Those who read my “bit of a rant” which was taken off shortly after being put on might want to know it worked. Family members are obviously checking very often what I post – nice people! If truth upsets and if they recognise themselves so be it. Good to know that those who returned my mail, Don’s DVD, a birthday care etc – with it marked :” refused” to show their outrage (at what??) publicly, are not adverse to sneaking about as they do. For their information the rant was put on for this exact purpose and I stand by it as truth.

Relationships not based on honesty are not relationships worth having. There has been dishonesty from one family member for far too long and it has poisoned our family. She smells of roses to some... who don't care about the truth.I smell of roses to those who love me and thats what matters. I have acted as Don would have expected and I know I would have his full support and that of my adult daughters who know the whole. I can also know that should I die tomorrow - I have acted properly. That is important.

Amen! Therese, you are strong (stronger than you think) and dedicated and Hell, I would do the very same thing as you if it was my husband or one of my children..stand up for what is right and decent and damned the bastards who did what they did, why SHOULD they get away with it!!!!????
Ahhh, back again after a sniff of lavender to calm me down...anyway, where was I, oh yeah.... a saying such as "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Well, that is apt here, and I abide by it with people who can't be straight, including family!
Don't change Therese.. you are a diamond of a woman :)

I agree. Some of those family members have thorns stuck in their noses.

I agree with the honesty in friendships. You know in your heart that you've acted properly and that's what matters.

Take care:-)

Cazzie - thanks for this. Some people live on such a different planet - a planet where the worst things that seem to happen are the least worst things to worry about - something you as a nurse would often see.

Rosemary - what a shame they don't inhale.

Anne thank you - will catch up after my sister leaves on Sunday
