"HOPE HALL"

JIMMY ARRIVED AT "HOPE HALL" TODAY!........HE CALLED ME AT 3PM, TO SAY HE HAD ARRIVED, AND WAS FILLING OUT PAPERWORK..........HE WAS VERY HAPPY, AND EVERYTHING WAS MOVING ALONG SMOOTHLY. 

HIS PAROLE OFFICER DROVE HIM, AND ALL WENT WELL!  THEY STOPPED AT DUNKIN DONUTS, AND JIMMY BOUGHT 2 BAGELS, AND COFFEE.  JIMMY WILL HOPEFULLY START BACK TO HIS JOB, AT IGA FOODSTORE, NEXT MONDAY.......

JIMMY THEN CALLED ME A SECOND TIME, AND SAID HE WAS  GOING TO TAKE A SHOWER, AND GET SETTLED.......

THE GOOD PART IS THAT HE CAN NOW MAKE EITHER A REGULAR COLLECT PHONE CALL, OR USE A PHONE CARD.......I GAVE HIM THE NUMBERS ON A PHONE CARD I HAVE HERE, AND TOMORROW I WILL GO AND BUY AT LEAST 4 MORE PHONE CARDS..........A $5.00 PHONE CARD IS MUCH CHEAPER THAN THE $1000.00 OR MORE per month,  I WAS SPENDING AT LOGAN HALL..............

CALLS, CALLS, AND MORE CALLS!..........SUCH IS THE DUTY OF THE PRISONER'S WIFE!.......AND SO, I ALREADY CALLED THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, TO CHANGE HIS DELIVERY ADDRESS TO HOPE HALL.  THEN , I CALLED THE OWNER OF IGA FOODSTORES,  TWICE, AND THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO JIMMY COMING BACK TO HIS JOB ON MONDAY.......TOMORROW I WILL CALL JIMMY'S COUNSELOR......AND TOMORROW I WILL CALL HIS ATTORNEY TO NOTIFY HIM WHERE JIMMY IS...........AFTER 3.1 YEARS, I AM GETTING USED TO ALL THIS........FINALLY!  JIMMY HAS MOVED WITHIN THE PRISON SYSTEM, 9 TIMES, YES 9 TIMES IN THE PAST 3.1 YEARS......

EVERY TIME THAT JIMMY IS MOVED, IT IS A VERY QUIET DAY FOR ME............I SIT AT HOME, KEEP THE HOUSE QUIET.....NO RADIO OR TV...........I JUST SIT AND WAIT QUIETLY FOR HIS CALLS TO COME IN............I LIKE IT THAT WAY.............I THINK I TAKE AFTER MY ITALIAN GRANDMOTHER WHO DID THE SAME THING WHEN I WAS GROWING UP.......SOME DAYS WERE JUST SPECIAL ONES, AND THE HOUSE WOULD BE KEPT QUIET.....NO ACTIVITY, UNTIL THINGS SETTLED DOWN..........

AND SO, NOW I FEEL MUCH BETTER.  EVERYTHING ONCE AGAIN FEELS MORE BALANCED , MORE PEACEFUL, AND MORE IN HARMONY............

OUR LIVES FEEL MORE IN BALANCE....MORE PEACEFUL.....

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M IN A BOAT, AND HAVE TO KEEP IT BALANCED.....................I THINK THAT HAS BEEN MY ROLE IN THESE PAST 3.1 YEARS....TO KEEP EVERYTHING IN HARMONY...WELL, JIMMY AND I COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER TO KEEP IT IN BALANCE..........

WELL, IT IS NOW 6 PM, AND I JUST MADE THE FIRST POT OF COFFEE....IN A LITTLE WHILE I'LL COOK SOMETHING........NOW, I'LL TAKE PRINCE OUT, ON THIS COOL AND CLOUDY DAY........

THINGS ARE ONCE AGAIN MOVING ALONG.........THAT IS HOW IT IS IN LIFE!

ps....I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL COMMENTS, AND CARING SO MUCH...AS YOU CAN ALL CLEARLY SEE, THERE ARE "A LOT OF US WOMEN OUT THERE".......WIVES/GIRLFRIENDS OF PRISONERS, THAT IS....AND WE KEEP MOVING ALONG THROUGH LIFE!

He is so lucky to have you in his life.  You obviously give him stability while he is going through this rough time.  You are one strong lady.  I applaud you!! When is his release date? I hope not much longer.             Pamela
