The Talk

I appreciate all your comments and prayers concerning my dealings with #1 and Tulip. It's been very encouraging to me, even though....you know....this situation pretty much entails most of what you fear for your child. I don't think (maybe I have, can't remember) I've mentioned that Tulip is only 16. You'll have to read between the lines there....or maybe I can help you by saying that it's not just that I'm concerned about becoming a grandmother....I'm also not too fond of the idea of visiting my son in prison or pulling his picture up amongst registered sex offenders for the rest of his life. It's been tough.

But....we had the talk. I feel better. I actually think #1 and Tulip feel better. We had a great Mother's Day and #1 wrote in my card..."I couldn't have a better Mom than you." So....considering all that's transpired in the past few weeks....I'd say that's a major affirmation from him. On the other hand, if he knew I were writing about all this on the world wide web....I'm sure he'd have a few other choice words for me. But....this blog is about ME. Not him. He just happens to be a major piece of my struggle right now. And yet, I may delete all of this stuff about him before long.....if I get to thinking about it too much. I don't know.

That's where I am right now, today. That's all I got right now. (yes, i know that's a grammatical error)

love,
grace

I wouldn't worry about him getting arrested. In most states the older person has to be at least 4 years older than the underage person before they will prosecute. Certainly there are things to worry about, but don't let that one weigh too heavily on your mind. Hope you're feeling better.

Glad to hear things went well with the two of them Grace. With all the aggravation and struggles we deal with, life always seems to work itself out...

Whew... you've had a lot of headaches and heartaches lately. No envy here. But your situation does prompt a fierce examination of how God desires for us to learn through things... through how we handle them. Because obviously He always knew we'd make messes of things.

I do know that He knew you could handle this (as a woman of faith and as a mom) because He would never give you more than you could bear.

Thankful for your example through trials...

Thank you guys for the support and encouragement. It really does mean SO much to me. And the prayers I know you are praying....are worth more than I can possibly express. I know GOD is in this...just as He is in every situation we face. I'm doing my best to allow this situation to belong to #1 and not "highjack" it with my own agenda. He needs to learn ALL that he can from it and I need to ALLOW God to work as only HE can. This is the difficulty and the reason I must stay tuned in to the Holy Spirit...so that I can be part of the "help" and not add to the "problem".
Thanks again for being there and chiming in.
love,
