Rain and crappy days

I went and saw a movie tonight with my sisters and Mom.

The movie was Eat, Pray, Love.

I left the movie feeling more inspired than I have in a while...

Inspired to do better with my life, to serve others, to find myself again.

I came home all happy and excited to see Boyfriend

Checked my email...and my balloon of happiness got popped in about 5 seconds.

I won't go into a lot of details...I got an email from a friend...(actually, the same Science geek that I told you about yesterday) telling me that he was angry with my family for certain reasons and that's why he hasn't responded to any of my calls or txts.

And it was just a harsh reminder of how misconstrued people's thoughts can be.

We hear something and assume something and jump to conclusions and end up angry.

We all do it...I've done it many times. I'm trying to do better...I'm trying to not jump to conclusions, but it's hard.

And tonight this friend has reminded me that it still happens...and that relationships, in any form, are very fragile and no matter how strong you think said relationships are, no matter how close you think you are, it's amazing how quickly they can unravel.

Someone makes a comment to said friend, said friend assumes and jumps to conclusions...and there he is faced with two roads. Road 1: Do I trust in my friend and in the years of friendship we've had? Road 2: Do I jump to conclusions and assume the worst?

It's amazing how one little decision in life can change something so drastically.

I'm trying not to let it affect me...I'm trying to just be at peace with my part of the relationship and know that I did what I could...

But tonight, it's hard.

This isn't even what I was going to blog about tonight...I had fun pictures to show you.

I guess I could look back on the good things that happened today...

It rained:

Before the rain:

I love when the sky looks like that...

I didn't even get to finish my watering all the way because it started pouring on me.

And believe me.

It poured.

See all the water on the grass? Yeah...

After being outside for maybe...30 seconds tops, running back and forth from the car to the building.

It was fun.

Okay. I tried to find something upbeat. I'm going to bed now. My head is killing me.

Dear Baby Sister,

I am so sorry that this geek is an actual jerk. I am not going to tell you that you will find many friends other than him. I am not going to tell you that you have such a large, sweet family and boyfriend to fall back on. I know how much effort, love, trust, care and hope one puts into any relationship.

You're a very sweet, caring person, Amanda. This man and the poison ivy friend of his are people who do not have the love that you do, in their hearts. I am not saying they are bad people. They are just immature, incapable of realizing the hurt they can cause.

I'd love to respond to that email myself, right away. You, don't bother. Don't call. Don't message. He'll realize how CRUDE he has been, in a while/ maybe in a few light years depending on how much brain he has left.

UNDERSTAND THIS: Maybe he's going through HORMONAL trouble, you never know. ;) ;)

I want to watch Eat Pray Love too! I will soon and I'll be sure to tell you what I thought.

Those pictures are GORGEOUS! I love the skies! You have quite an art there!

Hope you wake up nice and fresh and EAT. Use one of my recipes... you'll at least find something VALID to cry about!

Praying for you and hugging you tight.

p.s. Boyfriend- do something.

Some people are such turds. I do not understand not talking things through, asking question, finding out the real reason for something instead of just being mad. It's dumb and I am sorry he hurt your feelings. You do not deserve it.
Try and have a great day today. It's FRIDAY!!!! Thank goodness, it's time for the week to end and the weekend to begin.
Try not to let it bother you to much but that is almost impossible, I know so just let it ride for now and ignore him and maybe he'll decide that even though he felt wronged that he's done some wrong too and it's time to chatter.
Take care my dear and God Bless you and your family, boyfriend included of course!! :o)

First of all, you are the cutest thing ever. Loved the picture of you in your hoodie. And that storm yesterday was a doosey. Our parking lot at work was flooded where the customers pull up to the docks clear around to where we all park. Yikers

That friend is a piece of class. He should have just emailed you or texted you, or better yet, called you and told you what was bothering him. But that is why, when you look back at things, things didn't progress in his direction.

I'm glad you have boyfriend. He is a jewel. (like a diamond jewels, ok boyfriend, wink, wink)

Hey! Checking on you...

SO sorry you are having people trouble. Yikes. Glad you got out in the rain and let it wash some of the troubles off!

Thinking of you!

You look absolutely adorable, even all rainy. Love your stormy sky pictures ... just beautiful. If you are the best friend you can be, there's nothing else you can do. Everybody has their own crap to work out and it sounds like he has a little extra right now. Put your happy face on, girlfriend! I saw Eat Pray Love this week, too. I think I liked the book a little better than the movie. Julia Roberts, as usual, did a wonderful job, but it seemed like as long as it was, it was a little disjointed in detail.I kept thinking, if I hadn't read the book, I wouldn't understand what just happened.

@ jayaycee - I'm trying. Happy face is really trying. :)
I've never read the book...I had honestly never even heard of it till the movie came out. But I do want to read the book now.
