Nothing like gaining perspective about your life when you see how those less fortunate to just to survive on a daily basis. The was in Syria right now is raging and this chapter made me think about how hard and devastating it must be there while we sit safe in our homes...

Well that definitely did not answer any questions with renee... sounded a bit selfish and pissy to me. How dare she get indignant with Bella for being upset for what She did by leaving. Bella was right renee was a coward and a bit of a biotch. Oh did Bella come to ruin her perfect little life? Boo Effing Who
At least now she had her say and yeah, she does not deserve Bella as a daughter Esme loves her though!

We all know the only person in Forks at this moment is renee. I would really like to hear her explanation for leaving her daughter and never even trying to contact her... or did she and Charlie would not allow it... one has to wonder. And she did make the best decision for Her by leaving both guys sitting there...

I loved the change up with Rose and Em, that was soo so cute...

Now the truth is on the table... yeah, she has issues with her mom but she is so right about his issues with jane... his one statement said it all, "You will never be her, Bella." and you cannot blame her for how and what she felt next. "There. Right there. I knew it all along. "Then why even try?" I surrendered." She was always being compared to a ghost, his perfect wife, she is supposed to give up her life she has carved for herself for him because he wants it... he cannot give up His job at the hospital, why? because of "his wife" how would starting over at a new hospital do her memory a disservice? or make it any less meaningful? hmmm. Does he love Bella enough to make the move for her? Her mom left her, she did not choose that, why should she go looking for answers that will only hurt her more, at least in her mind. I can understand how she would feel intimidated when his whole apartment is like a shrine to his dead wife, where does Bella fit in his neat little life...? hmmm it seems he wants all the giving to be on her side, what is he bringing to the table of compromise? Not much, except accusations... what about his self-professed, "I will not give up on you, I will persue you." He made promises he is not standing behind, what does that say about his promises...? Just Wonderin'

I totally Love Kell Rose is right, she is perfect for Anna and such a great friend to Rose as well... friend enough to tell her what she needed to hear, to give her the courage to do what her heart really wanted I loved the cute scene where Mark was cooking and Kell was watching sports, too cute!

Yeah, seasoned spouses tend to have some good advice. No telling how long Mr. Aaron was married, I loved the description you gave of how is ring was engraved into his had from wearing it sooo many years... good visual image...
Make up sex... always the best!

Poor Rose Woooo Em wants to kill Royce, plant him six feet under, with no daisies...
| KimiD chapter 18 . 8/26/2013
Thank goodness they got to say goodbye... that is the hardest to take, not being able to say it.
| KimiD chapter 15 . 8/25/2013
I think maybe Charlie knows things that he never told Bella about renee's leaving... why would his parents know something?
| KimiD chapter 14 . 8/25/2013
That was a great backstory made him who he was, changed him forever, love can do that!
