Re: Son's Progress
It was good to read your post tonight. It sounds like change might be happening a bit there in Flintland. Smiles.
Change comes slow to addicts... there are so many things to change in ourselves beside not taking drugs. Maybe Son is starting to learn some oof the thinking he has to change. Just stick by your standards... they are solid and they are the ones that Son would want inn place if he himself ever has a child. The truck deal? Well, eventaully, he may realize that the real way to get what he wants is to start saving from his new job for his own vehicle... in a grown-up, responsible, mature way... same as you and Hubby did to buy your truck. Chuckles. he is going to have no choice but to grow up more if he is wanting things. Life lessons, huh?
I have to tell you... the golf course job? My good friend's son worked a gold course and met a lot of people caddying. Many of them were hot shots and big corporate guys. He met them in high school and summers when he came home from college. He was pleasant to them and many said to call if he ever needed a job. Well, guess, what? He is a hot shot, 6 figure salesman for a big old computer company and his way in was through one of those golf course contacts! Never can tell.
Flint, life takes a lot of twists and turns for all of us in various ways. Who knows where Son's life has yet to take him? He may turn out to be the surprise of the family. Never can tell. All we can do is plod along, pray and try our best.
I am really, really hoping this is the turning point for the better for Son and that he stays headed in the right direction. Seems to me that peace is long overdue for you.
