One of those people

You know who I am talking about, the ones that buy a birthday cake with the food stamps. How dare they buy a birthday cake with foodstamps, that supposed to be for food!

I have heard the comments, people living off the system just popping out babies so the government can support them. And I will be honest, the thoughts crossed my mind a time or two in the past.

Now, thats me. Thats me standing in line for assistance, spending government money on a birthday cake so my son will be able to have some sense of normalcy.

I didnt plan it this way, I didnt plan on my husband leaving me when my baby girl wasnt even 3 months old and my son not even of the age of four.

How many people have I judged in the past when I didnt even know their story. How many other moms are suddenly left single, blindsided at best.

Why me? I was on top of the world, I loved my babies and my husband.

This wasnt in the plans, this isnt what I was promised.

well, i have searched for words and this is what i have.

juli i love you and it breaks my heart that you having to go through this. i know we aren’t close now, but we use to be. [remember when you were my friend even though i use to be friends with stuffy =)] i hope you remember telling me that and it makes you smile. i’m not sure why we drifted apart [probably my fault =( ] but if you ever need a set of fresh ears i am all yours!!

oh and please don’t be hard on yourself. we are all quick to judge sometimes. we are human and are not without fault.

oh yeah btw did you recognize the security officer at dhs? its poppy. do you remember him?

Well, if I know anyone strong enough to rise above this, that would be you! Speaking from experience on the other side of the track (ME being the one leaving) it is still extremely unnerving, trying, and many times frustrating but despite it all you will come out of this stronger, closer to your children, more secure than you could possibly imagine. I am now 2 years + post leaving my exhusband. I am making the most out of what life gives me and I can tell you it WILL get better. Keep your head up high and know there are many people out there who will be right there to support you. I know we don’t keep in contact much because of chaotic lives and whatever else comes in the way but know I am thinking about you constantly and will do whatever I can to help you out. Please let me know if there is anything…

Man I hate this for you!!! I just hate it!!! All I know is that life is so fast and one minute you may be down and out and the next your right back on top of the world! I hope that you dont stay down too long! Dont worry about what others may think! I hope you bought a damn good birthday cake! 🙂 PS Call me before you get an attorney! 🙂
