E-M-B-A-R-R-A-S-S-M-E-N-T 101

I hope and pray that this is the last

last one ever have to write on the subject.

mere fact that I’m a human being,

makes it highly unlikely

that I will ever happen.

Knowing myself

I have had to open wide,

wide enough to allow,

insertion of  one of my size nines

i’ll travel this path again

mortification 101

Yes it is the awful,

awful screw up

As a blogger,

it’s extremely embarrassing

I imagine

it is one of the most grevous errors one could make .

To receive a blogging nomination,

and thank (and post) to my nominator

only to realize

after the fact

that I had thanked

the wrong person!!!

Yes dear followers

I have egg on my face


I feel covered from head to toe.

So it is with much EMBARRASSMENT

that I must own up to my mistake,

beg for forgiveness

and thank the my nominator properly.

So I offer







to my nomInator

for the Leibster Award ,


She is a young woman,

who grew up in Africa,

in a family with dysfunction

specifically a narcissistic mother,

or Mum as she would say.

her writing speaks of daily struggles

growing up in such an environment

I found her blog as I struggle

to help my own adult children

deal with the legacy handed down

generation to generation


She states she is no expert

has no formal training in

personality disorders and

their behaviors.

But I feel her writing speaks volumes

of what growing up with narcissism

in one’s family can be like.

First hand experience,

the need to understand and

years of exposure can make

anyone an unwilling expert.

I applaud her for speaking up against

family situations and domestic violence.

It doesn’t always manifest as most think.

So I ask you to assist me

in my plea for forgiveness

and go and check out

her blog and tell her chely sent you.

    What a sweet post. This is exactly the kind of thing I can well imagine myself doing, lost in the labyrinth of the blog world, getting confused; who is who? who did what? I’m sure all bloggers could understand and forgive your little mistake, for that’s all it was…a wee, little mistake. And yes, I’ll check out this amazing young woman’s blog as you suggest. She sounds incredible – all who survive abuse are incredible; you included. Love and light, Melinda

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I have to admit I am a bit behind on following up on comments. Yes keeping up with blogging along with the rest of life (not to mention any problems dealing with) and there are times things fall thru the cracks in my sidewalk. I’m glad to know that you think my post will garner me forgiveness (fyi-successful) in my faux paus. Yeah just when you think you’ve got this rat race figured out the damn rats get even faster. hugs to you-chely
