    I don't know why I'm surprised really - but I guess Steve just blew off the "Congratulations" I sent him through his brother. I've been pretty hurt by it - but after having some time to think - I was the better person. I took the time to think about him. It just shows what type of person he is -after all the stuff I did for him. Guess I can't worry about it anymore. It is what it is - and whether he never cared about me - it just shows really what he is like based on all the stuff he said to me through the years about how much I did mean to him. I really don't need people like that in my life - I'm better off without them.

If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Default I do a lot of not so perfect things...

    I do a lot of not so perfect things, but I hope you don't mind the suggestion that you delete this thread.

    It feels to me you are trying a case in public. When I drink in resentment I've learned it's like I drank a poison and hope the other person dies.

    I find if I have a resentment for someone if I pray for them my mood/karma changes, maybe not in the first couple days, sometimes it takes 14 days, but it really helps. Try praying that they have a great marriage, good health, wonderful baby etc. It may help them, but it will really help you.

    My experience is the only doubters of prayer are folks who havent tried it.

    Saying that I'll pray for you tonight.

    I've loved this song for a long time and tonight I heard it on the radio again. It does make me think about a lot of things.
    If Today was Your Last Day - video

    My best friend gave me the best advice
    He said each day's a gift and not a given right
    Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
    And try to take the path less traveled by
    That first step you take is the longest stride

    If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
    Would you live each moment like your last
    Leave old pictures in the past?
    Donate every dime you had, if today was your last day?
    What if, what if, if today was your last day?

    Against the grain should be a way of life
    What's worth the price is always worth the fight
    Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
    So live like you're never living twice
    Don't take the free ride in your own life

    If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
    Would you live each moment like your last?
    Leave old pictures in the past?
    Donate every dime you had?

    And would you call those friends you never see?
    Reminisce old memories?
    Would you forgive your enemies?
    And would you find that one you're dreaming of?
    Swear up and down to God above
    That you'd finally fall in love if today was your last day?

    If today was your last day
    Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
    You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
    Regardless of who you are

    So do whatever it takes
    'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
    Let nothing stand in your way
    'Cause the hands of time are never on your side

    If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
    Would you live each moment like your last?
    Leave old pictures in the past?
    Donate every dime you had?

    And would you call those friends you never see?
    Reminisce old memories?
    Would you forgive your enemies?
    And would you find that one you're dreaming of
    Swear up and down to God above
    That you'd finally fall in love if today was your last day?

    Guest - I wanted to comment on this a couple of days ago. I didn't ignore it.

    I don't mind you suggesting it - I most likely will "delete" it soon again.

    I actually don't have this up here to try the case in public. Do I feel a lot of resentment - yeah I do - with the whole situation. I'm more hurt than anything else, but then obviously it doesn't matter too much how I feel - so I just have to get over it. I shouldn't have been there all those times for him - because it obviously didn't matter to him. I have to just face the fact that him and I are no longer friends - that it is what it is. I reached out with the baby and he wasn't big enough to even say thanks. I didn't even expect him to call me or anything - I just thought he might have acknowledged it through his brother. Do I think about what's going on? Yeah I do.

    If people want to pray for me - I'm not going to complain. Prayer never hurts - although I guess it all depends on what you are actually praying for.

    The chorus of "Have a Nice Day" has such great meaning to me. I'm a very independent person and even after some difficult episode in my life - I eventually get over it. I'm going to live my life and I'm not going to let others put me down.

    Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day



    Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi - Video

    Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
    Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
    Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
    Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man.
    My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid.
    Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

    Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day

    Take a look around you; nothing's what it seems
    We're living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
    Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
    Anybody brave enough to take a stand,
    I've knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
    Looking for forgiveness,
    what's left to believe?

    Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.

    [Guitar Solo]

    Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.

    When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
    I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground.
    Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day
    Have A Nice Day
