P3 Day 10


I had a rough night with Nicholas last night.  He’s been pulling some seriously sneaky stuff lately and so Aaron and I had to deal with it.  I went to bed angry at Nick and woke up still angry.  I just don’t trust my son anymore and I hate this feeling.  I swore that if I raised my kids right, they wouldn’t be pulling these kinds of stunts, and I think I got my wake up call last night.  I think that I try to give God control of everything else in my life except for my kids, because I can handle my kids.  I need Him to handle everything else, but I got my kids.  It was like a slap in the face last night to realize that I haven’t given control of them over to Him yet. 

So that being said, I really wanted to eat last night.  I wanted to eat a greasy hamburger.  I wanted to eat some lasagna.  I wanted spaghetti.  I wanted enchiladas.  I wanted anything to help stuff this anger down inside and bury it under a pile of food.  I didn’t give in and I’m glad now that I didn’t, but it was hard.  Being a parent is even tougher than trying to lose weight.  I feel like a failure.

    Oh friend, I’m so sorry. (hugs)
    I’ll will be praying for your son.
    Despite your awful night, you were strong and didn’t eat because of your emotions, that is wonderful!♥♥

    Don’t feel like a failure, because you’re NOT! God loves your son even more than you and wants the best for him. Lift your son up to our Father and be at peace.

    Love you!!

    I ate it for you. Remember, I just got my drops today. We are going to be an awesome team; you, me and Erica. Nick will turn out to be just fine, because you care with all of your heart. If a child never stumbles, how do you, as the parent, grow to accommodate for the next screw-up? Somehow, we are all in this together. Love you, Mommy
