SO- I visited my son in jail last night. I was encouraged by what came out of his mouth.
He offered words of change. He was genuine and it made my heart feel full with hope. I am not naive enough to think he is just saying what I want to hear, however, these words have never been said. The actions that he speaks of changing have never been offered. I am choosing to believe that he is sincere, because I know about the good in his heart. I miss hugging him, my arms ache to hug him.
I’m waiting for the sun to rise as I type; knowing I’ll go through this day with a sense of peace. I’m looking forward to spending time with two special girlfriends this weekend. I’m hoping for lightness, joy and lots of laughter. These seem to be lacking and I need them desperately so I can continue to be hopeful for the future!
I’m going to find the good in this day!
