God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

I just read a friends blog that always inspires and amazes me. It made me take a deep look into myself. I truly wish that I could have a long talk with my youngest. He is about to make a huge mistake and I know he won't talk to me.

I've been trying to get him to talk to his grandmother but he won't. I feel that he is man enough to take on the responsibilities he thinks he's old enough to then he's old enough to tell his grandmother. But, I can't seem to get this through his head.

I just pray to the good lord that he will come out of this with few scars and that he grows up from it. But, I think he is going to come out of it extremely hurt and with many scars.

Please keep me and Wesley in your thoughts and prayers. We need them.

He will eventually learn that he does need his mother and the rest of the family. Just be there for him when he finally realizes this. Please know your friends love you and are here for you.
