    Default Being Different!

    If you are like me you will find you dont fit in the same way as others fit in. You say tings out of touch with what is expected. This is OK as God made us all and we are His.
    It does not matter if one is different. Just one needs to protect oneself from hurts when one is not understood.

    So if you feel a bit different, all is OK. Just be yourself and do your thing, as you are responsible to God and not others. So smile and let yourself be you, just as God intends.

    I think one runs into a lot of this when they are trying to serve the Lord.

    I'm not different. I'm absolutely normal for a 61 year old woman! See?

    BTW, in the lower left hand corner are tiny little tea cups. Before this picture was taken, my stuffed animals were having a garden tea party. lol
    Whoops correction. Not teacups. Perrogies. We were going to eat a Polish meal afterward. lol

    This is a difficult thread to identify with, as I am seldom the least bit controversial in my posting.

    I have always been odd and unique and different in so many ways even though I tried to fit in in my youth I never could I was just not normal, and now I embrace my weirdness besides who wants to be normal? Anyone can be normal and fit in but it's a cool rebel to be weird and not follow the crowd

    It's your story Willie, and you can tell it any way you want to ;-)
    Some days, I feel like removing the SIM from my phone, breaking it in pieces, tossing the phone in a wood chipper, grabbing my bug-out bag, leave everyone without saying a word, and just going ghost for the rest of my life.

    The truth should never get in the way of a good story.

    Heh, comparing me to the others in my class is virtually the same as comparing gas stations to roast turkeys. The two have absolutely nothing in common...

    Does Pokemon have a love interest? I honestly assumed there would be a Pokemon on the top of the cake, but I don't know if there is a suitable suitor for him/her/it?

    My dream wedding was to have it in the Grand Cavern -- a cave in Central VA. We'd both wear jeans. (Back in the days when I did NOT wear overalls.) The flaw came along because we opted for a small wedding, and inviting all the folks in our NJ church to a rinky dink town in VA, and then have all my family and his family drive six hours, didn't seem kind. Worse yet, extended family lived nearby, so it would be rude not to have them go when it was happening in their neck of the woods.

    Next wedding, (John promised we could renew our vows on our 50 anniversary, and I'm holding him to it, I just want to go down to the park with him and the stuffies and renew it with them.

    So, who is the werido around here anyway? Willie, for not being weird?
