LIFE MOVES ON

HI EVERYONE!.......ONCE AGAIN, LIFE MOVES ON!....I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET AWAY WITH IT!.........TOMORROW, NEW YEAR'S EVE, IS THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF THIS JOURNAL.  YES, IT WAS IN THE EVENING, BEFORE MIDNIGHT, THAT I SAT HERE , ALONE, DEPRESSED, IN A COLD , LONELY HOUSE, WITH MY 3 ANIMALS SURROUNDING ME.......JIMMY HAD MADE HIS USUAL 15 MINUTE COLLECT CALL FROM BAYSIDE STATE PRISON, AND HE HAD SUGGESTED I START A JOURNAL ON AOL..........AND SO I DID.........THAT WAS MY FIRST ENTRY , ON 12/31/03......IT WAS ONLY A FEW LINES.  AND THEN I BEGAN TO WRITE AND WRITE, AND REALIZED THAT THIS JOURNAL WAS HELPING THOUSANDS OF WOMEN ACROSS AMERICA, MANY IN MY SAME SHOES, SOME JUST INTERESTED IN MY UNUSUAL LIFE....AND THEN, LAST WINTER, A NEWSPAPER REPORTER FOR "THE PRESS OF ATLANTIC CITY," FOUND MY JOURNAL WHILE DOING RESEARCH FOR PRISONS, ON "GOOGLE, " AND HE WAS SO IMPRESSED BY THIS JOURNAL, THAT HE WROTE A STORY ABOUT ME, THAT APPEARED IN THE FEB. 20, 2005 EDITION OF THE PAPER........HE CAME HERE, TO MY HOUSE TO INTERVIEW ME FOR 2 HOURS, AND SENT A PHOTOGRAHER TO TAKE PIX.......HE EVEN GOT SPECIAL PERMISSION TO GO TO KINTOCK TO INTERVIEW JIMMY FOR 2 HOURS...........AND I WAS HAPPY ABOUT ALL THAT.........I WAS PORTRAYED AS A WOMAN THAT IS HELPING OTHER PRISONER'S WIVES , DURING THEIR DIFFICULT TIME........PEOPLE FIND STRENGTH IN ME..........AND YET, ALTHOUGH THEY SAY I AM STRONG, I AM ALSO VERY WEAK.......IT'S A STRANGE LIFE...IT IS LIKE YOU EXIST, BUT YOU ARE NO WHERE.................AND SO, I CONTINUE TO WRITE, HOPEFULLY NOT BORING YOU.......AND HOPEFULLY NOT DEPRESSING YOU!

WELL, JIMMY WENT TO CLASSIFICATION YESTERDAY.  I KNOW WHERE HE WILL BE SENT TO NEXT WEEK.  HOWEVER, I WILL KEEP YOU IN SUSPENCE FOR A WHILE LONGER.

AT THIS POINT, WE CAN ONLY LOOK TO THE SPRING, AND THE NEW YEAR................IT IS SO STRANGE.......I NEVER LIVED LIKE THIS BEFORE...........WAITING, AND WAITING........FOR THE MONTHS AND SEASONS TO PASS........AND THAT IS WHAT "TIME, "  IS ALL ABOUT...........WAITING FOR TIME TO PASS........."DOING TIME."......WE MUST REMEMBER, "TIME" IS A MAN-MADE CONCEPT.........IN THE WORLD OF GOD, TIME DOES NOT EXIST........TIME IS INFINITY..NO BEGINNING, AND NO END........AND SO BE IT.....................................FRAN

Time passes quickly, so it's important that we give life our best shot, and you did, and continue to do that. Your journal has helped a lot of people. You're a blessing, hon. Hope you know that.
Hugs, and Happy New Year.

Fran, that was neat you got featured in the paper last year. You are right; the Lord does not measure time like we measure time.

I hope that everyone who supports "jimmy" has his come to their neighborhood with the drugs he was convicted of attempting to transport thru the country(info obtained from a conversation with his wife) and your kids get some of it. We will see how you support someone with a 25 year criminal record then.
