING WENT WELL FOR YOU AND JIMMY.  MY PRAYERS WILL BE WITH YOU ON YOUR TRIP TO PICK HIM UP AND THE MOMENTS AFTER.  IT'S NICE TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE ELSE HAS THE SAME FEELINGS THAT I DO REGARDING THE LOVE YOU HAVE AND THE WAY YOU CARRY HIM WITH YOU.  IT'S JUST LIKE YOUR NEVER ALONE, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE THOSE TIMES WE JUST WANT THEM TO BE THERE RIGHT THEN AND THERE TO SHARE SOMETHING WITH US.  MY HEART IS OVERWHELMED WITH THE LOVE I HAVE FOR MY HUSBAND.  SO MANY WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND, SAYS OH, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE'LL DO WHEN HE GETS OUT, ETC. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.  I JUST BY PASS THAT BECAUSE I KNOW HIM INSIDE OUT.  MY CHILDREN LEFT FOR THEIR FATHER'S TODAY FOR TWO WEEKS, I'LL BE BY MYSELF. NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I DON'T GET ON WITH MY LIFE AND I DON'T FEEL THAT WAY, I AM LIVING MY LIFE.  WE ARE JUST SEPARTED BY A FENCE AT THIS TIME AND WE MAKE THE MOST OUT OF WRITING EACH OTHER VERY OFTEN AND OUR VISIT ON THE WEEKEND.  THE PEOPLE THAT DO UNDERSTAND ARE MY REAL FRIENDS, THEY STICK WITH YOU.  I COULD GO OUT AND I HAVE BEFORE BUT IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME AND I DON'T BELONG AROUND SOME OF THE PEOPLE OUT THERE ACTING WORSE THAN WHAT MY HUSBAND IS IN FOR !! I DO MISS HIM BUT I CONCENTRATE ON OUR FUTURE.  I'M VERY HAPPY FOR YOU!! YOU GIVE MY WISHES TO JIMMY, TOO.  I KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH HIM SELF WITH THE CHANGES AND EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE WONDERFUL FOR YOU BOTH. YOU JUST MADE ANOTHER STEP AND SOON YOU'LL BE RUNNING ALONG GETTING ON TOGETHER WITH LIFE. I'M HAPPY FOR YOU. WITH A TRUE HEART. I HOPE THAT I CAN CALL YOU FRIEND. DONNA TEL636@AOL.COM

Hi Fran,     Such good news about Jimmy.   This is a happy day for you both.   I was thinking about you two the other day as we drove through N.J. to New England.  
You are right on regarding love being wonderful.  My hubby and I have been married over 45 years. and we still hold hands, and laugh every day.  I wish for you and Jimmy the same.    Congrats on the publishing of your latest story.     Also happy that you have a nice friend to drive you places and helps with home repairs until Jimmy returns.
I would also like a picture.   Take care, love to you and Jimmy.  Dawn
