A Sad Story
This post is decidedly different from my usual kind but this blog is about me and my life so... this story has been on my mind all day. I will share it with you.
This morning my DH and I went to a few garage sales before heading to the mall. The first one we went to was all Christmas stuff. Lots of Christmas stuff. I got talking with the woman whose gs it was and she told me that her husband had complained and griped for 40 years because she celebrated Christmas. Actually, she said he hated any kind of "fuss" made. No Easter "fuss", no birthday "fuss". She said she was so tired of his negativity that she was giving up. I didn't quite know how to respond. I told her how sorry I was. I felt like saying a lot more about her miserable spouse but it wasn't my place to do so.
It's so hard to understand why some people are the way they are, isn't it? They deprive themselves and those around them of all joy by being miserable.
I hope I haven't depressed you too badly by sharing this. I almost feel I should delete this post.
