do I have what it takes?
do I have what it takes to hold these hands in my hand and lead them through this amazing journey called life? as a parent, I think we worry about things too much sometimes … kids are much more strong and resilient than we give them credit for … remember when you were little? weren’t you smarter than your parents? I thought I was at times
self-defeating thoughts creep into my mind time and time again because I don’t have their dad to bounce my thoughts off of any more … he’s not here to remind me that everything will be okay … that we’re going to be just fine … Alan was real good at not only keeping me on track, but being real … and giving me that little boost of encouragement I needed now and then
yesterday marked 16 months … and before I realized that anniversary, I went through a period of complete frustration and anger … releasing tension now and then is healthy … crying is very therapeutic … but confusion and emotion together are not good … I have mastered the combination of those two over the years …
so today is a new day – another opportunity to learn more and be better and smarter and make good choices despite what happened yesterday
make it the best day of your life!
