Another incident today, accidental, shouldn’t have happened. According to my boy.
Gheesh but a lot of stuff has been going on. I made a statement just a bit ago that problems seem to keep piling up right outside my front door. It just isn’t him, to be sure, it’s a lot of things.
I was concerned when I didn’t hear from him and instead of my usual “Oh Well” this time it took a different turn. What if, because of all the teenagedom angst he is dealing with. Wait, this boy is dealing with a lot more that just teenagedom, he seriously had to deal with some ugliness. Anyway, because of what happened and perhaps he got scared out of his head and did something permanent and stupid.
I cried a tad when I talked to his older brother, saying I just don’t know where his head is at.
When I did talk to the offender, my boy, he made some very interesting and mature statements.
I then told him, “Son, you have this amazing life in front of you, now is the time to look ahead a couple of years and think where you might like to be. Right now, if you keep doing these little mess ups, your whole life can change” Stay on the yellow brick road and look forward.
