Some Ugliness

Today I was ugly. I wasn't the only one, but nonetheless, I was ugly. I am responsible for my own actions. My son and I had a bit of a shouting match and it looked to be taking a very bad turn. Everything is fine now, but being a parent to college age and young adults is a very difficult task for me. The lines seem blurry, the goal unclear. It all seemed much easier when they were younger and I knew my role. It was so clearly defined. I could go into my parenting with assurance and gusto. Now, I am not always sure. Teach me, Lord.

As for Bethany, she is plugging away. God has been good and she worked through lots of things in the last couple of weeks. She is getting her wits about her and looking for what God has for her next. If you think to pray for Bethany, she could use prayer about the direction God would have her go.

Davin's golf tournament is a week from tomorrow. We are really short on everything and it is hard not to panic. God knows, though. I tell myself that over and over. He will not stop providing for Davin's needs. Praise God.

how is it that our society tells people they are grown at 18 when they are sooooo NOT! Seriously, how many 18 year olds can really take care of themselves fully?? Not many that I know. Except for those who join the military and actually much is done for them, they just need to follow the rules. Oh I digress .....

I am with you, parenting young adults is not for cowards!

Hang in there.

Praying for Bethany =)

I hope you find some middle ground with your son. My Taylor is that age and living at home and we seem to have come to some nice compromises which make life run smoothly..so far! ha. Don't you just hate tension with your kids?
