I HAVE THE BEST NEWS!

YESTERDAY, ON JULY 1ST, MY 52ND BIRTHDAY, I HAD THE BEST NEWS, THAT I EVER RECEIVED IN MY WHOLE LIFE!...........THE PAROLE OFFICER CAME TO THE HOUSE TO APPROVE JIMMY'S FIRST FURLOUGH HOME!....THEY CAME HERE UNEXPECTEDLY, AND DID NOT RING THE DOOR-BELL...WHEN I OPENED THE DOOR, TO GET THE NEWSPAPER, THEY HAD LEFT AN OFFICIAL LETTER FOR ME.  I HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO CALL THE PAROLE OFFICER ON TUESDAY.  YOU SEE, PAROLE HAS TO VERIFY YOUR ADDRESS, AND MAKE  SURE THE PERSON HAS A PLACE TO RETURN TO.....SO, WE ARE SO VERY HAPPY.....WE FIGURE MAYBE THE FOLLOWING WEEK HE WILL BE GRANTED THE FURLOUGH HOME....IT WILL HOPEFULLY BE FOR 2 DAYS.....JIMMY IS ALL EXCITED, AND ALREADY TALKING ABOUT WHAT HE WILL DO WHEN HE GETS HERE...AND WHAT FOOD HE WILL BE COOKING!...BEFORE JIMMY TURNED HIMSELF INTO JAIL, WE WERE SHOPPING IN A DOLLAR STORE TOGETHER, AND SAW A "WELCOME HOME"  SIGN.  WE BOUGHT IT, AND I'VE KEPT IT IN THE CLOSET SINCE THAT TIME...IT IS NOW 28 MONTHS LATER, AND I CAN FINALLY TAKE IT OUT OF THE CLOSET, AND HANG IT ON THE DOOR OF THE HOUSE...TRUTHFULLY, I THOUGHT THAT DAY WOULD NEVER COME, BUT NOW UNBELIEVABLY, IT IS FAST APPROACHING!....IT IS ALL LIKE A DREAM...IT IS AS IF TIME HAS STOOD STILL FOR ME...I AM STILL THE SAME PERSON I WAS THE DAY JIMMY WALKED OUT OF THIS DOOR....IT IS PROBABLY AN UNUSUAL, PHENOMINAL THING, WHERE PEOPLE MENTALLY "LOCK" THERE BRAINS IN TO BELIEVING THAT TIME IS STANDING STILL...MY LIFE STOPPED THE DAY JIMMY LEFT HERE, AND NOW, IT WILL SOON PROCEED ON WARD, AGAIN...I WONDER IF REASEARCH HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT THIS.  IT IS AN A PHENOMENAL OCCURANCE, WHERE YOU STOP LIVING, IN A WORLD THAT IS MOVING ON...I BET THIS HAPPENS TO MANY PEOPLE IN OUR SOCIETY THAT WE ARE UNAWARE OF...LIKE PEOPLE THAT ARE THE FAMILY OF MISSING PEOPLE AND CHILDREN.  THEY BECOME STUCK IN TIME, AND CANNOT PROCEED AHEAD..IT IS A VERY FUNNY FEELING, UNLESS YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE...AND NOW, I FEEL I AM BEING RELEASED, AND CAN BEGIN TO GO AHEAD WITH LIFE......LOVE TO ALL, THAT HAVE READ THIS JOURNAL, AND HAVE BEEN SUPPORTIVE OF ME, THROUGHOUT THE YEARS....(OR IS IT YEARS, BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY, THAT JIMMY LEFT).............FRAN
