I'm not an Eastern rose;

Double Dang It

I had a heart-wrending post all about my miserable childhood ready for today, and danged if it didn't load out of sequence and have to be deleted. It was a guaranteed sympathy-getter and everything. Poor raggedy me of long ago, getting whipped and wearing one threadbare skirt fer years. Etc etc.

Alas, I not in the mood of rewrite it. So I'll just post the picture that went with it -- a lovely vintage work by a talented artist of the past.

    Love this pic! We're never too old to feel the zing of a new season...walking through leaves, kicking them up brings back warm memories. The musty smell, the crunch.
    Childhoods can haunt us forever, and shape us into the adults we are today...whether they were rotten or blessed.
    You, are a special, unique, and dear soul. You may be the product of your upbringing...and have some scars, but girl.......you are much admired by all of us. We just darn like ya!

    Huh? Delete? Just change the time stamp and re-publish. Or am I not following what you eman?

  • Doris Sturm

    Oh, how sad, Holly - nobody should treat children that way! That is a lovely picture of that lady catching that falling leaf. I can tell you have autumn on your mind ;-) I'm looking forward to it too. Have a nice day and a great weekend :-)
    Yours,
    Doris and Gizzy

  • Mary at Deep South Dish

    Yeah, you have me puzzled on the loading out of sequence and deleting thing. Couldn't you just edit the post by changing the date and then save it as a draft?? Confused.

    Pretty picture. Love the vintage stuff! Hope ya have a great weekend!

    I hate to hear that anyone had a miserable childhood, but you would never know it here, on your blog. You've got such a great sense of humor, and you've "growed up" real good!
    Love today's graphic, of the fancy gloved lady. She looks like a famous actress from the past, but I can't think who. It's going to drive me nuts now until I figure it out!
    Have a great weekend!

    My Holly girl, I think we can say that alot of us had terrible childhoods, some to lesser degrees than others, but there is an old sayin, "what doesn't kill you just makes you stronger" there are times I feel sorry for myself for my childhood and want to have a pity party, but then I realize that just made me more determend to treat others better than I was treated. You are so much better than your childhood, it has made you so strong and loving.
    I feel for you, especially right now when I am also feeling sorry for myself, we deserve to do that every now and then, but I have decided to just hold my interchild and let her know she was loved and is safe now.
    I appricate you Holly you have always been here for me when I am down.

    well I am totally pissed now...grrrr, spent 30 minutes writing you a nice long note of encouragement and some of my feels from a bad childhood and when I posted it ..it vanished..guess it wasn't meant to be posted...lol..so I'll just say What didn't kill us made us stronger and we are survivors.
    Love you girl. You are awesome.
