Next year in jerusalem

FOR ONLY $8.95!

Dear Natalie, I just woke up from a lovely nap. The flight is great and in two hours I'll be landing in Israel. I can't wait to see you and Jerusalem again. I hope we can go out for a great dinner tonight. You pick.

Will David join us? Will we go shopping tomorrow?

I hope we go and find your mystery woman also.

Guess what movie I watched before I dozed off? Mamma Mia.

It wasn't as good as the play but still I love all the songs and the energy and the colors were gorgeous. Greece isn't that far from Israel. Maybe we can go over there for a few days and explore a Greek Island. How does that sound? Maybe we'll have an adventure there, also! Who knows what is around the next corner?


I'll do anything fun! It is such a relief for me to be away. Away from everyone and everything! Gary is great but I even need a break from him. He looked so sad when he took me home last night. But I'm not sad. I am almost relieved not to be seeing him for a few weeks. It's all too new-I mean my divorce-for me to be really ready for another permanent relationship. I don't even like the word 'permanent' right now. I want to be free as a bird. Feeling good about myself. Feeling alive. Making up for lost time!

Janet is handling any customers that come my way while I'm away. Everything is in order. I didn't even leave any food to rot in the frig! I am ready! Let's have the best time we have ever had!

Love you, Maggie

Dear Maggie, The Panda Bear is so cute. Sounds like you had a great day with Gary. I would suggest you try to put aside some of the past with your ex. You are not the same person you used to be! I saw how you took hold of your business the last five years and took yourself from a depressed, angry homemaker to a successful business woman. Bad marriage, bad divorce. Good marriage, well that is a different story. And some day you will have a good marriage. I'm sure of that. Or the most amazing love affair the world has every known. How does that sound?

Speaking of love affairs, I am a little worried about Jack getting in touch with me while I am in Jerusalem. Don't yell at me! I know you think I was stupid to even 'friend' him. But we all 'friend' everyone in our pasts, don't we? Isn't that part of the whole Facebook thing? Connecting in a new way to old connections? Mmm so you think maybe I am rationalizing? I can hear you across 6000 miles.

Anyway, with David so busy, I keep thinking about some of the things Jack and I did. Things I shouldn't be thinking about. Romantic stuff. I don't want to remember some of it, but it keeps floating back into my head. What can I do? Help me.

The silence is deafening. The only good news is that you will be here soon. When you are here, we will be so busy I won't need to daydream. I'm going for a swim in the hotel pool now.

Love, Natalie

Women, Fantasy and Reality Webinar

Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, psychologist, happiness coach, researcher, and of course, author presents a Webinar: Women, Fantasy and Reality.

Sign up today to receive instant access to this Webinar!

As women we have many needs. Some needs are met through personal and intimate relationships. Other needs are met through friendship. Other needs through work and professional lives. Still other needs are met through raising or caring for families. And still other needs are met through fantasy. The webinar will discuss these various needs, healthy and at times unhealthy aspects. For example, it is perfectly normal to have fantasy thoughts that we never expect to live out,yet help us get through some very dull or trying times. On the other hand, having expectations for our loved ones that are so unrealistic that they can never meet these expectations, is an unhealthy use of our imaginations.
