Hello, Everyone. I sent an email to Gloria this morning and she replied, asking me to post it. So here it is. Feel free to ask questions. I've left a lot blank -- not intentionally, just wanted to try to be brief.
Hello, Gloria. I found your website this morning from a Letter from God that my angel card reading teacher, Elizabeth Foley, forwarded to me. I just finished reading your recollection of childhood, and I'm crying. How sad. And yet now you have found God and are happy. That's great. I myself had a wonderful childhood. I was loved and pampered and spoiled and cherished and encouraged. My two sisters and mother called me "Madame Queen." I guess each one of us is given an identity at birth, just as we are given a job to do here on planet earth. I AM so grateful for my wonderful life. I think that you must be, too, grateful for your life. Especially now. One of my "things" is that I want everybody in my life to be happy. I feel like I know you after reading about your life, so I want you to be happy, too.
I was born in South Jersey back in 1944, and I have lived all over the world. When I was 3, my mom told me I used to toddle down the back steps after breakfast and have a conversation with the old lady from Italy who lived next door. My mother and grandmother would watch out the kitchen window and wonder how in the world we could talk to each other since the old lady only spoke Italian. No one in the neighborhood could talk to her, but I did! I remember she used to tell me about her garden that she was working on, what she had planted, that the things she was pulling out were weeds, and when the vegetables would be ready to eat. That was my purpose on earth and still is: bringing the people of the world together, one person at a time. I had my first trip abroad, to Paris, when I was 19, and it changed my life completely. Up until that time, I had wanted to get married and have children, just like the other people in my life were doing. My boyfriend of 4+ years, whom I met when I was 15 and he was 19, told me we had to save money to buy a house before we got married, and I was (and still am) not a saver; I am a spender. I keep the flow of money going. (smiles) So when this trip to Paris came up and I went, I discovered that there were LOTS of other men in the world who were interested in me, not only one. So I broke off my relationship with Dominic and branched out. I never got married the first time until I was 32. And I never had children because I decided I never wanted any during the summer I was 12 years old when I had a full-time babysitting job taking care of 2 children ages 6 and 8. I had no time for myself and I didn't like that. After that first trip to Paris, I took two more trips to Europe and then decided I had to live there to really get to know the people, so I started looking for a job overseas. My first was as a temporary secretary in London for a summer. I loved it. Then I joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Afghanistan, where I lived a wonderful and varied life for over two years. Next I moved to Greece and loved life there for close to four years. I never wanted to leave, but I guess God wanted me back here, for I met a guy who wanted to marry me, and we came here to get married in my mother's church in South Jersey. Then we came here to New Hampshire, where his father was living at the time, for our honeymoon. When we went back to Greece, Johnny said that he wanted to come here to live. I didn't want to. I LOVED living in Greece. Johnny said we could learn the computer industry and move back overseas with higher salaries after five years. I thought I had no choice, even though I was 32. I decided that I was newly married and I would make a go of being a wife, whatever that meant. To me I suppose it meant that the husband comes first. That is how my mom was (in a way) with my dad, who was the professional in the family with the important job, who brought home the money every Friday night. So I moved to New Hampshire with my new husband. I tell people he dragged me here, kicking and screaming, and plopped me in the woods of Londonderry, and I didn't know what hit me for three years!
Gloria, I am going to speed this up now because I have no idea whether you are interested in all of this! I have a fear of boring people. That's because I am easily bored myself and do not want to hurt people's feelings by trying to escape. At least that is how I USED to be, but nowadays I can gently get out of a situation that is being boring to me in a kindly way.
Johnny and I got married and moved to NH in 1977. We got divorced in 1985. In 1995 I married Khaled, and in 1998 I think it was, we got divorced. He is still in my life -- in 2000 I was in a terrible auto accident which took me out of the corporate world (God's way of moving me forward to my next job) for good. Khaled continued to bring me money each week and urged me to apply for Social Security Disability, which I finally did and which took a long, long time to happen, but it is happening now, and that is my income, which takes good care of me. So does Khaled. And he shares his darling little 2-1/2-year-old angel daughter, Maya, with me. (He is remarried.) He brings her over almost every day. I feel very blessed to have her in my life. She is my little girlfriend and I love her dearly. I thank God every day for her being in my life. And -- a couple of weeks ago I vowed to regain my power from Khaled, which he drains from me, and get my groove back. I have named my project "Stella Regains Her Power And Gets Her Groove Back." I have many people supporting me in this. And this morning I found you, Gloria. I am happy that I did.
With love & light from *Stella*
