I defy anyone to say that prayer does NOT work....I just got off the phone with my daughter and she wants to come home! I don't want to rush things and I still have a lot of anger and hurt but we promised to be civil and talk and not throw accusations.....it's a time of healing and growing for all of us.....I know this is a difficult time as she is only 18~~we have all been there...BUT I hope to slowly mend things~~~when she was a little girl as I tucked her in at night I would always say " I love you bigger than the sky" to which she would reply " I love you bigger than the universe"~~~that's what she said as we hung up the phone tonight~~baby steps>>> I knew in my heart this was so out of character for her~~~but was afraid I might be wrong.......
I know how I raised my child~~~I hoped and prayed it would somehow, some way shine through and it did....
Now let me say I hesitated to blog about this but my husband encouraged me to do so because he felt I would get the support and strength I needed...so I did and he wasn't wrong....the overwhelming compassion and support from all you bloggers is unbelievable!! I wish I could spend time with each and everyone of you having coffee and chatting about life~~~we all have stories, we all go through difficult times.....You have ALL been there for me and that will NOT ever be forgotten! Tomorrow is a new day~~~and a new beginning~~~~
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Thank You doesn't even seem to cover the emotion I feel for all the support you have given me! I promise to come by and visit each of you~~for now I am just thankful to be heading in the right direction again!
PS Sam~~~I love you bigger than the sky!
With all my heart and soul my thanks to all!!~~~~~Lisa xoxoxo
