I needed to hear this today. I need to take a second, and slow down, and listen to what my girls are trying to tell me. I want them to be able to come to me with anything, Big or Small, forever. Even if I have to bite my tongue, or want to spit nails... I want them to trust me enough to tell me ANYTHING and everything. I know the teenage years are gonna be hard, but I still hope that even when they are in their "my mother knows nothing" stage, maybe they will come to me to still talk. I've made it a habit since the girls were little to sit on their bed at night, and talk. Before bed, when I am snuggling them to sleep, we talk. I am so thankful for those moments with each of them!!
This weekend was kinda hard. I saw a facebook post that hurt my feelings. I don't want to go into too much detail, but I realize that you can't blame yourself for things you have zero control over. I realize that I'm an awesome daughter, and it's her fault she is missing out. I realized that the whole situation has caused me to want to be an even BETTER mother than I am, and I'm already a damn good mother. I realized that I can't stay bitter about it forever, and that some day I will be able to "speak my peace" but not until she is ready to hear it. I realized that everyone made decisions that they thought were the best for Trey and I. I realized that my life is good, and I have a whole family full of people that love me. I realized that everything happens for a reason, and that God knows what he is doing, even when we have no clue. I am thankful for a father who stepped up to the plate, and did a really good job of raising us!
This weekend is KBBF in Helena, and I'm super excited to be going to see Bonnie Rait on Saturday night! Whaaa Hoooo!! Hopefully, I will see some
Let's give them something to talk about!
