Oh, Temmie...

I feel so honored & humbled to have been allowed to "hear" you pour out your heart to your son! As a mother, I felt every word, every tear you must have shed as you wrote to him.

Being a mother is like cutting off a piece of your heart & letting it walk away from you. Such a blessing & such a heartbreak!

I admire you so much for how you've sacrificed for your son, how you've loved him as best you could, & for how you're handling this latest challenge. My priest tells me that we all "flunk" parenting, & that we go on from there, relying on grace to do the job. (Adam & Eve had the perfect parent, & they still messed up!)

I know the pain of having a child resent you. I know the agony of laying awake at night, having all the scenes in which I've "failed" my children play over & over in my mind.

May you receive mercy for your failings, may you be encouraged in your efforts, & may your son have his eyes opened to the blessing that you truly have been & still are to him!

You have a good heart, Temmie! You have done the best you were able to do. All things will work together for good.

Shalom, Dena
