Well, here I am coming to you again for your…
Hello Denise, Well, here I am...
Well, here I am coming to you again for your guidance, an opinion. Bob called me on Saturday which really surprised me. He asked to go to dinner or lunch sometime, we made plans and had Dinner Sunday. We had a nice dinner and I was left pretty much scratching my head after I got home. I can't for the life of my figure this man out. One of my Best Friends was was here when he picked me up, she said she didn't get any good vibes from him. She said he wouldn't even look her in the eye. She said he seemed cold and distant, nothing like the man she pictured me with. Anyway, Please read the email correspondence between Bob and I and let me know what you think, what you think I should do or am I wasting my time? Can your cards tell you anything? Thank you for always being here for me, helping me get through this. We were talking at dinner and I told him I would send him rule # XXXXX You'll have to read from the bottom to top to understand...yes, I knew you would already know that lol
Thank you for your help and much love!
I felt no pressure at all, thanks for the invite and I will likely be there. Maybe your keys are in the driveway at home??

Okay, thanks for checking again :-) I called Red Lobster and no one's turned them in, I left my # XXXXX case someone does. I meant to give you your visor last night when I saw you.
I talked to Wendy at lunch when I called to check on Grandma, I told her you gave me some gift certificates for a turkey or ham. She said to tell you thank you, XXXXX XXXXX nice...she also wanted me to ask you if you were gonna cook it for her too lol I told her I would take care of that :-)
I hope I didn't make you feel uncomfortable inviting you (and Oscar of course) to thanksgiving dinner, you are more than welcome to come if you don't have anything special going on, our family would love to see you. However, please don't feel pressured by my asking.

I looked again in the daylight and didn’t see anything. Maybe you should call Red Lobster and see if anyone turned them in? That’s about the only other place they could be. I barely made it home last night before I fell asleep.

Today has been really busy; most of my morning has been spent in meetings. I just now finally got a break.
I was really hoping my keys were in your truck as I have looked all over for them. I remember picking them up as we walked out the door to go eat, I thought I put them in my purse. I hope they didn’t fall out in the parking lot. Did you look between the door and seat? they may have fallen there when I was getting out.
You say you need to stop trying to find the meaning in life, yes rule # XXXXX would work very well here. lol I don’t believe we can ever fully live life if we are continually looking for the meaning of life. I think that what we’re seeking is the experience of being alive, joy, laughter, people we care about in our lives to share these things with, and to also be there for us when things come up in life that aren’t so funny.
I understand going slow with you. There is no need to rush anything, yes....let's talk.
Hope you’re having a good day!

Thanks for rule #6, that does make sense. I looked for your keys a minute ago, but didn’t see them. It was dark, however, so I’ll look again in the daylight.
As for us, I don’t ever want you to think that I am “stringing you along”, like Garry said. And just like you said below, I love you and I want you to be happy, even if it isn’t with me. I do love you, I think you know that. I just have to stop trying to figure out the meaning of life and remember rule #6. I am my own worst enemy and I can’t seem to get out of the way of happiness. I need you to just go slow with me. Let’s talk, okay?

Good morning Bob :-)
I tired to call you after you left to see if I left my keys in your truck. I have a spare set so I am okay, the keys I can't find has the keys to my Grandmas house and my front door key. If you could take a look I would appreciate it. Thank you for dinner, it was nice seeing and talking with you. I've missed that :-)
Here is Rule # XXXXX as promised. A friend sent it to me and it makes a lot of sense. You might have to read it a couple of times to let it sink in ;-) lol
The Following is an excerpt from Wayne Dyer’s wonderful work The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-Create Your World Your Way. I find keeping this rule in mind; often times keeps me grounded and rooted.
Two prime ministers are sitting in a room discussing affairs of state. Suddenly a man bursts in, apoplectic with fury, shouting and stamping and banging his fist on the desk. The resident prime minister admonishes him: “Peter,” he says, “kindly remember Rule Number 6,” whereupon Peter is instantly restored to complete calm, apologizes, and withdraws. The politicians return to their conversation, only to be interrupted yet again twenty minutes later by a hysterical woman gesticulating wildly, her hair flying. Again the intruder is greeted with the words: “Marie, please remember Rule Number 6.” Complete calm descends once more, and she too withdraws with a bow and an apology. When the scene is repeated for a third time, the visiting prime minister addresses his colleague: “My dear friend, I’ve seen many things in my life, but never anything as remarkable as this. Would you be willing to share with me the secret of Rule Number 6?” “Very simple,” replies the resident prime minister. “Rule Number 6 is ‘Don’t take yourself so damn seriously.’” “Ah,” says his visitor, “that is a fine rule.” After a moment of pondering, he inquires, “And what, may I ask, are the other rules?” “There aren’t any.”
Life really is too short to take it so seriously...in my mind at least. It is about taking things as they come, freely without over thinking things. When you quit thinking so much and give yourself freely, unconditionally....in taking chances I believe you find life's greatest rewards. You only have one life...right? We shouldn't put so much pressure on ourselves. I hope someday we can explore...a future together as I really believe in that...as I don't think I loved you for no reason...please don't feel pressured... .I do love you and can't pretend that I don't. Love also means "wanting to see the one you love happy....even if it is without you" One more try??? Think about it. I really was so very happy with you...I would like to give it a chance with just the two of us...we didn't get that before, in my heart I believed it would have worked. Give it some thought.....you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I promise you it won't take long to figure it out...as I know in my heart, give us a second chance...3 months and you will see....I am that certain.
Hope you have a good start to your week!!
