It doesn't take much to thank someone for what they have done for you.
When they refuse that simple respect, it is gone forever.
Burned bridges are not rebuilt.

A quote from my friend Mickey truer words.

Food for thought......Hemingway once said ...'The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.'....let me take a moment to express my thoughts on this very complicated subject.. ....You can put so much love into a relationship, marriage or even family members and still fall into this terrible stigma...You get treated the way you teach people to treat you...Once they know that they can treat you badly, and even disrespect you and yet still get kindness and affection in return, they will use this against you as long as you let them...If you are being wronged and abused by anyone, it is time to make some changes in your life...Once you get away from this type of treatment, after some time , you will look back and not even believe that you let yourself be treated that way...There are lots of cruel narcissistic people in this world that are self centered and very selfish, and only out for themselves ,and they will take advantage of you until you have nothing left...If you are in this situation away as fast as you can and don't look back, because no matter how hard you try and how much you want to believe in them...they will NEVER ever change.....

January 7, 1974

Today marks the 40th anniversary of my move to New Mexico.

My then husband and I drove a ’67 Chevy Impala and a ’62 Volkswagon w/sun roof into Santa Fe in the early evening.  He carried the plants in the VW and I drove the kids and cats.

From the minute we left Texas, it was difficult, weather-wise.  We experienced horrible winds from Dallas to BigSpring, then rain and tornado warnings to Lubbock.  We spent that night with my grandmother.  It was a brief respite, however.

The next morning we were delayed a bit by sleet and high winds, but we managed to leave Texas shortly after an early lunch.

The snow began within the first hour of driving.  It was blinding.  

My brakes gave out in Santa Rosa and I had to use the emergency brake to stop.  We were delayed again with the repairs….. and then we drove on in the snow, sleet, rain, wind and more snow.

My husband finally pulled over and put the chains on the Chevy on the side of the highway.  Huge semi-trucks were flying by us!  He was so cold; we in our Texas coats, laughable now.

We started up again and drove through more snow.  Right before the turn off to Old Santa Fe Trail, my husband pulled over to the side of the road, again.  He walked over to me and said, “Rosebud (the name of our VW) has died.  She can’t make it”.

I screamed, “Tell Rosebud we are almost home and to get going!” and he got in the car and it started right up!  We drove into town in the most snow I think I have ever seen.

But we made it!

We slept that night on the floor of a house we’d rented a month before, with some blankets because our furnishings/belongings were stuck somewhere in Texas, in the snow.  I will never forget the smell of pi├▒on wood burning in fireplaces, all over town.  The night sky was pink and the snow came down in silence.  

I was home.
