THANK YOU

THANK YOU ALL, FOR YOUR COMMENTS, AND WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND KINDNESS. 

PLEASE GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS ENTRY, AND READ THE KIND AND SINCERE WORDS OF   "MANDY MEME,"   "CCOMECULO," AND  "BOBAND KATE."

IT IS PEOPLE LIKE THIS WHO ARE FULL OF LOVE, AND ARE AN ASSET TO OUR WORLD...........

I WAS TALKING TO MY FRIEND "JOE, " IN LAS VEGAS, WHO IS AN R.N., THAT I WORKED WITH FOR 10 YEARS.  ...........................AS JOE SAYS, "PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND UNLESS THEY THEMSELVES HAVE BEEN THERE."........................IT IS JUST A FACT OF LIFE....

AND, THIS DOES NOT ONLY PERTAIN TO THE "BAD" EXPERIENCES IN LIFE.

IT COULD BE A 'SPITITUAL RE-AWAKENING " OF SOME SORT...................OR AN "OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE, "OR A "NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE.".......................

WE JUST DON'T KNOW................UNLESS WE HAVE BEEN THERE.  AND EVEN THEN, EACH PERSON MAY EXPERIENCE IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY, ANYHOW.

WHAT IF YOU SUDDENLY, THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD, WON THE LOTTERY, TOMORROW, AND BECAME A MILLIONAIRE, OVER-NITE................................WOULD ANY OF YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE?  I DOUBT IT.  UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN THERE, YOU WOULD NOT, AND COULD NOT UNDERSTAND.

AND SO, MY FELLOW PRISON WIVES, WE ARE IN A UNIQUE POSITION IN LIFE.  WE ARE WHERE WE ARE, AND SO BE IT.  I DOUBT THAT ANY OF US HAVE EVER SAID HOW WE DON'T THINK OUR HUSBAND COMMITTED A CRIME, AND DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE IN PRISON. 

I KNOW THAT JIMMY AND I ALWAYS ADMIT AND AM SORRY FOR THE CRIME HE COMMITTED.  HOWEVER, THE PURPOSE OF THIS JOURNAL WAS TO SHARE MY FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS WITH YOU..........................TO BRING YOU ALONG ON A VERY LONG AND DIFFICULT JOURNEY.

I , MYSELF, HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS JOURNEY BEFORE, IN LIFE.  SO IT PLEASES ME TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.

AND NOW, ON ANOTHER NOTE, JIMMY WILL ONCE AGIAN COME HOME TOMOPRROW, WEDNESDAY, FOR HIS 12 HOUR VISIT.

WE ARE ALWAYS SO EXCITED, AND HAVE THINGS PLANEED.

HOWEVER, IT GETS HARDER AND HARDER WHEN HE HAS TO GO BACK AT 8 PM.

WHY? .....................BECAUSE A HUSBAND'S PLACE IS AT HIS WIFE'S SIDE.........................TO SLEEP IN THE BED WITH HIS WIFE, NOT IN A ROOM WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF MEN!

A HUSBAND'S PLACE IS TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, NEXT TO HIS WIFE, AND FOR THEM TO JOYFULLY GO ABOUT THE DAY, DOING CONSTRUCTIVE THINGS, AND LEADING A HAPPY, PEACEFUL LIFE.

WELL, I AM NOW GETTING THE HOUSE READY FOR JIMMY NOW.  I AM WASHING THE BED SHEETS, MOPPING AND VACUUMING FLOORS, AND WILL SOON MAKE HIS PITCHER OF ICE TEA, WHICH I ALWAYS MAKE, AS HE LOVES IT!

BYE FOR NOW, AND PLEASE EVERYONE, HAVE A NICE DAY!

...................................FRAN

Awwwww, so glad Jimmy is coming home again to stay those special 12 hours with you. I am looking forward to the day when he can come home and stay, because I know you are also looking forward to that day. Mmmmmmm iced tea, I love homemade iced tea. I don't use sugar in mine, I sweeten it with orange slices. I really like reading your journal and hearing all about you and Jimmy and those delicious sounding meals he prepares, yummy. Well, you have a wonderful day tomorrow, and say hi to Jimmy from one of your JLand friends, who is me. (((HUGS TO YOU BOTH))))) Cindy

I think the writer of the email meant your attitude that the prisons were TRYING to ruin families etc.Familes may be ruined, but more by the ones who committed the crimes. I hope Jimmy gets out for good soon and you can have the kind of marriage you will like!
