Today was a tough day. I have three precious sons going through a lot of emotions & a huge adjustment, as well as being in a similar spot myself. My oldest son is needing more down time & discipline, another is needing snuggles & comfort and the other is just full speed ahead! I am so thankful to know we are being prayed for, as I ask God for wisdom to parent each of my little guys. I am trying to observe all I can about them each day & then prayerfully consider what their needs might be/ how they can best be loved & guided according to their different "bents". I am re-reading many parts of "The Connected Child" on the fly.
I am really missing John today. He is my best friend & we are a good team together & this is a time I really would love to be with my team mate! We are trying to wait for him to leave until we hear something from the Embassy...we'll see...
Tomorrow is a new day. God is in control. (Yes, I am reminding MYSELF of this as I type!)
Oh, as far as what we did today, it is now "hurry up & wait". I did feel really good about being able to sit down with all three boys & draw a picture of our family, complete with our two dogs. I labelled all the family members & wrote down the three countries we are from. Luke kept the picture & I hope it might be a comfort to him tonight. He also drew a picture of all of us on an airplane flying home to USA. I know he is thinking about that & feeling apprehensive.
I am so grateful to know you are praying. I feel weak & know that I am NOT enough in this situation. I am thankful to know Who is & I am trying to really lean on Him.
Thank you dear friends & family! Hugs!
