Hi, Flint ~ I just wanted to tell you that you are a wonderful mom and that it is quite common for family members to put in their 2 cents worth thinking that their way may be better. Thing is, like you said, if they only spent a week walking in your shoes their opinion would come up short!!
I am praying that your prayers are answered and that your son finally sees the light.....I really am.
Oldnews....wow, that is such great news about your son!!! I am so happy for you. Let's pray that he stays clean and looks towards his promising future with his civil service job. What is the latest news on that???
I spent most of today on the phone trying to check into how to get my BIL some help down in FL. He is homeless living in the woods and hubby is going to see him tomorrow. He is going to try to talk him into having a psych evaluation and then bring him to a drop in center where they will give him a bed, evaluate him and then set him up for whatever services he needs to get his needs addressed. I am praying that he will find the help that he needs to at least have some good years in his life. He's already in his late 40's and has had so many years of instability. Hopefully he will be open to the help that hubby will find him.
I would love to see that dance in a bikini....in fact I would join your Flint if it would help get your son on the road to recovery but it sure wouldn't be a pretty sight!!!
Your son's are in my prayers....take care of yourselves and know that you are in my thoughts each day.
Love ~ IG
