Only love, can make it rain...

It is raining bits of ice in my corner of the world today. The road are a mess of sleet, sluch snow and ice. Shouldnt be complaining really this is the first bad wintery day we have had here this season. And it is Valentines Day. My cousin who is equally as bitter and unhappy as I am called to tell me, "Happy F-ing Hallmark Day!" It made me smile and laugh.

I spent some alone time with the Prince last night. We went shopping to buy his girlfriend a Valentines Day gift. He told her about the latest relapse. I am proud of him, he doesnt usually tell her. She was really upset and didnt speak to him for a few days but she forgave him and is still standing by him. He seems back to his old self, much calmer, nicer and less angry. I am going to try to remain hopeful that he is serious this time and I told him he can always count on me to support him and help him in any way I can to stay sober.

Sometimes I forget how much I love that kid.

Happy Valentines Day to all my blogger buddies......

As long as that kiddo of yours knows you will support , not enable him , every relapse and try again he is a lucky human being.

I chuckled when you wrote at the end sometimes you forget how much you love him.That is understandable.

Valentines is over rated for sure...commercialism all the way.
Still at the end of the day,all we want is to be loved..keep learning to love yourself and be ready for when true love comes a knock'in :)

Thanks for sharing ~

Hi Kel--
I log onto your blog almost every day. At my women's meeting Monday, we read Step 6, which talks about humilty as a desirable quality. I admire your humility and also your self-awareness. I know what you mean about forgetting how much you love your son. I discovered an old cassette of baby movies from 13 years ago, and the scenes were so sweet and innocent, and I sounded (from behind the camera) so loving. I thought - I really am (or was?) a loving mom. The last couple of years have been so combative that it's easy to lose sight of the unconditional (maybe) love that is at the core of our relationships with our kids.
