A Dedication to someone special in my life.

Updated on December 17, 2009

She calls herself Sandi.......

Oh, I think I am going to do it again. I felt the need to write this, so here I go with a lot to say and such a short place to put it.

I do want to give credit to a very special person in my life..

The wonderful person has been in my life, my whole life. Being 1 year older than me my whole life, I would say she took care of me.

She started out her life as a young adult without the convenience of the most essential thing everyone should have, parents. She went out on her own.

I have to say you wouldn't have known it. She started out bar tending in various places(under age)all over Joplin, Missouri. I would say if you walked into her shifts she was working, you would walk out with a sore belly. This gal is the best comedian I have ever known. She should have made a living as a stand up comedian. So since she didn't, she brought it to work with her and made money like she was in Hollywood. I visited many times during several years of her bar tending and was just beaming with pride to know her. She has done many jobs to date and done each one well.

I have to tell you a funny story about her . She came to stay with me in Phoenix. She decided one day it was time to go. I came home from work, no Sandi. A call a couple days later told me she was hitchhiking back to MO. She made it, there isn't much she can't handle.

To date, she has two very beautiful daughters and is now a stay at home mom. She calls me and I laugh so hard every time. One day she called me and told me to read her hub pages. I had no idea what the heck that was, but of course I was curious. I read her reads and they were very good. She had one on the funny things that happened during her bar tending years. One on the spook light in MO. Anyway, all of them were great reads.

This young lady has been such an inspiration to me. There isn't anything she can't do. She stands up for what is right. She'll definitely defend the respect of others, she knows the meaning of values. She really has a grasp for the proper way of living. She is not a follower, but a leader.

You have probably guested it by now, she is my sister. Her little ones are my nieces. She is so funny. She waited to have her kids, I had mine right away very young. So now the funny is to call me up and call me grandma. My kids are almost grown, and hers are 12, and 3.

You probably want to know why I am writing this. I mentioned in another one of my hubs I would tell you where Sandi3m went.

Well, this is the deal. She was doing great, had her ad-sense up to 60.00. She actually got me started. One day she called me and had some very rude comments and e-mails from someone who was on the hub pages. Kinda threatening, really nasty, just down right horrible remarks. 3 days later she received a message from AdSense that they would no longer run ads on her hubs and that she wouldn't receive the money she had built up. Like I said she does stand up for what she believes in so she quit the hub pages. The message she got said for her not to contact AdSense, it was just that. I admire her for her stand up way of life she lives.

The reason I wanted to write this is because, we lost a wonderful writer. I think it had to do with these rude disgusting people who wrote on her hubs. I think they also must double click a lot or something.

Anyway, that is what happened to Sandi3m. I do miss reading her hubs.  As luck would have it she is doing something else on the net and has received 50.00 and is about ready to get her next 50.00 dollars in just a short 2 wks. She's doing great, but I am saddened she isn't here with us anymore.

So, I wanted to give her some recognition for her work she did here since she won't receive the money she accumulated. And, if you are like me it takes along time to make money here.

Great job Sandi3m.....Love from your sissy..........

      I would like to nominate my mom we call her Beck, she was a single mother of 8 children, 4 boys 4 girls, we all turned out great responsible and caring. My reason for nominating her is that she still works full time along with daily mass, she prays for all of us she has taken me, my shell of a person and has gone through divorce, illness after illness, sadness. You can't even imagine but she has a place in Heaven waiting for her she is my HERO. She deserves the dedication, Thank you show her she is The Best.

      Thanks for the hub. I was wondering what had happened to Sandi3m, and had no clue she was your sister until you wrote that hub a couple of weeks ago. I am glad she is doing well.

      Thank you Cgull. I sure would love her to come back on and write her funny stories. I haven't experienced the rude people yet, but do know if I do I will delete and ignore them. I don't know what happened, but she had several clicks on adds in one day that shouldn't have been there. She had no one in her fan list who would've done that. So I wrote this to give her credit for her writings and also to alert people. Thank you again.

      Good dedication for your sister. I hope she comes back. I always delete or ignore the rude comments, that way we shouldn't keep a platform for them.
