A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…Via A ONE WAY STREET
Happy Sunday Morning, GHers!
Today, my hubby’s parents will celebrate 50 years of marriage, and around here, there are dresses and rollers, and nail polish and make-up all over the place. Somewhere in the middle, my son is waiting patiently with his hair product, as he is low maintenance.
I couldn’t get through the preparations of this fantastic celebration without thinking about the other couple who talked about 50 years on their wedding day…our beloved Jason and Sam. I wonder if Edward and Lila would have ever made it to 50 years of marriage – no matter how rocky – if their fans had to endure spoiler after spoiler, and rumor after rumor.
I highly doubt it.
I think I’ve told you guys that I avoid spoilers and rumors like The Plague. There are two friends whom I trust when they tell me what they can, and that’s it. I don’t visit spoiler sites, and I really try to avoid all whispers and rumblings. Why, you might ask? Because over the past few years since Jason and Sam’s 2009 Reunion, there have been so many meltdowns and breakdowns over “what was coming” or “what people were saying”…only to have Jason and Sam make it though almost 3 solid years. Had I given in to the mass panic and paranoia then, I would have HAD to give up on Bella Mafia. I seriously could not have handled the anxiety that comes with waiting for the other shoes to drop THAT many times.
I know that there are serious rumblings out there now, and we have already had to put up with the kisses of (almost) death of our faith. However, I’ve noticed one thing as I’ve read over the comments over the past few weeks. We are dropping like flies long before the battle, because we are letting the massive amounts of rumors and spoilers take us down! That just cannot happen!
If we start to give up on Jason and Sam now, then we may as well send the Jizzers a congratulatory basket and call it a day. 😦
I think we are on the right track. We are not watching what we do not want to see, and so far, the ratings have supported our position. In case you haven’t seen the latest ratings, please check them out on their home site: http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/news/ratings-all-soaps-down-in-women-18-49-viewers-3
Let’s let the ratings, and our voices be our battle plan – not giving up. If people can get us to give up fighting for The Morgans with a bunch of made up CRAP, before anything even happens, then their strategy becomes the more effective one. That is UNACCEPTABLE…on principle alone. Let’s be clear: not watching what we don’t want to see is not the same as giving up. I am STILL Team JaSam. I need you guys to be, too!
There is only ONE WAY to go here, and that’s upward and onward and FORWARD! Let’s get going…
Obviously, it’s gotta start with BELIEVING. Thanks to Heather, we have some inspiration to help us believe in miracles. “I Believe In You and Me” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCJ71VznMvw Credit: aproditebeauty
Hey! I have an idea! Next time we are tempted to get down and depressed about what we may have taken away, let’s think back to all that we already have! Our baby boy is alive, and will be coming home! Hang in there, so we can be ready to welcome him back home with “Arms Wide Open” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjVV60pcPsU Credit: JasamUnited
Do me one little favor: please read the description of this vid. Sound familiar? “What About Now” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJCgKxws6no Credit: jasamispassion
Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. Jason and Sam make us all a little “Crazy” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsfNCZifjdI Credit: poetfederico
No matter what is happening onscreen, we can be sure that this is how Jason and Sam feel about each other. “I’d Rather Be With You” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBnirxRL77I Credit: loveepeacee
Our very own Kathy (@PoetedericoDJ) is singing in the background of this vid! This vid reminds us all that JaSam have plenty to fight for…and so do we. “I’ll Lie Myself To Sleep” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Io4PF02iJ8 Credit: poetfederico
Shall this be our theme song for the “odds” facing us and The Morgans? “Against All Odds” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc_Q6QlSXhw Credit: poohlvr571
I know exactly how this bidder feels, as per her description. She just expresses her depression so much more nicely than I can. 🙂 “Where You Are” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHVUqvYKObU Credit: JaSam4EverAlways
They did it once, they can do it again. “Start Again” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjgb-EX2Q98 Credit: 33beLIEve33
This is Heather’s JaSam, but it’s mine, too. I am almost positive that it’s yours, too! “I Will Take You Forever” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBzUXWLv4eg Credit: aproditebeauty
I hope we are all heading in the same ONE DIRECTION now…JaSam needs us to fight now more than ever!
Enjoy your Sunday!
I Believe In Miracles,
