"When people show you who they are, believe them." - Maya Angelou

I've heard this quote many times before, but I never fully embraced it until now. Anyone who knows me, knows I will bend over backwards for those closest to me, even though some of those situations I ended up breaking my back. And honestly, I'm tired of being taken for granted. I'm tired of being "expected" to help you out. I've done my part as a friend. If I call you, upset, and your response is, "i'm watching tv let me call you back," then why do I even bother. My grannie always used to tell me my hospitality is my selling point, but at the same time my weakness. How wise the elderly are.

Happy Mother's Day!

I'm proud of myself, for the person I have become. But more importantly I'm proud of the guidance I've received over the years from my mother. Her heart and her wisdom has given me the strength to deal with this over the years, and i couldn't have asked for a better 18 years! No one from my family even called today to so much as to see how I was doing, but that's ok...I'M STILL STANDING TALL! I don't pull the "feel sorry for Amber card." I just keep living life as usual, and keep thanking God for all the blessings I continue to receive! my mother (who's probably correcting God's english haha), HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
