Hope everyone is having a nice 2013.
Mine has been eventful and heartbreaking … trying to figure out how to share or what to say here but it’s just too overwhelming and weird to put into words. I’m not even certain myself what all has happened.
The short version of it is that my son is no longer living at home and not really in contact with anyone in the family anymore (with no end to the estrangement in sight). It’s all super messy and tied up with a number of things … everything from various deceptions … and assorted people with mental illnesses … and lies … and confusions … to … oh gosh, a whole slew of other weird things.
If my family and I are on your prayer list, please continue praying. We’re sort of in the midst of a calm in the storm right now, but at any moment things could change and get super intense, scary, and confusing again.
I’ll keep trying to decide if there’s a way to share what’s been happening … but I don’t want to share stories that aren’t mine tell, or to reflect badly on the parties involved, or to put myself or my immediate family in danger. It’s funny (sort of) how just when it seemed like life couldn’t really dish out anything new that would surprise me, it surprised me.
