Today this is about people who shoot arrows in our heart. Do you know what I mean? Do you have any people who just shoot arrows into you for no apparent reason?
I have an angel friend now for 30+ years. We go way back. I KNOW her. She has helped me and prayed for me and been there for me - she carries me sometimes and hopefully I do the same for her
She is a Christian, she's positive, she's happy - yet she has some concerns in her life.
One being her daughter's MIL. Oh boy. Her daughter has been married 3 years now and she has tried to be friends with this lady a million times in a million ways. It makes her sad. She is not used to people not liking her and snubbing her
And this MIL never talks to her when they are together, never answers an email, tells her son what my friend does that she doesn't like, and I guess just doesn't like my friend.
As we wrote back and forth and I told her she had to let go - not try anymore. Not to be mean, just don't try so hard to be friends with her. Was that good advise? This MIL doesn't know what she is missing having a friend like this.
Do you have people around you (toxic people) that being around makes you sick. It seems that they shoot arrows into you and you're always having to pull them out of yourself.
Negative people. Why are people so negative? Now if you don't live with them - it is easier to let go - but what if you live with them? What do you do?
Have you ever had a person in your life - who you wanted to be friends with and they were just cold or cool towards you? I know I have one in my life . . .
Hey, and I'm not talking about Cupid's arrow - that is another story! teehee
Happy Birthday to Clark Gable from Wikipedia - very interesting man - I put the website below:
At seventeen, Gable was inspired to be an actor after seeing the play The Bird of Paradise, but he was not able to make a real start until he turned 21 and inherited money. By then, his stepmother Jennie had died and his father moved to Tulsa to go back to the oil business.
He toured in stock companies and worked the oil fields and as a horse manager. Gable found work with several second-class theater companies and worked his way across the Midwest to Portland, Oregon, where he found work as a necktie salesman in the Meier & Frank department store.
While there, he met actress Laura Hope Crews, who encouraged him to go back to the stage and into another theater company. His acting coach was a theater manager in Portland, Oregon, Josephine Dillon (seventeen years his senior). And who later became his first wife.
Dillon paid to have his teeth repaired and his hair styled. She guided him in building up his chronically undernourished body, and taught him better body control and posture. She spent considerable time training his naturally high-pitched voice, which Gable slowly managed to lower, and he gained better resonance and tone. As his speech habits improved, Gable's facial expressions became more natural and convincing. After the long period of rigorous training, she eventually considered him ready to attempt a film career.
