Hello Mr. Finger

videoRiddick hurt himself at work, something about a fingernail being ripped off by an errant screw and than I blacked out.

He was trying to sleep and I was in that annoying place I go to when I'm so tired I can't sleep and I get stupid silly.

At the start of the clip he is ignoring me. So I do the most adult thing I can to get his attention. I bit his armpit.

Watch and learn

My family

Ironman, Riddick, and Pinkie at their finest, not posing just existing. I love them all very much.

My three favorite men. Python, Papadon, and Riddick. I love them all and am grateful for each one of them.

Father's day isn't as easy now that my sweet Daddy is gone, but as long as I carry him in my heart he is with me.

Forgiveness ala Elizabeth Smart

Surprisingly so "People" magazine had a nice small article on Elizabeth Smart and her forgiveness of the two monsters that kidnapped her. I'm going to paraphrase, although it is very close to a quote.

Elizabeth said that she has forgiven him but that doesn't mean she's going to hang out with him or write him supporting letters.

I love this statement. Her description of forgiveness is right on. So many people confuse forgiveness with acceptance, they are very different things.

I have forgiven the whore monger that I was married to. That doesn't mean I accept that there was any excuse for his actions, nor does it mean that I want him anywhere in my life. My forgiveness of his hurtful actions mean that he isn't allowed to harm me anymore with the choices he made.

It's like putting a computer virus in a "quarantine". It's away from your OS, it can't trip up your PC, but it's never allowed back into the fold.

Don't look down at someone because they haven't outwardly embraced an individual that hurt them, that doesn't mean they haven't done the internal work to forgive them, it just means the door is shut.

Kyron

Many days I pray for Kyron Horman. I should pray for him everyday, but I forget, a poor excuse but a true one.

I don't know where he is, I don't know if he is alive, I only know that his family is in a world of pain that I cannot fathom. They are getting up and going through their days, waiting and hoping, but hoping for one answer, while knowing the answer may be painful.

I also don't know if Terri Horman had anything to do with her step-son's disappearance. That is unthinkable for someone like me, a step-parent, that she would harm a child put in her care and life by marriage.

My own thought, if Terri did attempt to hire someone to kill her husband did she inadvertently allow a killer into her life, did she start the fall of dominoes that led to that sweet little boy being taken. I don't know.

I pray for you Kyron, your parents, and siblings, and all those that love you. And I pray for Terri, please, tell the truth.

Truth is the only thing that will set you fee.
