Thank God my son doesn't have any children or a steady girlfriend, so what's his excuse for not calling me or even returning my calls? I am grateful that he financially contributes to my well being faithfully. Lord knows, I'm struggling. But should money be a substitute for your time? I live in a different state so visiting is not an easy option. Never thought I'd see the day when I'd ask him to come back home to live! LOL Guess it depends on what lenses you're viewing your particular circumstances and where you spiritually stand?
I guess what goes around, comes around. I can remember being newly married and being so involved in my marriage, kids and job. Nothing else seemed to matter beyond that. I also remember my Grandmother, who raised me, being very resentful that her grandchildren didn't spend time with her. She told me upon her death bed "Loneliness is a bitter pill to swallow and you too shall drink from that cup. To assume otherwise is the arrogance of youth speaking!
Also, I can't forget (LOL) that NEED MO IS A MUG! I'm working real hard on re-developing my support groups and polishing/fine tuning the many gifts God gave me.
Just needed to vent!
