It is three in the morning and I cannot sleep. We had a wonderful busy weekend with family and friends and this is a happy tiredness.
My daughter was here for the weekend and my sil, her daughter and grandson were also here. Kari, the daughter brought her boyfriend and I think he is nicer and handsomer then the on who she was living with. She is a good, sweet person and deserved better then him. I have a picture here of her dressed as a Pirates wench for halloween and when you see it, you will see a lovely young woman who did not deserve an abusive man in her life. I don't think it was physical but from what I witnessed here one time it was verbal. She deserved better.
Why do women stay with men who abuse them? I have an inkling as I was with and abusive man at one time. I almost lost the use of my right hand when he was stabbing at me and I put my hand up to stop him and it went into my hand and the dr. said I just missed a nerve. I left him after that. I was lucky I had family to help me. Had I stayed he might have killed me.
I guess it is fear that causes some women to stay in such relationships. I had a friend that stayed in one for 20 years before he left her for another woman. My mom stayed in one for years because she said she had no one to turn to. She finally had me to help her by telling her sister about the beatings and such and we both encouraged her to leave.
Well, I am glad Kari is happy now with a new guy and he seems very nice. I will put her picture in another post as I am starting to get sleepy now...Good night all.
