Light in darkness

Borrowed this from Gypsy.

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

Last night was hard because TC did not want to go to school today. He cried and screamed, hit himself and cried some more. (And he cursed a lot too).

Trying to talk to him and calm him was tough. I ended up in tears too. Why does it have to be so hard for him?? Why can't we get past these bumps and find a smooth road for God's sake??

So I came to work and I was crying (to myself) and I was quiet for a long time. I was grieving a little bit. I was very sad and distraught.

But I received a few encouraging words from blogger (and facebook friends),and I realized it will be okay.

This is just another hurdle but we will get over it.

My hubby has been a real trooper too, and he called and checked on me (and TC) first thing this morning when I got to work.

I love that man. I am so glad I am not doing this alone.

I know how hard and exhausting it can be, and it gets so frustrating when EVERYTHING seems like a battle to be fought. Just keep reminding yourself that TC is so lucky to have you there for him, and your love will get both of you through this.

Days like that can be so exhausting... last year we had several weeks of daily morning meltdowns with Bitty gripping the edges of the door when we tried to leave the house (and the edge of the car when it was time to get out). It did eventually get better... although there's still days... (((hugs))) It makes all the difference in the world to have that support, huh? btw I love that quote at the beginning of this post!

I am so very sorry that it is so hard for him, cause as a mother, it makes hard for you, too.

Hang there.

IT will get better but I know that doesn't make the process any easier:)
