I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

Good Christian ~ A Christmas Story (and a true one at that)
One of the reasons I follow the Spiritual path that I follow is because I had SO many so-called "Good Christians" screw me over without remorse or hesitation. Now, I never stopped believing that they exist...REAL "Good Christians" and my faith was rewarded. I ran into an actual one today. In word and deed.
Now, here is the background story:
The other day my dryer went kaput. Elaine mentioned it might be something simple like a belt. SO this morning I awoke to Robbin's Christmas present parked out back...Rob home.
So, Rob decided to check out the dryer and manages to cut the power to the whole house. oookkkaaayyy...except we find two outlets that still have power, so we plug the fridge into one of them. Our water pump is battery powered so we always have water (not to mention we have an artesian well out front). And I cook with propane so that is also something I never have to worry about.
Anyway, after a bit of trying to figure out the power problem, I call a friend and ask him if he knows of any local electrician. Now, remember, this is Christmas Eve, so any electrician is going to charge through the nose, but what else can we do?
Anywhoo....Tony calls back and sez to call this guy Hank (coincidentally, my Father's name). I do. He comes out. He fixes the problem. And he looked totally blank when Rob asked him how much do I owe you? He finally said, well, you can give me $5 for gas. Rob (of course) doesn't have any cash on him, neither did I, so off to the bank they go. Rob gave him $20 and he lit up like a Christmas tree and said "Now I can buy a gift for my Mom!" (now mind you this guy is MY age). Now for the Christian part...I know he is one and attends the cute little Church where they did Rita's memorial service. He talked about it and told us we should go and how they are truly Spiritual, not Catholic, not Protestant/Methodist/You-Name-It. Just Spiritual. Told Robbin he needs to go so HE can ALSO get to know "Our Lord Jesus Christ" I assured him Robbin has his Spirituality well under control.
Now, I will tell you I *do* know several REAL "Good Christians" online (Kate? Marianne?) but very few, if ANY, in "real" life. This guy is my Christmas Miracle. A total stranger, only bound by a single common thread (Tony) and yet he treated me like a long-lost sister. He would have happily walked away without a dime in payment, because we were in need of something he could provide. SO...I tip my (pointy black) hat to this one, honest, for real...True Christian. Amen.

Robbin is an awesome person. He is a straight A student, is virtual-schooled, even taking Chinese and Photography as electives! We are now living on what will be our own land someday, in a small place, but it is a double lot so there is actually quite a bit of land. It is a single-wide mobile home, small but cozy. There is a carport and much of our living takes place out there. I have my kitties here, Momma kitty came into hear as soon as we moved and found herself a fella, so she's preggers again. The daddy is either ginger/white or ginger/tabby (there were two of them). We moved here almost 2 months ago. The place we were living was much bigger, but was also very old (this place is MUCH newer and in way better condition). The old place had been virtually abandoned for 30 years so there was a lot going wrong with it, like the floors...they kept getting soft spots and even holes so maneuvering around in my chair was sometimes like maneuvering a minefield. Here, well...it is too small for the chair so it stays out in the carport. That was I can use it to go around the neighborhood if I want.
Rob is ok, still doing his healing work and readings. Right now he is out of town, and I am hoping he can get back by Robbin's Birthday. I know he'd hate to miss it and won't if he can help it. We are on good terms now. Yes, that took some doing, and (on my part mostly, and on Robbin's part hugely) a lot of forgiving (not forgetting, forgiving). Neither of us could live with all that anger. It would turn to illness, so we HAD to release it, and for the most part, we have. I still have to have the TV on all night if I am to get any sleep. If I turn it off I start to think and that inevitably leads to me getting angry again so I pre-program it and leave it on. The other night I was able to turn it off for a few hours so I guess that is getting "better". When I DID turn it off I was rewarded. From the window I can see the night sky. where we are there is very little light pollution, so when the TV went off the stars came out to my vision. Orion was right out the window. I could have reached out and touched it! And you might remember Orion is Robbin's middle name. Cool, eh?
I will not promise to write more often, don't want to make promises...but I will try.
In case you haven't figured out the post name it is Out-of-Body-Experience Wan Kenobe (The O.B.E. as in Obe...got it?) (I just had to 'splain it to Robbin so I figured just in case...)....

Anyway, when they were old enough I found homes for 3 of them, and when they went back up N. Mike took the other two. HE has already found a home for one of them. I kept the mamma, so I can have her fixed. Rob was going to just drop her off at a farm, where she would have spent her short life spitting out kittens. I mean, her *first* litter, at under a year of age, and she has FIVE? She is a very sweet, tiny little soft calico.
While her was here Mike spent a few weeks visiting his sister in Tampa, while he was there he did me the HUGE favor of going to the funeral home and getting my sister's ashes. Rob had promised and promised he would do it, then when there was an actual opportunity to DO it, he said "I'm not doing it, I am done with this!" Nice. What if it was HIS sister? She had been there for over a year as it is..and he would have just let her stay there forever. Nice. thanks. So Mike got her for me, and now I have all three (mom and two sisters), need to figure out how to spread them on the water somewhere.
The other day my PC blew up, I am having to share Robbin's with him. When my SSI comes in next month I will get mine looked at, hopefully it can be saved, if not, well, hopefully something will sell on eBay and I can replace it. After all, it IS almost 7 years old and I spend probably 12-14 hours a day on it, poor thing doesn't owe me anything lol...I was playing something when the screen went blank and there was smoke coming out of the back...not a good sign, methinks...
Robbin is terrific, getting all A's and B's in school. Loves to ride his bike when he can, of course at this time of the year here in Florida it is way too hot, but soon it will be fall and he will be able to go out daily again.
