Today I have a son who is turning 38. He is still finding himself. Christmas of 2007 he asked me to be his “mom”. Now he acts like I’m not alive. I don’t want to be part of someone’s life who doesn’t want to be part of my life. I just feel sad that he cannot move on & that he feels like he has to blame someone for his own actions. He complained to family that he had a bad childhood. He said the reason he acts the way he does is b/c of the way he was raised. The funny part is that he was telling family who was raised by the same parents he was raised by. Now, why is he acting a certain way & the rest of them aren’t? And, if he wants to blame me then the two who lived with me all of their lives should act that way or worse by his thinking, right? That isn’t the way it is in “the real world” though. It is sad to love someone & sit by & watch them destroy what happiness they should have. Life doesn’t last forever. I hope he wakes up soon. I don’t have to be part of his life but I want his life to be happy.
I finally got this layout done from our day out on Monday. We had the best time. We went to the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. The strawberry shortcake in the picture is one that Richard made & Dave took a picture of. He did a great job of getting the picture.
