The third time's the charm....

Proverb.... The third time you try to do something, it will work.
A long time ago my mom and dad married each other and while I'm so happy they did (DUH) they really were never very well suited for each other.
In time they went their separate ways.
And both met (and married) new partners relatively soon after their split.
The gentleman my mom married was a really great guy...just not for her.
And my dad's new pick....gosh, I hate to say it, but the phrase "evil step-mom" or the name "Virginia Woolf" comes to mind when I think of her.
In time they too went their separate ways.
And then again both met new partners.
My mom has a wonderful husband of over 20 years. He is kind and generous and puts her above all others.
My dad has a wonderful woman of over 20 years. She is kind and generous and puts him above all others.
The third time is the charm.
And it has been heavenly for my sister and I.
We don't have to worry about either of them.
They've both have found "true love" and happiness.
And really... what more can a person ask for...?
My dad's other half suffered a heart attack on Sunday. She is currently in the hospital and fighting really hard to come home.
I don't know "who" your God is...but I ask you to kindly say a few words on my step-mother's behalf.
Could you ask him please to hold off on taking this one...she is very needed.
And loved,
by all of us...
especially my dad.


  1. She's in my prayers - as well as the rest of your family. I needed these words today in a way I can not explain. Thank you.

  2. Awww Jessie, I'm sending some prayers your way too. Funny how sometimes we are just what each other needs. xoxo


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
