Now It's Thursday

Last Update: August 18, 2016

Yesterday "Breaking Silence" became live on Amazon. I am excited about that. My two oldest daughters are in highschool I am not so excited about that. LOL.

I was ready, I swear, I was even excited for them. I'm not anymore they could back to elementary and I would be okay with that. One day in around older boys and they've already got number's, and friends, and admirers.... I am happy that socially they do not face my problems, but I'm so sad by the realization that soon enough they will not NEED my help, but instead they will need me to see and treat them as adults. Which I always thought I would be good at.... Yesterday I swear I saw those little princesses that jumped into lap at some point looking for me to kiss scrapped knees and chase away bad dreams.

One dream came true and a new growth is happening It's a ll good things but over shadowed by that bitter sweet feeling LOL

How do you guys deal with bitter sweet moments?

Hard to say, Jennifer, I've only ever seen it in the children of the two life partners I've had....

There's a kind of shift that is wonderful in one way, and hard to get used to, in another....

I sometimes get that sudden feeling, when they're twens, that they're looking after ME........

My teenagers are shifting from needing me to wanting and deciding how I'll be there.... It's frustrating to relinquish that control lol

You just take it one day at a time and be thankful for every one no matter how it turns out ?

Absolutely. Sometimes I wish I could go back just exist in a moment one more time. But I'm grateful for the memories those moments give

Isn't life funny, how you look forward to things, but then want to go back again. Cherish your memories, and welcome change. Life's all abot change, nothing ever stays the same.
