Thanks you guys! Mattie is the best friend I have ever had. She is also the one I told you about, who started to study with the Witnesses.
When she asked me if I would take her to the hospital, I was so pissed, because she said none of her children would take her. Her husband would have had I not been able to, but he had to stay home to do his taxes. He has his own business and today was the deadline.
I wanted to make sure I was there in case the blood issue came up. She doesn't believe in the jw belief in blood either but I wanted to make sure I was there just in case any of her witness friends showed up. (not one did).
We kept a sense of humor through it all. She told me to lock her purse in the trunk of my car. She said she didn't want to bring it in with her because she had $5,000 inside. I jokingly asked her.(Do you have any credit cards?) She said yes, one was a bank card with 12,000 in the bank, the other had a larger limit. I laughed and said hmmmmmmmmm, you know, minor surgery sometimes turns major. If anything happens to you, want me to spend the money so the kids will not get it? I said sure! Now I can buy my motorcycle. We had a good laugh and thank God everything turned out for the best so far.
I don't want someone in my life I can live with. I want someone in my life I can't live without.
