Thank you so much for the sweet response to my last post. I am humbled by the words of encouragement and all of your prayers, and I am glad that I shared with you all. Just letting off some steam helps to make the weight seem lighter.
Some things for me to think about
***Figure out how to be loving towards my girl with out accepting her behavior.
***Let her make mistakes and accept her own consequences.
***Release her to God's care--He is able.
***Let go of trying to control things. Deal with situations as they arise and then move on with life.
***Don't let this become the main feature of my life.
***Talk about this situation more because the feedback and encouragement is so helpful.
***Don't get stuck in "WHY"!
***Don't let things between Em and I get emotional and heated.
I know these things will go a long way in making this path smoother for all of us. This period of time is temporary and doesn't need to define all of life right now--for myself or for Em.
Again, thank you. Your encouragement is a treasure to me.
Today I am sewing with a friend and tonight I have some free time with my hubby. Needless to say I am looking forward to both of these things!
I hope your day is a good one!
