For you, a thousand times over (Part 2)

What a journey. Truly an amazing story.

Totally heartbreaking.

A father’s unspoken love.

The beauty of brotherhood.

Unconditional love.

Dear Karma

There’s a saying:

Keep your nose out of another’s mess.

Strictly Between Us by Jane Fallon is made for a real page turner. Believe it or not I finished reading it in a day. I find it to be both witty and ironic with the ridiculously funny evil plot twist which reminds me of Mean Girls. Except that this one involves grown-up characters who were not originally mean and secretly live a life of lies and deception and ends up with a divorce. Yup, life’s pretty messy, right.

I know it is hard for someone who is being overprotective. They don’t want their best friends to get hurt by their loved ones. But putting yourself into their personal life is a no-no. Absolutely a NO! It is okay to lend an advice or two on relationships. However, please let them talk it over and decide. It’s their marriage, not yours.

Dear Karma, I really hate you right now, you made your point. – Ottilie Weber, Family Ties
