OSB ~ prologue

Who am I?

The memories come back sharply when I think of what crossed my mind as a kid. My impulse was to defy the rules and damn the consequences. As a teenager I learned quickly to pick reliable friends very cautiously, because trouble may follow us. Even today I have women in my life that I respect enough to tell me the truth, even if it hurts my spirit about what they think, I still ask the questions. I have written many thank you notes over the years when reaction would have created chaos for me. A good example of damn the consequences would be credit cards, buy now pay later.

Jake was definitely a "damn the consequences" kind of person.

Think for a minute... If I happened to show up on your
door step crying, would you care?

If I called you and asked you to pick me up because something happened, would you come?

If I had one day left, to live my life; would you be part of that last day?

If I needed a shoulder to cry on, would you give me yours?

Each one of the book buddies are my special friends. in spirit, all of you have let me grow, each one of you are welcome to my home anytime.

First I liked you, and then I love you, now I'm afraid to lose you.

I joined this wonderful group of people when you were reading the Secret Life of Bees...Hello Granita, good to see your post drop by when time permits and say "HI".

Live Simply, Love Generously, Care
Deeply, and Speak Kindly and Leave the Rest to God.
