an Instant of Life Captured for Eternity

By Melissak

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone had a great weekend and start the week. Mine has been terrible, we had an attempted break in the other day, and I’ve been an emotional wreck ever since, hence my absence.

Its strange how the brain, takes you to the what if’s.  This is what happened.  I was home alone by myself, when I kept hearing a soft scratch at the door, I wasn’t really bothered by it, because I just assumed it was one of the dogs, but for some reason I decided to go check what was going on.  I looked out the window and could see a man standing at the door, bending.  At this point of time my heart was racing and for some odd reason I just opened the door.  What I saw was a man standing with a knife and crowbar, trying to break open the security gate.  I started breathing heavily and slammed the door in his face.  The thing that freaked me out the most was that he didn’t run away instantly, its like he was still contemplating if he could do this.  A minute or seconds went by and I saw him jumping over the barbed wire fence without any trouble.

I called Carl and he came rushing home.  The police arrived an hour later and told me to by a gun….Yes, a gun.  They left without even asking anything, they just told me to get a gun and that I should have chased after this guy.

I’ve been really scared for the last couple of days, first of all I think I didn’t react like I think I should have and every smallest sound makes me jump.  Thinking about the what if’s is driving me crazy, but a friend told me you can’t live in fear, you just have to carry on.

So here I am carrying on, and looking on the bright side.  In two weeks, I’m marrying the love of my life, we’ve decided we want to be together, we love each other completely and we can’t afford to waste money, in our attempt to get out of this country.  So we’ve decided to just go get married, we want to write vows for each other and read it to each other at our honeymoon spot, and maybe on our  1 year anniversary we will have a little ceremony with friends and family.


^^ This looks like a weird family collage, but I get to marry this unbelievably handsome fellah, when I’m just so weird.  Look at that haircut.  Gosh, its good.

Happy Wednesday.
