Color Me Faery

Any of you that know me, know that I talk a lot about a certain series of books called the "Southern Vampire Series" or the "Sookie Stackhouse" novels by Charlaine Harris.  Well, in these books it talks about faeries and certain facts about this race.  One of these facts is that they physically and emotionally feel better when they are around each other as opposed to alone.  Why am I talking about this?  Because this week I was invited to a barbeque at my brother-in-law's, fiance's, daughter's house.  Wow, that was a mouthful.  What it boils down to is Mike's brother and his fiance are coming to Georgia for the weekend to visit her family and invited me over.  I am positively giddy about getting to see them and the reason relates to the faery theory.  I think that it's cathartic to be around Mike's family when he's gone.  To be around someone who shares the same blood and was cut from the same cloth as my husband is the next best thing to being with him.  It's almost healing in a way to know that I can be near Mike's brother, who is just an older version of Mike.  Now, before I start getting "concerned" phone calls, I don't mean be near him in a creepy, stalker way.  But it's almost like my cosmic physical connection to Mike while he's so far away.  It sounds like I'm really grasping at straws, and maybe I am, but I crave so badly to be near him and for the sake of my sanity, a lot of times I bury those feelings because it's easier than trying to deal with the saturation of lonliness all the time.  So there it is.  Some of you may think I'm crazy, but that's ok.  It makes sense in my mind!  I will enjoy the barbeque and get my "fix" of Hayden.  :)  I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day!

  1. I am glad to share Terry with you and he is always happy to be of any assistance he can be while Mike is away. Why you could even come to Tulsa if you like to visit if that would help. I know what you mean about the Faery complex and I am so glad you came to visit us on Saturday at Melanie's house. Hope it helped...
