I was listening to a "parent round table" podcast today. The thing that I always find interesting and also a little alienating is the talk about their addicts/alcoholics getting back into their lives. Going back to jobs, careers, school, working on getting their degree....really? That is not my reality. At all. Not even vaguely.
My reality is that I watch my child struggle and battle everyday to have a clean day, to function, to muster up the courage to step out and actually DO something, to be able to sleep alone over at her apt....*we need a dance contest in our lives! With a tough heartbroken partner who understands pain.
At least thats what I think.....of course God has His own plans that never fall into the timetables that I think would be most efficient.
But I'm Still praying....
* Have you watched Silver Linings Playbook? If not, do so.....just sayin.
Also...I received in the mail a few days ago two photographs of two beautiful girls who need prayin for. Their sweet faces are tucked away in my God box with so many others of our children.
They aren't forgotten.
