STILL NO PHONE

STILL NO PHONE CALLS....IT HAS NOW BEEN 31 DAYS, WITH NO TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION.  I COMMUNICATE WITH JIMMY THROUGH AN INMATE'S MOTHER, WHO HAS 2 PHONE LINES, AND SHE TELLS JIMMY WHAT I SAY, AND SHE TELLS ME WHAT HE SAYS....WE DO THIS FOR A FEW MINUTES, AS WE HAVE IMPORTANT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT....AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE KEEP SENDING MAIL...LETTERS AND CARDS.......

I CALL THE T-NETIX LADY EVERYDAY, IN HOPES OF RESOLVING THIS ISSUE, WITH NO OUTCOME.......JIMMY TOLD ME TODAY, THAT SOMETHING LIKE 3500 INMATES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED WITH THIS PHONE PROBLEM, AND HE IS ONE OF THEM....WELL. I WISH WE COULD BE SO LUCKY WITH THE LOTTERY!

IT IS ONLY 16 MORE DAYS UNTIL JIMMY IS TRANSFERRED, ON PAROLE, TO THE HALF-WAY-BACK HOUSE.......VERY GOOD.

JIMMY SAYS IN HIS LETTER, THAT THE PRISON SYSTEM TRIES DESPARETLY TO TEAR APART MARRIAGES.  AND YOU KNOW WHAT?  HE IS RIGHT.  BUT TRY, AS THEY MAY, WE ARE STRONGER THAN THEM, AS WE HAVE A MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN, AND BLESSED BY GOD...AND NO MAN-MADE INSTITUTION CAN TEAR US APART........SO, WE CONTINUE, TO LOVE, AND BE A FAMILY, DESPITE ALL THE UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES........

I RECEIVED A LETTER, FROM A READER OF THIS JOURNAL, ASKING JUST HOW AM I SO POSITIVE, AND HOW I GO ON....

WELL, MY ANSWER IS, THAT I NOT ONLY AM "IN LOVE" WITH JIMMY, BUT I SIMPLY LOVE HIM, TOO.  YOU SEE, JIMMY HAS ALWAYS BEEN MORE THAN WONDERFUL, TO ME, IN MANY, MANY DIFFERENT WAYS, DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE IS A CRIMINAL, AND HAS DONE WRONG THINGS.  DESPITE PRISON, HE TAKES CARE OF ME, HIS WIFE, AND HIS HOUSEHOLD.  HE "CARES" ABOUT WHAT GOES ON , HERE, AT HOME, DESPITE MOST INCARCERATED MEN, DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT THEIR HOUSEHOLDS.  JIMMY AND I WORK ON OUR LOVE AND MARRIAGE, DESPITE PRISON WALLS...THAT IS WHY TELEPHONE COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT..HOWEVER, THIS LONG PERIOD OF TIME ONLY PROVES THAT OUR LOVE GROWS EVEN STRONGER, WITHOUT TALKING.

BEFORE JIMMY LEFT HOME, WE MADE LOTS OF MOVIES, WITH THE CAMCORDER...SO WHENEVER I WANT TO, I LOOK AT THOSE TAPES, OF THE TWO OF US TOGETHER.

SO, YES, JIMMY IS BASICALLY  A VERY MATURE MAN WHO CARES ABOUT HIS MARRIAGE, AND DESPITE PRISON, WE ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE...........

PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU A LOT OF THINGS IN LIFE....BUT ONLY LISTEN TO YOURSELF, AND YOUR INNER VOICE.........EVEN PRISON CAN BE A LESSON, AND A BAD  EXPERIENCE CAN BE TURNED INTO A POSITIVE ONE, BELIEVE IT OR NOT!...................FRAN
