Tough night

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

It was an honor to be asked to stand up for my nephew as he becomes a member of our church. It was also so emotional for me since Adam doesn't believe in God right now. Thank you so much to my friends here at Spark whom gave me perspective. My husband also said that teenage boys can go through this. Especially with him coming out this year. It was alot for me. It still is but every day is a new day. I went to Zumba which was hard again. It was so difficult not to be able to do what I want in the class. I'm going to call my mom's podiatrist and hopefully get a second opinion on my foot. I just want to make sure I'm doing the right things with it and I was very unhappy with the podiatrist I was going to. The kids didn't have school today which was awesome. We had lunch with Joe and now just hanging out. Joe said he will have a conversation with Adam about his lack of beliefs. Food was ok today. I'm doing better. I will work on the water. One moment at a time here.

    Teens job is to disagree with parents!!! Not to worry, set good them and hang on tight. They do come back if the good stuff is planted. As for being gay. ... well..thank the lord it is easier now than it was years ago. Parents like you will make it easier for this generation. WTG!!!! ( I gave birth & raised 7 teens) they are all fine and happy. I am gay. emoticon

    Oh I did not realize what was up...just continue to love Adam no matter what. He will be fine no matter what his beliefs are right now as long as you and DH stand by him.

    Ultimately it is one's decision to make when being part of religion. You can lead by example, if your DS is made to be part of something he does not wish to be he will pull away even further. Gentle hugs, Keke

    Maybe Adam is just questioning things right now or possibly thinking that he would be rejected by God. Who knows. I do hope that things work out for the best for all of you.

Great that you had a nice day with your kids.

Hang in there. You'll get through this.

Interesting day

Monday, November 07, 2011

We went to church with the family. Rehearsal for my nephew's confirmation went well. It did feel awful knowing my son doesn't believe in God and I'm stand up for my nephew who is choosing to become an adult member of our church. It weighs heavy on my heart but I will let it be. We went lunch for my moms birthday. That went well. I think she really enjoyed it. The boys had rehearsal and Joe and I watch a couple movies on tv. Today I'm headed out with mom to bUy a cross for my nephew. I'll clean up the house and go to the Confirmation ceremony tonight. Food was pretty good yesterday. It could have been better but it could have been much worse. Have a great day.

    We believe in the God of love that will never let us go. Just be patient God will not leave your sons but they need to go through teen age rebellion. They will come back when they are done being "boys".

    Praying for you and your family. These things sometimes take years to overcome. People like you and HartKitty have kept me from becoming an atheist. KEEP PRAYING! I WILL!

    What a sad thing for you. Knowing that one of your children is an athiest. Something must have happened to him in order for that thought to arise.

Congratulations for standing up for you nephew. Hope you find something nice for him.

Have a great day.

I had a very Nice night last night. We ended up with drinks with friends while Adam, Chris and Tori went to the movies. Joe and Adam thought I was being ridiculous because TOri wasn't sure if she could make it. I told them that they were to young to be dating as just the two of them. Group get togethers were more appropriate. My therapist felt the same way. I made sure to tell them that. She was able to make it and the night was a success. Today we are going to mass with my family and my nephews rehearsal for confirmation. I'm his sponsor and am very honored. We are having lunch for my moms birthday. She turned 63. The boys have rehearsal tonight. Food was good Yesterday. Dance was fun. Frustrating but fun. Have a great day.

dinner with family

Saturday, November 05, 2011

I usually enjoy dinner out with Joe's cousins and his sister and her husband. I don't know. I've just felt lately its all about Joe when we get together with people. It seems to be his friends or family we are with. I'm not saying its his fault but I just feel that way. Oh well, I'm probably being sensitive right now. It wasn't my favorite night. Joe had a blast. That is good. He deserves it. He is working so much and really participating with how we handle things with Adam. I'm going to my hip hop class this morning. I haven't been there in a long time. I'm happy to be going. We may be having lunch with my friend Kate. That will be good. Adam is going to the movies tonight with Chris and friends from the play. Joe and I may hit a movie as well. Food was great yesterday. Great choices all around. Yay! I need to get more water. That will be my next goal. Josh is at a campout. I hope he is having fun. Have a great day!

It's good that Adam is getting out and being with his friends.

Have a good weekend.

Adam talked to the director and is out of the play. He felt better. We went to his therapist after that and he let me come in with him....I haven't done that in a long time. He felt better after that. It went well. Joe talked to the director of guidance at the school. He was very happy we had Adam in counciling. He thought Adam scaling back with things was great. We texted Adam this morning. He said he is doing good. One day at a time. I got my period this afternoon. That explains the binging the past few days. Today is better. We are having dinner tonight with family. I hope I get more into that. We will see. Have a good day.

    Well, it's good to know that things are getting better and that Adam is getting back into perspective and coping. Take care of yourself now.

    Sorry that I haven't been here for a bit. Things are getting crazy.

I'm sorry that Adam is depressed. I do hope that he gets his therapy regularily for a while. As for letting you come in. Fantastic.

It's fine if he is feeling overwhelmed and decided to drop some activities. Obviously, his heart just wasn't in it anymore.

Give him a hug and love him. That's all you can do. I have read your previous blogs and good on you for picking him up from school. You are a wonderful, supportive Mother.
