Thank you to everyone who gave me a response after my last sad blog about my Son. He contacted us this past weekend and is now willing to move back home to live with us and look for a job close to home. He had been struggling financially with a minimum wage job that only provided 25-30 hours per week. His best friend was evicted from the rooming house where they rented rooms and he became lonely and depressed about his life and how it was "going nowhere". He said that he could hardly pay for his room and had little left to spend for food and other essential expenses. When he called us, our Son told us that he knew that he needed to get a better paying job so that he could budget his money carefully and save as much as possible for the future! Those are topics that we had been trying to emphasize with him in the past and now finally he seems to "get it"!! YEA!!
He sent me a wonderful e-mail for Mother's Day thanking me for everything that I had done to help him and acknowledging that he didn't know where he would be without my help!
I am cautiously optimistic about him coming home and hoping that his Father continues to be supportive and less critical of our Son's efforts to turn his life around.
