We’ve been having a hard time lately with one of the kids…some of you know what is happening and some don’t. For those that do I would appreciate your co-operation in not discussing details here. For those of you who don’t, please don’t ask! This post is about reminding myself that we are in fact making progress and have taken some steps forward, no matter now small. When we inevitably take 10 steps back I can come back and read this and remember that there is hope and that we CAN and WILL do this and get through the other side. It’s so far been an emotional roller coaster that is draining, exhausting and downright disheartening at times. The small victories mean a lot and offer us a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel.
Today was a GOOD day. For more reasons that one. Here’s a brief summary:
No phone calls
I had a win…in fact I had several.
Someone now knows that I am smarter than the average bear
Major meltdown was averted
I was, and still am, IN CONTROL all whilst maintaining an illusion to the contrary
Today was a GOOD day, and there will be more….bring ‘em on!
