you wish he was


Letter from my great-great grandfather, a military police officer, to my grandmother in 1944. It’s quite likely he was her dad rather than her grandfather.

“Somewhere in Belgium, Nov. 23rd, ‘44
Dear Margy,
Your old Daddy hasn’t forgotten you at all + I hope Santy is good to you again this year. For if he is not Daddy will shoot him will that be O.K. I wish Daddy could be home with you but he can’t so all he can do is be thinking of you on that day. So you be a good girl and maybe Daddy will get to come home to you before very long. So write Daddy a letter won’t you and don’t forget me.
Lots of love, your Daddy”


Charity: Are you sure you know what you’re doing in there?

Temperance: Look, I never claimed to be a cook. If you want to impress your weird boyfriends with gourmet cooking, you can find yourself another sister.

anonymous asked:

How's John? Still the same? I hope you don't worry too much, because flu can be very nasty for a couple of days and the patient looks and feels awful. John's lucky to have you, anyway. Take care of yourself too. Best wishes for all of you.

He is worse.  He’s hardly talking, and when he isn’t vomiting, he’s shaking, drifting in and out of sleep, and just clinging to me.  Sometimes he cries in his sleep.  It’s very hard.  I’m glad that he’s letting me look after him the best I can.  I’m trying to just keep him cool, because he is having trouble keeping the paracetamol down long enough for it to take effect.

Connie came and looked at him this evening and said that he is starting to look dehydrated, so if he isn’t keeping water down by morning we will take him to hospital to be rehydrated.  His cough sounds like it’s going to his chest too, which I don’t like.

I couldn’t go to my therapy with Ella today, but she talked to me on the phone for a little while.  She said I shouldn’t worry, that sometimes grief and trauma catch up with you once you are in a safe place, and that can come out in your body.  John had to stay well and strong for a long time, but now he’s safe, and Watson’s safe and cared for, and John would probably never take the time to properly rest and recuperate on his own, but his body is forcing him to now, and that’s good. She said maybe he needs that.  

She thinks I’m doing everything right, and I have Connie here, who is a doctor, and Molly who could also come and give a second opinion.  John is perfectly safe.

She’s right.  It’s still hard not to worry.

Since you’ve been a child you lived in Kattegat and one of your closest friends were Bjorn. You always met to play together and you thought that you would be best friends till the end of your life. The day he left with his mother way maybe one of the saddest days you ever had in your life and you wished that he would come back one day. Your wish came true and you’ve seen each other again when you were already grown up but it was like you never were torn apart. If he had any problems or something like that he came to you and you always had a solution. Today you meet with some men and women to talk about the next journey. It would be the first one you would join and you are very excited to be a part of it. After all the things about it are said you simply sit there, sipping some wine and looking around. Suddenly someone comes to the table to sit with you. It is Bjorn who smiles at you: “Can I talk to you?”“Are there any problems?”, you ask and look into Bjorns eyes.“Yes.. do you think I should start this journey? I do not know if this is really something I should be doing.” You know that Bjorn is not sure about this, the route is way more long than the last ones he did and he never used this route before. “Well, I never traveled this fare but if you do not do it, who else?” A smile appears on Bjorns mouth and he nods: “I guess you are right.” Bjorn takes your hand and looks at it. “Would you mind if we could go to your house? I would like to talk a little bit more but not here.” You know that Bjorn likes private rooms to talk about serious things. It is not the first time that he ask for something like this so you say yes and the both of you walk toward the door. Harald and his brother Halfdan stand in front of it, talking and laughing. “Oh, you two already want to leave?”, Harald asks and looks amused in your faces. Bjorn laughs and shakes his head, getting a little bit red. You just smile and look at Halfdan, who stares angry at Bjorn. He just grabs your arm and lead you through the door. It is already night and you and Bjorn walk to your house, but you have the feeling as if someone might follow you. “Can you hear that?”“What?” You roll your eyes and whisper: “It sounds like someone follows us.”
“I can not hear anything.”, Bjorn simply replies and continues to walk to your house. It ain’t a long way and it’s been only a couple of minutes until you reach the small building. Inside it is way more warmer than out there in the dark. You sit down in front of a fire place and watch Bjorn who makes a fire for you. After he joins you and looks desperate on the floor. He tells you more about his problems with this journey and you listen carefully. While listening you realize how much Bjorn comes closer and closer. He lays his hand on your thigh and you need to concentrate a lot on his words. You know what he tries to do and you don’t know if you think it should end up like he wants.Suddenly you can hear how the door to your goes open and Halfdan comes in.  “What is going on here?”, Halfdan asks and look angry at you and Bjorn. You look surprised at him and Bjorn takes his hand away. You don’t know why Halfdan is here and you have the feeling, that this won’t end up good. “I told you to stay away from her!”, he hisses and clenches his fists. Bjorn tries since a long time to get your friendship to the next level, but you always tried to push him away. That Halfdan would have something against this too you would never imagined.“Please, she is not your property…”, Bjorn simply replies and goes to the door. Your hands begin to sweat and you stand up from your chair to go to Bjorn. Carefully you touch his shoulder and try to get him away from Halfdan: “Come, don’t begin to fight or something like this.” “Why don’t you go to bed with Astrid or your woman, I mean, you already have these two. Ain’t it enough for the Lothbrok boy?!” Within a blink Bjorns fist hits the jaw of Halfdan. He pushes you to the side and hits Bjorn back. “Stop! Please stop now!” All you can do is yell while watching these men hitting each other. It is Bjorn who stops at first, he wipes the blood in his face away and rushes through the door. Angrily you look at Halfdan: “What was this?!” He tries to catch his breath and looks at you. His brown eyes stare at you while he comes closer to you until you hit the wall behind you. His hands reach out for the wall to lean against it, while he still stares at you. His eyes only once leave yours to check your body and clothes and it feels like an eternity until he says something. “I don’t want you to be one of Bjorn women. He already had and has enough. Don’t be one of them.”, he makes a short pause and looks to the ground as if he needs to search for the next words, “Be my only woman.” You are so surprised about these words that you can only stare at him. Is this the reason why he acted like this today? If you are honest your know that he often stares at you when you two are in one room, but you never thought it would be because of that.
“What?”, you whisper and look into his eyes with the feeling, that you could can get lost inside of them. Halfdan smiles and pushes a strand of hair in your face aside: “Be my woman, my wife. I promise you that you will be the only woman in my life that matters.” His huge hand strokes your cheek, pulls your chin up and he places his lips onto yours while his other hand pulls you closer to him. His kiss is carefull and he holds you as you might breake if he would be too rough. Halfdan stops the kiss and looks into your eyes: “Tell me you want to be mine.” You simply nod and kiss him again.

You don’t have to separate these things with Jefferson. He can have written this incredible document, and several incredible documents, that we all, sort of- with things that we all believe in. And he sucks.

I think those are both true, and those have to be both true. I think we really have to stop separating them, ‘cause that’s when you get into trouble. That’s when you stop letting people be whole people.


If you wanna stop this, then stand up! Because I’ve just got one thing to say to you! Never forget who you want to become!” |
