I AM A SURVIVOR. I could have been one of the numberless child abuse victims that have been seen in the obituaries.I could have given in to the darkness that surrounded me at every turn. I could have taken my own life. (As I've said in a song I wrote called "If" "Should I let my father kill me, or should I do it myself?")
The human spirit, no matter how much darkness there is, sometimes finds the tiniest bit of light in the darkest of places. I am Unbreakable.

Superbowl CHAMPIONS (OR ME WINNING THE JERSEY>>>YEAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! (Ok- Thats a play on words...lol)
I am a HUGE Seahawks fan…When we are doin well I wear my
Seahawks dress to church. I’m pretty proud of that thing. When we are not doing
well I tend to feel like a mom who can’t watch her kids do badly and I have to turn away.
The year we went to the Superbowl with Matt Hasselbeck, I
bet someone that the Seahawks would win the Cowboys.
I got a free Matt Hasselbeck jersey out of it.
But then we lost the Superbowl. I think Hasselbeck
completely carried the team and was an incredible player. But 1 person can only
handle so much pressure and shouldn’t have to. I still am mad at the Steeler Alumni
refs who stole our super bowl, AND our touchdowns.
I was in the stadium when the defeated Seahawks came home. I
had a BIG sign that said
Not only that but for years afterword’s I had a Superbowl
sticker on my car that I changed partially in black marker that said “STUPIDBOWL”.
I’m still mad about that.
Now let me tell you about my winning streak.
Over years, I have put my name in drawings to win things at
my husband’s work, my work, and anywhere else… I once won a singing contest for
valentine’s day for KOMO radio here in Seattle for singing “I’ve Got A Crush On
You”. I don’t know why, but I always win.
THIS year…I have had WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much fun with a guy
friend on Facebook… The conversation went something like this…
Me- "So since the girls wimped out(;p none of the girls would
bet me) do any of the boys want to bet me a Superbowl jersey that they win?
(Seahawks Jersey for me if I win and I'llI buy a Broncos jersey for you if you
do) anybody game? Damien? Ryan? or any other rabid fan that I know? This
year...FINALLY were gonna WIN! Seahawks...YEAH"!!!!
Ryan: “ I would totally take that bet if I were at all in
control of the checkbook, Heidi dear!”
ME- “Lol Ryan:p”
Me-“ Yeah, we know who is control of the checkbook at my
house;p Guess its the same everywhere...lol”
Damien “hope your superwoman cape rips off and smacks
Russell Wilson in the face on a game winning drive” . (My profile pic is Wonder
Woman on Facebook cause I dressed up like her wig and all…:p)
Me-“It will make him FLYYYYY”!
Damien-“ that’s ok too....cuz that’s a penalty....
well....unless you have the refs from the niner game...smh"
Me- “So anyone else game? Or no one else brave enough to bet
Me-“I see lots of Seahawks logos on peoples profile pictures
so there's not many people to bet...And the Empire State Building has our
colors too because we beat out the Broncos in a vote...anybody brave enough to
Damien " Sure...”I'll take it...but you'll owe me a
Niners Jersey... And of course everyone you see on your profile has Seahawk
Me-“Ok, I'll bet you that Damien. GAME TIME! (Well, Sunday anyway)(I may be yelling at the
TV a little louder than usual this year:p And if Broncos lose I will get you
some 49ers consolation stuff anyway”
Damien-"ha. ha. ha".
Me “PICK UP WIND”;p lol Te he.... Ok, so if Broncos win I will
get you a 49ers Jersey...So we on”?
Damien- “Well....you should just buy it now....lol”
Damien “It's on like Donkey Kong”!!!!!
Me- “I'm lookin at it as the wind in my sails that the
Seahawks will win this year! At Damien”...;p
Damien-“And you have to take a picture of yourself wearing
Me- “Oh Yeah? You mean of the Seahawks one you’re
gonna get me when I win”
Me " Ok...I'll do that":)
Me-“Now you and Ryan can yell at the TV when Seahawks win.
Were gonna swoop down and poop all over the horses. Oh...I can't believe I just
Damien- "last I checked....the weather was good...
Me-“Yeah, if you’re a popsicle!”!
Damien- 50 degrees isn’t
cold....besides....the Broncos have played in that weather but not the
Me “Ok, so were on
for Sunday January 30 2114”
When Seattle put a 747 up that had the Seahawks logo I stuck
it on Facebook…and HERE WE GOOOOOO
Damien- “They better not fly it on Sunday...cuz it's going
to go down”!!!! lol
Me- “Legion of boom! ( in your yard haha!)”!!!!:D
Damien- “Little Seahawk
Lego plane.....awww....legion of thump...hehe”.
Me-“LEGION OF DOOM...FOR YOU! ;p Bowing coming soon to a neighborhood.
On YOU! (R HOUSE) KA-BOOOOOOOOOOOM! Lol” HEE HEE!!!
Damien- “more like aaaa-chooo! Lol”
Me-Lol “More like the
full blown FLU VIRUS!!! Gonna STOMP YA”!
Damien-“its ok cuz the broncos have the vaccine!!!! Lol”....
Me-"Risk of Human-to-Human Spread of Deadly New Bird
Flu Virus Higher Than Previously Thought". Lol There is NO CURE!
Damien- “They are going to stomp you!!!! Seahawks don’t
Damien -"Pfft.....I am the cure....bird flu proof"!
Me-"Grab and STOMP. ( Hermione sais Flick and twist)"
Damien –“you are going to look great in that niners
Me-“Oh yeah??? Well this will look great on me:P(Picture) On the off
chance you win which one you want”?
Damien Henderson- " since you said torture....Crabtree will
Me-“I thought so”...
Me- “I might have to get Sherman...but honestly, I'm trying
to decide if I like Wilson on Lynch better...on the fence...Just that ball slap
was a once in a lifetime...and man, if that didn't get us to the Superbowl, I
don't know what did"...(Not his mouth...lol)” (I’m getting Wilson)
When this started circulating the internet course I couldn’t
resist posting thid
Damien " No one knows better than Gandolf the White
a.k.a Magneto!!!! THE SEAHAWKS SHALL NOT PASS!!!!!!!!!!! *bright
Me-"Well at least Patrick Stewart got the jersey right"...
Me-"His (Ians) choice in colors is atrocious. Lol... Bad fashion
choices leads to a LOSER!! Dress for success dude"!!!
Me- "(your comment still made me laugh though)"; p
My seeing “Frozen” (The movie)..That wasn’t even
exempt…lol…my status…”Saw Frozen..loved it”
Damien- "Like the Seahawks defense".
Me- "Or you mean like Payton Manning when he gets run over
by our DEFENSE! Our mojo is STRONG!”
When the game started it started out in our favor and just
didn’t stop. It was almost as if the Broncos put Vaseline on their ball and we
had magnets on ours…talk about two completely different ways for the ball to go
for each team, almost as if the ball just gravitated towards the Seahawks.
The first touchdown, how the guy just walked over everybody…that
was cool…and the ball getting taken by our team over and over…It got to the
point where I was posting on Facebook like…"Oh…there’s the ball. It’s OURS.
AGAIN! HEHEHHEHE! And WHOAH!!! Just got the ball from PEYTON MANNING"!!!
Someone posted…22 and 0!!!
First complete half time shut out since Super Bowl 35!!! Soooo I posted “Ryan…I
just talked to the Seahawks and I made them promise they would give the Broncos
ONE touchdown before we win, LOL! ;p HEE HEE!!!!!…” before the one and only
touchdown…I find that hilarious.;p . But I’ll admit even I felt bad for Peyton Manning.
He is normally such an incredible player.
So “First touchdown of the game to Broncos finally happened...even
the Seahawks clapped for them...cause they felt bad...lol...oh...they just got
another one...meh...were stlll ahead…At least they don't have to lose with no
Near the end of the game the boys had gotten the ball so
many times, and scored so many touchdowns that I think they started to get
seriously excited. That’s when it started to get funny….and dangerous…lol… this
is what I posted “Ok boys stop getting so excited that you knock your own
players out ”. HAHA!!!
Yeah…Sherman got hurt by one of his own teammates… Weird…but
kind of funny in a sad kind of way…though I feel sorry for him. Others are
saying its Karma…but that Peyton Manning had the class to go and see how
Sherman was doing after the game speaks volumes about the guy. Sometimes it’s what
you do off the field, even if you don’t win that shows what kind of man you
are. That Sherman tweeted afterword’s that “I could learn a thing or two from
Peyton Manning” says a lot…maybe he will mellow out. (Even though that head
smack from Crabtree was pretty uncool…)I hope so because he really is a VERY
good player. Despite that, Sherman is the reason we GOT to the Superbowl…
The real class act of the day to me was Russell Wilson
talking about his dad saying "Why not you"? Being told he was too
small to play and despite that beating ALL the odds. What an incredible player,
not to mention a team leader. Inspirational even. Telling the team "Why
not us" carrying on the tradition from his father. Pretty classy guy. I think I'm going to be wearing the number 3
from now on
