Today is a new day. Tomorrow will be another new one (Lord willing). I have been reminded of this by YOU! Bless you all.
The Boy has not relapsed (that I know of) but is exhibiting addict-like behavior and is depressed. Life as he knew it is almost completely different and it is difficult at any age but near to impossible to accept at his age. School starts next week and he is nervous. Justifiably so as he left before the school year was over. He isn’t ashamed to say where he has been. However, he is now saying he does not have a problem; he is just a social drinker. If that is true…WHAT THE HECK HAS BEEN GOING ON ALL SUMMER!!!
Addicts lie. They manipulate. They hurt people. As much as I love my boy, I am going to follow the wisdom of his counselors and Al-Anon: I am going to stop the self-pity and move on with my life. I am looking forward to working with ESL and this is stepping way out of my comfort zone as I am a homebody who doesn’t go out at night if at all possible. Still, I will do it for God, my students and for me! Woo-hoo! Bring it on!
I’ve been watching my Little Bells two days a week and it is very enjoyable – and exhausting. What joy she is. I wish I could show you all new pictures but, as I have stated before, my hard drive it jam-packed and I am afraid it is going to explode if I add another thing! Eventually, I will take care of it.
Take care, g
