Did you know I'm Telepathic?

Yea.

I am. Sometimes.
...

...

OK. I can prove it.

Just now half of you were thinking "where the heck is she going with this?"

The other half of you, minus one, were thinking "OK, I really know she is crazy now and why am I coming here anyway?"

And that rebellious one of you that wasn't included in those two categories...well, you know what you were thinking and I cannot share it here because it is too private. Too private and too painful.

See?

I told you I was telepathic!

Yea, I'm cool.

...

Now, I'm wondering...did you get my telepathic message back?

The message telling you why I even wrote this post in the first place?

...

...

...

OK, I'll tell you. It's because this morning when I woke up I was thinking about my sister when she was in the nursing home.

I would sit beside her bed and she would just stare at me.

And I would say, "Liz, you have to tell me what you're thinking...I can't read your mind."

And in the days when she could still talk she would yell at me and tell me to try harder.

"You can," she would shout, "You can! Just try harder!"

And then she would sit there and stare at me and I would get up and turn the TV on and she would yell and say "Pay attention...I just told you that I needed a drink of water."

And then she would stare at me some more and I would get up and get her a snack and she would just beam at me..."See," she would say, "You just had to try harder."

But remembering that made me think about telepathy as a form of communication.

And I was thinking it's not really a great method of telling someone something. Or hearing what they have to say.

Because people don't always know what you're thinking unless you tell them.

And so...if you didn't get the rest of my telephatic message this morning I'll just write it here to be sure you get it.

Do you all know how much I appreciate you? Your sweet comments. Visiting your blogs. You make me laugh. You make me cry. You amaze me each week when I read through the Alphabe-Thursday links.

You are all really neat. And I'm really glad our paths have crossed here in Blogland!

I appreciate you all.

Except for that one person.

And you, one person, I just don't understand what message you're sending me here!

I would write "sigh" before I sign off from this post.

But somehow, I suspect you already knew that I would!

See!?!

Telepathy at it's finest!

Ah, but Jenny, as another telepathic, I KNOW what you're thinking.........

beedeebabee♥ said...

Jenny, I think I am too...a bit. I knew what my dad was thinking those last days, although he never said. Never said anything to upset us, but I knew. It hurts to think about it. I miss him so much, as I'm sure you miss your sister. xoxo Paulette

Brittany said...

:) You are awfuly clever! I really enjoyed this post.. and have plans to enjoy many more in the future!

Theresa said...

You may know what I am thinking but my head is spinning trying to come up with what you are thinking:) Hugs to you my sweet friend. I hope your day is filled with happiness!

~Kim~ said...

What is they say about "great minds thinking alike?" I really think this is true...But you already know that! :-) Enjoy your weekend!!

Tina said...

You make me laugh and cry in the same post. I don't know the story of your sister, but it sounds like it's a painful one. {{hugs}} And you reminded me that although I like you, am telepathic, The Engineer is NOT ;-) So I'll speak up.

CherylK said...

A most interesting and insightful post, Miss Jenny! Would you consider premonitions in the same category? I've had premonitions...some good, some not so good.

mub said...

I don't know if I appreciate your tone! I'm sending you messages of love and friendship... it just gets muddled because it has to go so far over the ocean ;)

Cynthia said...

Jenny, I am loving your blog. Thank you for visiting mine and introducing me to your witty and upbeat world. This post is great ;^)

Linda said...

Of course you are Dear! I hear you loud and clear and I even follow you..so what does that say about me?

Lorrie said...

Oh Jenny, you've caught me out!

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

OK....I'm thinking really hard....can you tell I love coming here? Wow, you're GOOD!

I didn't have to say anything because you already knew what I was saying....

...I'm just sayin'......

Jeanie said...

A great post for showing us how to find love in both the happy things and the sad things. I could feel the sigh even though you didn't write it.

BECKY said...

Hi Jenny! Although I don't participate in Alphabet Thursdays (and only because I'm too lazy to read the rules!)...I'm telepathically sure that you included me in your blog friends, because we both make each other laugh and maybe shed a tear as well. I'm grateful to have you in my list of blog buddies, too! :)

Julia Christie said...

This reminds me of my sweetheart's and my communication pact: "Use your words, and keep using them until your message can be repeated back to you by your partner in a way that shows they understand".

(I tried the thought thing, but I'm thinkin' both people have to have the 'gift'). :-)

lovely post.

weird that i should be able to answer that telepathically!

Lourie said...

I used to be telepathic. Then I had kids. hahaha.

Yankee Girl said...

I have no telepathic abilities, but somehow my older sister and I are so in sync. I can't tell what she is thinking, but I feel how she feels.

I have just learned that my husband cannot read my mind. It is amazing how much better our relationship is now that I don't expect him to read my mind!

ain't for city gals said...

We should all say how much we care about the people in our lives every day...the comment about her relationship is much better now that she knows her hubby can't read her mind could have been me..lol..

Peppermint Patty said...

I don't have telepathy, but me and my 3 sisters have a "unique way" of understanding each other when we are talking on the phone and eating at the same time.

It's crazy, but it works! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you are following too! :)

Sandy said...

I have found that I amvery telepathic with people I love....I think we all egt there eventually with our loved ones and our firnds.....as far as the "one" who isn't.....oh well, not everybody listens to their hearts!

I am also so glad we met Jenny!

Jennifer said...

I think you're awesome, Jenny. :)

Julie Schuler said...

I was thinking I'm going to go eat one of those pixy stix you sent us. The boys won't notice one little one missing.

Ms. Anthropy said...

You DO have that telepathy thing going on!

~Carrie from Cottage Cozy~ said...

Right back at you, Jenny!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

My husband thinks I should be telepathic. But alas, I am not. I guess I just need to try harder. Great post!

Busy Bee Suz said...

*Sigh*
This is awesome Jenny, for you are awesome.
I love that Liz was being funny, even when she was not well. That shows true character!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Hello Ms. Jenny...reading this made me feel as if I was back to my normal life for a moment. The plan was to click on all of the blogs I follow and read all the posts I missed. Well, I could see that was never going to work and it was stressing me out. So...today I decided to do what I do. I'm reading the list in my blog feeder and also reading the people who comment on my post. Maybe there will be a time when I can go back and catch up, but so what if I don't?

It is good to be back to blogging a bit, even if I'm not at home. It makes my day feel more like my "real life"! Missed you:)

Terri and Bob said...

Yes.

No, but maybe later.

Really???

Oh.

Whimsical Creations said...

You are Definitely telepathic!

I still need to try harder. ;)

Tgoette said...

Hi Jenny!

Glad you took my telepathic suggestion to write a blog on telepathic communication.

To answer your telepathic questions:

1. No, I am not a model.
2. Yes, I have been in a psychiatric care facility, but was only visiting.
3. No, I have never taken money for doing that. Yet.

Great post!!!

La Petite Gallery said...

Well Jenny,
I have had dreams of My Husband and Mother that are so real I
wake up. I also saw my Husband in the yard after he DIED. THREE DIFFERENT TIMES AND I AS WIDE AWAKE. We all go through things we are afraid to tell or sometimes
afraid to believe. Yvonne

grammy said...

sigh

You knew what I was thinking didn't you??

I wonder about your sister...but I am not sure I want to know...If it was MS don't tell me. Know that I am sorry for the hard time you both had.

Have a great weekend...can you guess what I am doing? Come on...how did you know I was eating out with good friends tonight at Red Lobster...and yes...yes..I already feel guilty about the calories!

You knew about the great nephews BD party...and to go to that I gave up going to the dragon movie with my Daughter and Family.....I know...you already knew I felt guilty for never getting to go to any of their BD parties so I said yes on the invite


Oh, and you knew that I spent the morning with my 2 year old Grand D. even if it was my day off from babysitting...

I am tired of typing

and you already know I never leave anyone this long of a comment (o:

Believe it or not I once had a cat that was telepathic. When it was time to give her a pill she'd run and hide when I picked up the bottle. After a while she'd run and hide when I got up. Soon she was running and hiding when I just thought about getting up and giving her a pill. That cat could read my mind!

BONNIE K said...

You see, I'm always thinking that my husband should be telepathic. I'll have all these plans in my head and then he'll go and announce he's doing something else. And I'll say oh, I was thinking we'd do this, and he'll say you have to tell me these things - I can't read your mind! I wish he could...

Dee said...

I am so glad that you know that....means....and that I do believe it.

Vicki said...

HEY JENNY...
Did ya get my telepathic messages all week saying I'll be a little late for class? But..WHEW..I think I made it...
I'll be gone most of this week too but as soon as I get hooked back up, I'll be here again...

"Listen" for me (o:

You are such a wonderful person.
I love your blog-it combines fun and serious all at the same time!
Keep it up.

Have a Super Duper weekend.

I am still trying to use my special powers to generate wealth, but instead of having futuristic dreams about what team will win the Super Bowl or which stock's value will soar in the coming months, I envision myself moping the floor or washing the car--and unfortunately they always are accurate.

Megan said...

Actually...I was thinking that you are a lot cooler person than I thought you were because you have Cross Canadian Ragweed singing Cry Lonely on your blog.

That is freakin awesome!

Farm Boy and I go WAY back with some Cross Canadian Ragweed. And we are big fans of Chris Knight...who wrote Cry Lonely.

So yea...just had to tell you that.

Loved the post too. I'm glad our paths have crossed as well. :-)

And your pretty neat too.

Ta Ta,

Brenda said...

Don't even pretend you can read my mind. You know I think you're a nut because I tell you almost every day! LOL! But nice try, hahahah

KK said...

Yes, I'm definitely telepathic too.

My name is PJ. said...

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I enjoy it when you share bits about Liz. It's as though I was having a cup of tea with the two of you; herbal, of course.

That telepathy thing, or lack thereof, is the downfall of many Mars/Venus relationships. Just sayin'. I know, there's a wet rag in every group and that wasn't even remotely the point...and it wasn't even remotely funny.

I've been laughing for the past hour...this was all I could come up with.....

Mumsy said...

I like story about your sister..and love how you communicate with us through telepathy.

Christy said...

I have no witty reply. sigh. But you knew I wouldn't didn't you? I am glad I found your blog and alphabe-thursdays.

w said...

i'm telepathic, too. like. i know you totally like me. and if you didn't before, you do now. see?
