My 14 year old Son and I were talking the other night, and he said something doesn't feel right Mom, things seem too out of the ordinary. I think what he was referring to is all the changes he is going through recently graduating from Middle School and moving onto High School. He is talking about his relationships and how things always seem to change.
I explained that life is ever changing, and that we all go through changes, but it's how we accept these changes that determines weather we will be happy in life or not. I always felt we had two choices in this life, either to be a victim or our unhappiness or to be happy regardless of our circumstances. It's never easy, because as humans I believe we want more then we can have at times, but also I think we always strive to be at the top because who doesn't want to be there.
I have learned to lean on God for my strength because my parents died when I was a young age and that was so heartbreaking for me. I have a wonderful husband and a wonderful Son whom make me smile, but God is my rock and my heavenly Father whom I always pray to every day in good times and in bad times too.
I understand so much of what my Son is saying, and it was at that moment, that I wasn't really sure how to help him because I can't change what is, but I can show him how to deal with lifes changes.
