Month: February 2011 It’s not our little secret.

When I was eleven years old I was a young eleven.  Certainly by today’s standards, I was a very young eleven.   I was a compliant eleven — just the kind of girl who wanted to please everyone.   I was just the kind of girl who wanted everything to work out well — to be happy — to be a family.   Just the kind of girl one could trust to keep a secret. Initially (and I believe this is most often the case with sexuallyabused girls) I didn’t grasp or understand what was really happening, nor that it was completely and absolutely inappropriate behaviour. So, when I was praised for being Daddy’s good little girl and then was told that these things would be our little secret. I obeyed.  Because that’s what I did — that’s the kind of girl I was: obedient.  Daddy’s good little girl.  [This Daddy continue reading

Month: February 2011 Why Tell?

That’s a question I asked myself for a long time.  After I told my mother about my father sexuallyabusing me, it would be a long time before I would talk about it again.  I didn’t say, it would be a long time before I thought about it again — just a long time before I would talk about it again.  And there would be good reason for that — or so I thought.  I was sort of under the delusion that if I talked about it one of two things would happen: I would be labeled _____ (fill in the blank with any number of negative or pejorative comments), or it would, simply by bringing it up, happen again. So, though always ignored, why attempt to contact him over the years?  Why write and send him a letter (nearly five years ago), now.   And why post it online when continue reading

Month: February 2011 CSA = Tell Someone

It’s a tough topic – a tough thing to deal with, a tough thing to talk about.  And that’s why it isn’t. talked. about.  It’s also not talked about because of fear — a deep seated fear of reprisal.  It is deep and it is real. I don’t talk about a lot of things specifically here on the blog… you know — it’s risky to share stuff.  Once you publicly share stuff, you run the risk of being pegged as something.  You know how you say to someone: I love teddybears and suddenly, every gift you receive from then on is a teddybear something.   Or, you share, you were once addicted to meth and you’re forever a meth-head.   Or, you share you battle depression… and, well,  you get the picture. Well, it’s like that with sexualabuse.   You talk about it and suddenly that’s all you’re about — one note sally.  continue reading

Month: February 2011 the battle to expose corruption

The story – the battle – the man – taking on the “biggest organized crime syndicate in the country.” Phill Kline’s courageous battle to expose and take down Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood (an oxymoron if I ever heard one!)  is attempting to destroy this innocent man.  It’s attempting to do to this man what it does to millions of innocent children every year. Go to the site and read… Go to the site and listen to the February 15th webcast.  Honestly, if you’ve not been reading about the heinous practices of planned parenthood, you will be shocked. It’s worth the time you’ll spend listening.  Exposing the extreme corruption of Planned Parenthood is becoming more and more of a a risk to the man, his family and his livelihood. Planned Parenthood is not about parenthood any more than abortion is about reproductive rights. In thinking about it, I never really knew continue reading

Month: February 2011 And then… the Truth will come

Today’s mess news:  Eyes on Wisconsin… then keep ’em open toward DC, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, California — and Idaho.   Just keep watching… this looks to be the groundswell of a massive eruption, an avalanche of chaos and destruction.   Omy, it’s just so incredible to be alive during this time in history. I frequently find myself  marveling:  the whole world’s gone mad.  It’s all around us —  just open today’s paper, click on whatever news media you favour or whatever social media you frequent. The words, the sounds, the grumbling…  like the rumbling of the land before a volcanic eruption.  The land is surely rumbling today… emotions are surely erupting.  And it’s getting louder… Mobs telling lies and mobs of people believing them — these are creating societal knee jerk reactions at rapid-fire speed, with mob mentality reigning the day.   Consider the oldest enticement of man: “Yea, hath God said , continue reading

Month: February 2011 Be ye not troubled

Reading today in the Word… Over a cup of coffee with you. Mark 13 7  And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. 9  But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10  And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11  But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever continue reading
