It has been a frightful day. My emotions are all over the place.
Decisions have been made and conditions set.
It's up to my son now.
But despite the fact that all day I've been crying on and off, I have felt held and loved by my friends. Both those that I managed to send a circular email to and who have responded with such love and care back to me in their own particular ways, and the lovely people who have left comments here.
I am blessed
Thank you

Oh the reprieves from the storms get shorter as they blow out of control...... That's not my favorite place to live, but you know that.
So many things I walked through with the boy--and while I wanted to blame....I know too much. *sigh* Doesn't stop me from going there to spend some of the anger.

I watched the boy toss it away. And yaknow--someone said it..time has a way of making things different. He has a life today. Not the life I would have chose, but it's his life to do the chosing for. And it's a LIFE.
For that--I'm grateful.

See where all this led -- to me and mine instead of you and yours.
Please know you and yours will now get top billing in my thoughts and prayers.

Just know you're not alone in the experiences. And it ain't about being a 'bad' anything--k?

*HUGE hugs*

Yes, you are loved! I was away from the computer through the weekend, so just caught up to you. I'm sorry it's been so tough and glad that you've made your decisions. Sending butterflies to ease your emotions, to help you be steadfast and strong in your decision. And more butterflies to your son to help him do the right thing.
If you need new ears to hear your story, I check my email more often than blogs.
Many hugs to you,
