... on the bright side

 I've been feeling really disconnected lately. I feel as if I have no idea of my own reality -- if that makes any sense... Possibly these feelings stem from being so worried about my youngest daughter and her situation and feeling like I am so helpless to be able to fix what is wrong.  Mothers are suppose to do that arn't they? They are suppose to make it all better and right now I don't know how to do that.

I'm trying hard to remind myself that that which does not kill us only makes us stronger, and usually I have found that to be true.

On the bright side...

you are just doing what mothers do. yes, we want to help, fix, protect, yet at some stage, we cannot. we need to let them make their own choices and decisions. and that is when we end up feeling helpless.

Everything seems just a bit more manageable with the sun shining. Hope it gets better. (((hugs)))

Love that I can find a slice of the bright side over here.

I am going through a very tough time w/ my child right now. It is feeling horribly dark. I am rambling around online, but don't feel compelled to post anything. Sigh.

about 10 years ago I went through some very difficult times when I was helpless to fix what was wrong in my daughters life. You just cling to hope--I prayed a lot--rely on others and time to do the healing and in time things look better. But it doesn't help when you are in the middle of it. If you'd like I'll pray for you. (hugs)

Ack...motherhood is a trial sometimes(my daughter is going through some painful "boyfriend" issues and I really don't even know how to help her get through it, myself), and life can be tough. Sorry to hear things aren't so easy on your daughter and yourself right now.

Thinking of you...
