    Recurring

    I have a recurring dream. I've had it since I was twelve years of age. I 'm standing outside of the trailer we lived in then in Missouri. The ground is rocky and sharp and I'm standing in my pjs looking out into the woods at night. Everyone is asleep and the night is dark and...

    I Think I Think Too Much

    I think, sometimes, I say too much. I shouldn't try to fix everything all the time. I don't have all the answers, but sometimes I just want to help so badly that I think I stick my nose where I shouldn't. I also am afraid that I ......disappoint people. I think too much about...

    I Will

    I am theredlady. I am who I am and nothing more or less. I am not particularly wise or knowledgeable. I feel inadequate and shy and not quite sure of myself. So here someone has found me in my shell and thought I need to come out more.I am trying. I have a lot of "stuff" still to...

    Random Acts Of Kindness

    I deleted my original story for this group in my great purge, and this is one of the few that I truly regret having deleted. Since meeting theredlady during the great spelling debate, I've come to know her even better, and I am "oh so glad" she is indeed, coming out of her shell...

    There is only one of me. I can't do it all. Certainly not alone. I feel alone. At this moment I am alone and feeling sorry for myself and there is nothing any one can do, because here I sit. This is my story tonight, this night. Tomorrow may be different, but tonight, I am...

    I love a good mixed drink. I don't care for straight whiskey or tequila or beer, but I do love a mixed drink.... 7n7, fuzzy navels, margaritas... there is a list. I gave it up though when my husband died. I was afraid. I was afraid of dying in a glass of liquor while my kids...

    I had so much fun with the snow we had. If you lived where I do, you might understand more. We NEVER get snow here. Oh, we've gotten dribbles and flurries that usually melt as soon as it touches ground. It never accumulates. A couple of rare occasions when we got an inch or two...

    Who am I? Perhaps not the best place to ask this question of myself. This group was made to make me come out of my shell, not to justify it. Who am I? I am who you see not....... I am me. Pure and simple. The words I write are who I am. My thoughts and feelings, my dreams and...

    I Reserve Judgement

    I try my best not to judge people. I grew up being judged by adults and peers because of the way I dressed, my social status, my looks, and my personality. People rarely took time to know me. They didn't realize that the reason I was so reserved and shy was because I'd spent my...
