Checking in...

Hi guys! Sorry I have been so absent from the blog lately. I'm dealing
with some stuff with my oldest that I'm not ready to talk about yet.

Teenagers are tuff. They just are. My sponser say anyone that says
their teenager is a cake walk is just plain out lying. I don't know
about that, but I know mine's a pain in the ass.

It came to my attention that what I am most scared of is the reckage
of my childrens futher. I don't want their journey to be as painful as
mine was. And as much as I know that their journey is there's, and
thay have their own higher power, I still want to protect them.

  1. I'm sorry you're dealing with teen issues Em....I'm still in the pre-teenish times and am not looking forward to their teenage struggles. I, like you, want to try to protect them, but you're right...they have to live their own lives and learn from their own mistakes - so hard to sit back and watch as a parent though. Trust in your HP and ask Him to guide your son in the right direction....don't stop praying. I'm here if you need to talk/vent/cry whatever....see ya in a few weeks :) Big, big hugs to ya girl....xoxo

  2. Hey Emily - last summer I had the worst summer ever dealing with "teen issues". Fortunately, the bad times pass and things get better. However, I am expecting this to be an "ebb and flow" time for the next few years. Things are good now but I know that can change at any moment. All we can do is be there for them. I am finding that I am a much better mom when I stay away from alcohol so I need to focus on that first and it will make everything else better. Remember, our teens didn't ask to be teens and didn't ask for the difficult times. They are trying to become adults and are having a hard time too knowing what to do. They will make plenty of mistakes and it is just a part of life that we have to try to understand and remember what it was like. Anyway, hang in there and have hope that it does get better!
