Local Paper's Detail & Friends

    - Ashley Ryan

Thank you all for your kind words regarding the RYAN situation.  I know the family appreciates it and can use all the support.  JLAND IS THE BEST!!

At dinner last night, Miss T said she knew why Mr Ryan wasn't in school.  I said "so do I".  We talked about it just a bit.

I asked Tom if he would "go on a hunt" if Miss T were missing and he said "in a heartbeat".

Then I told her I would "beat you bloody" (a funny term of ours of course) if you run away and I catch up with you!! 

We also said that there wasn't ANYTHING that she couldn't ever come to us about no matter how bad, sad, insane, hurtful or silly, and that running away wouldn't solve any problem whatsoever.

She said that when she heard of the runaway she said "that's just stupid".  Smart kid, but she's only 11 and we know what comes in the teen years.........  "but Mom I 'love' him".


Please Dear God give me the wisdom to deal with a teenage girl!

Running away can only get you into worse trouble --

Meeting up with the wrong people, people who "act" like they want to "help and be your friend" -- these are the kind that could cost you your life.

("Little girl, I've lost my puppy - will you help me find him?")

From the article, at least Ashley went to a church for help where I'm sure she felt was a safe choice.

 I talked to the xRoomie yesterday.....she's loving life in her new Job/living quarters.  Said she was having"withdrawal symptoms" though and I told her it was ditto for us too.

I miss talking with her and knowing she was close.  She's not too far away, but, it's not the same.

  Also got an IM from the xCo-worker today.  She's doing fine in TX - still unpacking and getting settled in.  I miss her too.  We had some great talks and became close friends while we worked together.  We worked well together too.  It would be hard to replace that kind of relationship.

Speaking of work......I'm trying my best to stay on top of things.  There is a lot to do -- stuff I'm sure the boss isn't even aware of.  We finished all the bills on time and are working on a new home quote.   Hopefully soon the water moritorium will be lifted in this county and we can begin to build again.

Whew! I'm so out of the loop! All the exes are mystery to me. Look like I need to cram on reading your past entries.
About the running away thing, I hope Ms. T will not do that in her teen years but when the hormones start kicking, no one knows how a teen will react. I think for some teens, it is part of their maturation process...
As far as the comment you left on my blog, I believe that you can incorporate positive thinking and faith (religion). Afterall, GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES. I see it as a faith enhancer rather than a deterrent.
Hugs to you and your family.

I hope and pray Ashley Ryan is found safe and sound. Miami has some very rough areas. My prayers go out to her and her family.

Miss T is smart but as you say, you never know about what the other kinds of people are capable of.  Have a good Friday.
