Blog Fodder #2

This week’s topic was submitted to Blog Fodder by Nikki-ann and it’s another good one.

Tell us about somebody who has changed your life, even if just a little bit.

Every one who has entered my life has changed it, from a momentary blip to a lifetime. In my childhood and teenhood it was people who made my life worse. That carried on into a disastrous violent relationship.

I had reached my lowest ebb, my life was meaningless and I could see no way out - that's when I met MB.

He was a manager in my new office and I didn't think much of him on first sight but working together brought us closer and we slowly made friends.
I decided to leave the destructive relationship, and the problems began in earnest. 'A' started stalking me, and I began sleepwalking and having screaming nightmares. MB was there for me, holding me and comforting me. He sat up at night and cradled me, he took me out to help me forget, most importantly he made me laugh.

He has always been demonstrative and loving, and in the back of my bedside drawer I have a wrinkled old piece of paper dating back over 20yrs, given to me at the height of my troubles, and written on it is:

Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now

Baby when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn't hard to say
But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now.

I don't need to see the paper and I don't need to read the words to know what they say.

They say; I love you and I always will. If you can't be strong I'll be strong for you.

That is so wonderful. And how fortunate you are to actually know how blessed you are.

PS: on Michele's blog, you said you couldn't get my blog to open. Would you mind trying it again? I think (hope) I've fixed the problem. Thanks!

That is really touching, yes it really is me.
I LOVE the calendar Naomi sent you btw.

also just a quick note to say I FINALLY updated my blog ( two posts even whoo go me) and I am still around and alive and now trying to catch up on reading blogs which could take awhile I think.
Have a fantastic day. I have missed "seeing" you. I am going to make an effort to get around more often I promise.

Here from Michele.
This is such a sweet post. You are one blessed to have found MB. Sounds like a keeper to me.
My love, turned out not to be and so far no white knight. I have learned to be content and enjoy life on my own.
