Monica P Oddly enough, I am grateful for the silence. After the last two days of high drama and tantrums, cursing and overall ugliness from the “boy” – it has settled into silence. I am grateful for the peace which is allowing me to recoup all of the energy expended. Perhaps I should not stand up for truth and call him out when he is lying to us – I know it would make his father happier, but I am so very concerned that all of the effort put into keeping him clean is for naught. I prayed very hard last night to make sure I was standing up to his lies from a place of love – I am pretty confident that the angels are with me on this. I wish it had not created a rift between his Dad and I but am grateful for the fact that at least he is now questioning some of the recent behavior too. God please heal us each in the way you see fit and as quickly as possible so we can all move on in love.
