Today was the day…

and it was not a happy one. My husband and I have been struggling lately even more than usual. Sadly J’s birthday was an underwhelming event. His ice cream cake still sits in the freezer along with his unlit candles in a drawer. I hope tomorrow is a better day for us all.

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free when my oldest son went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    I’m sorry. Expectations are hard to deal with.

    I’m sorry too. That reminds me of one of my son’s b-days….where we had the exact same results….ice cream cake in the freezer, unlit candles in the drawer. I hope it gets better soon….and it can. Don’t project….that’s often the hardest part, in my opinion. But once you get somewhat of a handle on that, it helps a lot in early recovery. God bless.

    I am so sorry. Birthdays should be special events – not painful. I’m sorry. We are here if you want to talk.

    So sorry. I know your disappointment first hand. The Holidays are tough.

    Christmas is what I remember most as we would have such hopes & prayers that he would be clean and we could celebrate Christmas like a “normal” family. I remember that we would buy speical gifts for him, one’s that he couldn’t sell or trade for drugs, and they would all be stacked under the tree. Three Christmas went buy and each time he failed to show….until one Christmas he showed up after completing treatment and when he saw all the gifts he couldn’t believe we bought that many for him. Of course, we didn’t, we just kept saving his previous Christmas gifts!

    In prayer for you and all our children.
