I’m skeptical often of people who put accusations of abuse and such into so called memoirs etc. that they’re writing for profit. Especially if they NEVER made the claims until they were trying to drum up interest in said books.
It’s a well known, albeit unfortunate fact that in our society, scandal sells.
Also, claiming victimhood of some form or another is en vogue these days, unfortunately. People who claim victimhood for attention or profit do a disservice to people who’ve actually been abused, and they ruin lives and legacies w/their false accusations as well, sometimes irreparably.
It’s also interesting to me how many times, such accusations are made after the accused has died, and can’t challenge (or at least answer) such charges. In such cases, it’s the family of the accused that suffers the fallout.
I just read about an investigative journalist being stabbed to death outside his home in Las Vegas.
His name was Jeff German.
According to what I read, the perpetrator is still being pursued. I didn’t know anything about German prior to the crime, but my hope is that the circumstances of his death aren’t the main thing he’s remembered for.
He was actually, (according to further reading) quite a skilled individual in his field. I do hope his family gets swift justice.
On it’s own, a single small gig won’t give you the stability financially that you need and deserve. It’s a shame how many people struggle financially, it really ought not be that way. I have always viewed money as a tool, not something we should become Mastered by.
The question then, is how to gain stability & freedom, one way is be creative, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try out a multitude of different things, it’s wise to always have a plan B to your plan B, as the saying goes.
Lately, I have been trying out a series of receipt apps, on their own (individually) I know they won’t necessarily amount to much, but since I am trying several in tandem with each other, the collective is bound to add up. I still don’t expect to literally make a fortune w/them alone, but they will supplement my other endeavors at least.
Good morning again, you all.
Had a great family outing/date night with my wife yesterday.
I don’t care how long a couple has been married, it’s important to keep the fire raging, as the saying goes. Many people START with romancing their spouse, when things are brand new, and they let it wane over time.
They allow themselves to start seeing things as a chore w/their spouse rather than there being the deep and abiding connection and Love there should be.
I’m not saying marriage is all sunshine and unicorns 24/7, but there is no reason for marriage to become stale either. It’s a choice what we make a priority, and if your spouse ISN’T high priority, why be married at all? Just worth thinking about.
Good morning, Dear Ones.
Punching the keys early because later I’ll be hanging out with my family. My son is off from school through the weekend, so glad for that.
Presently, I’m watching a movie, might share notes on it later at my review blog, haven’t made a decision.
In other notes, I got to talk with my mother briefly yesterday, which was good, except she’s still grieving my grandma’s death, obviously. We’re all dealing, some of us better than others.
One way I’m dealing is simply by holding tighter to the Loved ones I have left. That’s kind of what today is about, trying to get in more quality time with them.
My mother said she woke up from a nap yesterday and reflexively looked for my grandma, before she was fully awake.
Then it registered (again) that my grand is dead. My heart breaks for my own loss, but also for hers, they were very close.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I do take comfort that my grand knows the Lord. Anyway, I’ll go ahead and wrap this up before it becomes novel length. Thanks for reading, and much Love.
It’s literally 2 a.m. here and I can’t sleep. Watching Forensic Files at present. Also in quite a bit of physical pain, I don’t know if I pulled a muscle or what.
Anyway, my son has school in a few hours, I found out via a paper sent home with him that apparently he won’t be receiving homework from the district this year. I don’t know what prompted that decision on their part.
He’s been doing well as far as we know in class, getting along with his teachers and classmates and such. I’m hoping that remains the case all year.
My grandma B is on her way out, Dr. gave her 48 hours at their best estimate. It hit me pretty hard, I’ll confess, but she’s had a great life overall (especially in later years until her decline) and my grandpa Donald (her husband) passed a few years back which I know was rough on her.
To my knowledge, both of them know the Lord, so I’m comforted in that knowledge. I know the here and now is not all there is.
I’ll miss her, and life here without her won’t be the same, but at least her struggles with the ailments she dealt with in this life will be over.
Good morning friends.
Right now, I’m watching a documentary about tech, warfare, and space. It’s pretty interesting so far. In other notes, I have a few new projects I’ll be bringing to this blog shortly.
Also, on a more personal/family note, my son’s first day of school went great. He doesn’t have homework as of yet since he’s still acclimating, but I’m expecting that’ll change soon enough.
I’m going to strive to be more involved with him this school year, looking forward to seeing his knowledge expand and helping him in that regard.
Anyway, that’s a fair amount for early morning notes. Back soon, much Love and have a beautiful, blessed day all.
Entitled children with delusions of grandeur who never receive correction, or who are taught to dismiss it, grow up to be disrespectful, narcissistic, lawless adults, and we all suffer the fallout.
