Sunday Mornin’ Blues

I wrote lyrics once to a song called “Sunday Mornin’ Blues.”  Well, i’m feeling them today. 

Last summer, when I made the decision to move, one thing I left behind was my relationship with a man I really loved.  Actually, we were trying to keep it together.  He had family issues out west; I had family issues back east.  We’d take care of our families and then have time for each other again.

Well, yesterday – almost exactly two years after our first date – he TEXTED me to let me know that he’s dating other people, and he thought I should as well.  Ok.  I get that a long-distance relationship is difficult and maybe it was too much to expect we could keep it going.  But telling me BY TEXT??  We’re 50 years old – not 15!!  i don’t know if I’m more sad or angry. 

One more thing lost to the cause.  And know this – I still have hope and I’ll keep on going and I know that God has a bigger plan.  I’m just complaining and whining and saying it here because it feels good to get it out.  Thanks for listening!

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more!! He picked up the phone…he could have dialed your number quicker than it takes to type a text. Sheeeesh!! And hey, as for whining and complaining, I say better out than in!! We all need to vent sometimes and I think it’s good to purge sometimes. Hang in there….hoping tomorrow is brighter for you and right, God has something much better in store for you!!

  2. He doesn’t deserve you…obviously there is another man in future. Someone special.

  3. What a chicken sh*t. Sorry, but that’s the first thing that came to my mind that he did not have the guts or maturity to pick up the phone. Either way it hurts and I am sorry you had another difficult issue to deal with. Maybe you and I will both meet a good, decent wonderful man soon.

    • Thanks ladies. LOL @ Barbara – your comment made me laugh. But actually, he’s a dear man with his own issues, so I’ve forgiven him. He’s done so much for me and my kids over the past couple of year, I can’t hold on to the anger. But YES, we will meet our wonderful men at precisely the right time – I’m not in a hurry at this point!
