I need to be selfish....

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers over the next couple of days. Life is tough with a teenage son and it seems to be getting tougher. I never EVER thought I would be dealing with some of the stuff that I am and I need strength and guidance - trust me - I've asked Him for help - I think I might need a little extra......

Thanks - I just can't stop crying.

Elf.... my friend AND manager is dealing with a daughter that is in a mental hospital. She lost it. I believe she is 19. VERRRRRRRRRRRY hard on him. I of course do not know your situation. But I WILL pray. I WILL hope that all is alright. THe Bible says "this too shall pass". As tough as it is... this too shall pass. Look as all your hard times now.... it is VERY tough in many ways. BUT.... this too shall pass. We love ya Elf. :)

i'm there for you, Elf. just to potentially help you smile and give you a little lift, i hope you'll hear me when i say this:
you can be the perfect parent and still have teenagers who make you want to scream.
i was one of them, and so i speak from experience.
pot-smoking, school-skipping, keggers, and worse are common, even amongst the 'good kids.' i ran with the jock/cheerleader crowd. we were supposed to be the examples for the others.
we weren't very good examples.
but we all grew out of it enough to become adults. we all stumbled upon our 20's, learned to prioritize, and realized how awesome Mom and Dad
can be.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

hugs and prayers.....I have a 14 year old son and while he's pretty good right now, I"m not anticipating that will stay the same. Hope things settle soon and you can deal with it....
