In Spite of the Rumor…I am NOT DEAD.

Nope!!!   Not me!  
Hey guys.   I know…it has been a long time since I had a few minutes to post.   I apologize….I have just been SO very busy this past year, that even those little projects that I have had time to do, I haven’t had time to share!
I have heard many times this past year, that a certain someone has spent some time telling people that I passed away.   I heard it again this morning when I opened my email.   I decided that it was time to set the record straight.   When I accidentally bump into these people, it scares the heck out of them to have me actually say hello to them!  They thought I had passed away in the 90’s!!!   
Now, I was not surprised to hear that this ‘person’ has been saying these things.   It will never surprise me when it comes to that.   The lies, manipulations and drama that this person brings to the lives of everyone around them is astronomical.  Deception is a game at which this person is a master.   This person needs help.
I am happy to say that I am alive, healthy and happier than I have ever been in my lifetime.   I did not pass away 15 years ago…and I haven’t been even close to death for you to have misunderstood the enormous lie you were hearing!   Grammie and Grampie, the kids, the Cowboy and I, well…we are living the way families are supposed to live.   Perfectly imperfect.   No façade of perfect here…no need to create the ‘image’ to match the lies…we are just us…alive, well, and happy together living honest lives.
I have been working between 16-18 hours a day on my little business…it has taken off very fast and has been very successful…and is growing bigger every day!   I am also working with Grammie at the store…taking care of a house full of teenagers (and ‘Busy’)   and trying to keep my head above that laundry level!  lol
Things here are good.   Happy, safe, peaceful and just plain good!   There was a time however, a few years ago when things changed in my family quite dramatically.   I am sure some of you remember those days well…and know of what I speak here.   At the time, my family was devastated…confused and in shock.   How could one person be so cold as to say and do these awful things?  
Well, it turns out that this turn of events, although tragic, was amongst the biggest blessings of our lives.   In the aftermath, we found out the truth about not only ourselves but about other things that had been unclear for so long.   The burdens were lifted…and the anger, false truths and nastiness were gone.  Lies that had come to the surface were cleared up…and all that was left was love!
I do have to say…that it must be difficult to curate a life that isn’t entirely real…and even harder to look ones’ self in the mirror knowing all of the awful things that have been said and done BY you.   Wearing a mask all the time must get weary…and hiding from Karma has got to be exhausting!   My heart no longer hurts for you…or pitty’s you….I do believe you will, in the long run get what you so richly deserve.
The moral of this story seems to be that evil comes in many a shape and size.   Satin is after all, a master of disguise.   He might show up quietly and take you by surprise… evil often will come wearing blonde hair and blue eyes!

I hope to be sharing with you all more often in the new year…but….
… until next time…Happy Sharing!

I am sending BIG hugs to you all! Thanks for the warm wishes and for so many wonderful years of Blogging. Tootsie Time has always been very important to me, and I have not changed that one bit. I am hoping that slow and steady will get me ahead of things in my company, and that this will give me more time to play with paint in the new year! (fingers crossed)
And to those who send me emails to my inbox of concern, I thank you.
As for the questions as to contact with the "person" in question...I can honestly say that other than hearing these ridiculous rumors from their family, friends and inlaws, no attempt to contact has been made by anyone involved. Fear, shame and ignorance are keeping them they should.
Both my parents and I have taken steps to block emails, and most other avenues of that will keep the excuses and anything else at bay for a while! :)
