If you want to live deliberately, purposefully and authentically, you must draw your nourishment from the indomitable spirit within, where the seat of life’s longing for itself rests. Sidney Andrews 3 days ago
I'm so glad that I could be of help! How old is your son now? My daughter is 10 and it's so bittersweet right now. I'm navigating through the years where our relationship is love/hate sometimes. You know where for the most part she loves me, but every so often I'm the know nothing, leave me alone, enemy? LOL!
I've learned to take life in stride. I remember being that age and how confusing it is and stressful. She's transitioning and I know part of her just wants to be a kid and be with me forever, and part of her is ready to break out on her own and have all the say, but I know if I keep playing broken record with her, it will all sink in. Like my friend, Jim, and I were discussing yesterday, one day our girls will look back with appreciation of what wonderful parents they had. Well, with my daughter it will be parent as her father wanted nothing to do with her. His loss. 7 days ago
I'm so sorry that you have been left such a heavy burden and loss. I will keep you in my prayers. You will get through this. My year is going pretty good so far. Today is much excitement for my daughter as she plays in the festival of bands. First year of her playing. First year of me going to support. It's going to be total craziness. Plan on taking her out to eat to celebrate afterwards and then tomorrow will be laundry and dishes and taking a friend of hers and her roller skating tomorrow. Every day we have to embrace it as it comes. There are times where I feel overwhelmed and then I think about what is overwhelming me and just do a little each day until that feeling goes away. 8 days ago
