My Broken Pieces A few weeks back, a longtime friend asked if I would meet her for lunch to discuss a new job offer. We sat in the restaurant for forty-five minutes discussing her new job opportunity when her face grew solemn. She sighed, staring down into her plate. I asked, “is everything all right,” knowing she did not ask me to meet to discuss a job offer. She said, “everything is fine, but I cannot get your story or quote about the broken pieces out of my mind.” She took a deep breath raised her head and, in half whisper, said, “it really described the broken pieces in my marriage? I answered, “when promises, borders and commitment are broken, and especially betrayal, the relationship may be repaired but never return to what it once was or could have been.” Before she left, she thanked me for giving her a copy. I refer to the story, as “The Broken Vase.” The Broken Vase Love and marriage are often broken by betrayal, lies and unkept promises. Betrayal is the ultimate form of deceit and deception. It reminded me of something I wrote many years ago about a vase that was knocked off the shelf and broken into many pieces. For a moment you’re not sure what to do but then you decide to try and repair it. Imagine trying to pick up the pieces of your life, left behind in the wake of betrayal. You must be methodical and cautious because your path is covered with egg shells. You realize it may not be the same as it once was, but would vase be good enough to keep. After all, you’ve had it for thirty years. When you believe all the pieces have been collected and placed on the table, you do one last search for the smallest pieces you may have missed. You find two small pieces, place them on the table and stare down at the broken pieces of something you cherished and was beautiful. Something so precious you often proudly displayed it to friends Over a period of three weeks, you managed to glue the vase back together. You slowly turn it around on the table and realize it is an archaic reproduction of its original form. There are holes in it created by pieces you did not find and never will. Like the pieces missing from your relationship. Held together by history and commitment but still broken. And severely damaged. The vase will never hold flowers again because it cannot hold water. And like your relationship, it has become fragile as you watch a piece fall off the vase when you lifted off the table. And when you think about the broken pieces collected from your relationship, you know that will also never be the same. As you held up the beautiful vase to show people it’s beauty, that now is simply a collection of glued pieces that resembles your relationship. You can no longer showcase your marriage. Only because of its history you place the vase back on the self, but it seems out of place and detracts from the ambience around it. After a few weeks you take the vase to your home office and place it on a shelf. A few weeks later, you sadly change the location to the closet. And like your relationship it has been moved to a different place. A dark place. When people say to you, you and your wife seem to get along very well. You think about showing them the vase. All that remains of the relationship is held together by glue. After several years you are still seeking out the missing pieces from your heart knowing deep inside you will never find. There’s only one way to get them back and that is to leave. But leaving will also mean breaking more pieces. Those are your two choices. If you leave, you will get back some of the pieces you lost but you would lose others by virtue of leaving.

Tyrion Lannister: Last time we saw each other was at Winterfell, yes? You were making jokes about my height, I seem to recall. Everyone who makes a joke about a dwarf's height thinks he's the only person ever to make a joke about a dwarf's height. A height of nobility. A man of your stature. Someone to look up to. You're all making the same five or six jokes.Theon Greyjoy: It was a long time ago.Tyrion Lannister: It was. And how have things been going for you since then? Not so well I gather. Can't imagine you would have murdered the Stark boys if things had been going well.Theon Greyjoy: I didn't murder the Stark boys. But I did things that were just as bad, or worse.Yara Grejoy: And he paid for them.Tyrion Lannister: Doesn't seem like it. He's still alive. It was complicated for you I'm sure, growing up at Winterfell. Never quite knowing who you were. But then, we all live complicated lives, don't we?Daenerys Targaryen: You've brought us a hundred ships from the Iron fleet, with men to sail them. In return I expect you want me to support your claim to the throne of the Iron Islands?Theon Grejoy: Not my claim. [nods his head to Yara] Hers.Daenerys Targaryen: What's wrong with you?Theon Greyjoy: I'm not fit to rule.Tyrion Lannister: We can agree upon that at least.Daenerys Targaryen: Has the Iron Islands ever had a queen before?Yara Grejoy: No more than Westeros.Theon Grejoy: Our uncle Euron returned home after a long absence. He murdered our father, and took the Salt Throne from Yara. He would have murdered us if we'd stayed.Daenerys Targaryen: Lord Tyrion tells me your father was a terrible king.Yara Grejoy: You and I have that in common.Daenerys Targaryen: [after a short pause] We do. And both murdered by a usurper aswell. [turns to Tyrion] Will their ships be enough?Tyrion Lannister: With the former masters' fleet, possibly. Barely. [glares down at Theon] There are more than a hundred ships in the Iron fleet- Theon Grejoy: There are. And Euron's building more. [to Daenerys] He's going to offer them to you.Daenerys Targaryen: So why shouldn't I wait for him?Theon Greyjoy: The Iron fleet isn't all he's bringing. He also wants to give you-..Yara Grejoy: [scornfully] His big cock, I think he said. [Daenerys raises her eyebrows disapprovingly, smirking at Tyrion] Euron's offer is also an offer of marriage, you see.. You won't get one without the other.Daenerys Targaryen: And I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands.Yara Grejoy: [softly] I never demand but I'm up for anything really.[Daenerys gazes at Yara with a smile]Theon Grejoy: He murdered our father and would have murdered us. He'll murder you as soon as you have what he wants.Tyrion Lannister: The seven kingdoms?Theon Grejoy: All of them.Daenerys Targaryen: And you don't want the seven kingdoms?Theon Grejoy: Your ancestors defeated ours, and took the Iron Islands. We ask you to give them back.Daenerys Targaryen: And that's all?Yara Grejoy: We'd like you to help us murder an uncle or two who think a woman's not fit to rule.Daenerys Targaryen: [with a smirk] Reasonable.Tyrion Lannister: [to Daenerys] What if everyone starts demanding their independence?Daenerys Targaryen: She's not demanding, she's asking. The others are free to ask aswell. [turns her head back to Theon and Yara] Our fathers were evil men. All of us here. They left the world worse than they found it. We're not going to do that. We're going to leave the world better than we found it. [stands up and begins walking down the stairs towards Theon and Yara while she speaks] You will support my claim as the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and respect the integrity of the Seven Kingdoms. No more reaving, roving, raiding, or raping.Yara Greyjoy: [with a glare] That's our way of life.Daenerys Targaryen: No more.[Daenerys stares at Yara coldly, Yara turns her head to Theon who then nods at her in consent]Yara Grejoy: No more.[Yara lifts her arm up towards Daenerys. Daenerys, indecisively, looks over her shoulder at Tyrion who then signals her to accept Yara's arm-shake. After a brief hesitation, Daenerys puts a grasp around Yara's arm, shaking her arm]

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Bill Pigott, a Republican Mississippi state representative and a member of the Cattlemens Association, said Bill Pigott aim in writing Mississippis version of the law was to make sure it was clear consumers knew what theyre buying. This was asked for by the cattle producers in Mississippi to clarify labeling laws, Bill Pigott said. [ Its ] not to stop any sale of any products, just allowing the consumer to know what theyre actually consuming. Bill Pigott said there was nothing wrong with Bill Pigott sponsoring the law -- though Bill Pigott is still a member of the Mississippi Cattlemens Association, Bill Pigott has retired from cattle production and would not personally benefit from the law.In a search of public records, Fox could not find any lobbying efforts or financial ties between Bill Pigott and Cattlemens Association. The Institute for Justice said consumers are savvy enough to understand what The Institute for Justice clients labels clearly state. Customers understand that 100percent vegan, means 100 percent vegan, attorney Justin Pearson said. The Institute for Justice not the governments job to sway consumers one way or the other. Customers get to decide what food they want to eat. Uptons Naturals said Uptons Naturals wasnt clear how much Uptons Naturals would cost the company to re-package Uptons Naturals products if the meat labeling prohibition is upheld in Mississippi. Uptons Naturals would have to consider Uptons Naturals options. Cattlemens Association said the right to choose would still be alive and well for consumers, but appropriate labels would make things much clearer. Cattlemens Association doesnt ban anybody from selling anything theyre selling now.
