Sorry I missed your post, Linda! My daughter is doing ok. She's 20 and flunked out of her 2nd quarter at college :( It was a shock to us, because she's always been a straight-A student and very disciplined. There were no drugs or alcohol involved, just too much time with friends and a new boyfriend. So, I know it could be a lot worse! We're especially upset about the money... a quarter is about $7000 which we didn't have to begin with!

Anyway, my husband and I have recovered from the shock. Now we're trying to figure out how to go forward from this.

Thanks for the prayers! They are very much appreciated :)

Linda, you have a point. She is a lot like I was at her age! And I turned out ok :) I just didn't want her to go through the struggles I did. But of course, that's how we learn and grow, right?

One thing I found helpful is to remember what I was like-we become pretty self-absorbed in our teenage years(and sometimes 20's).For what it's worth-my oldest son was so hard-and now he
is an honorable man and a great blessing to me.

Thanks! I have a (slightly) more positive outlook this morning. I'm trying to keep things in perspective, but it's hard watching your kids struggle!

I'm in need of prayers. Prayers for patience and discernment. We need to make some tough decisions about our oldest daughter. She's a great kid, but she's made some poor choices lately :( Geez, why don't kids come with instruction manuals??

Anyway, I'd appreciate any prayers you could send our way.
