I know many of you come to visit the blog looking for a little pick-me-up...we'll today I am asking you to pick me up.
I was confronted with a little situation the other day -- where I was approached by someone with an usual situation, one that left me in awe at the moment but as time passes...I'm beginning to be unsure about how to address my own problems. So now I turn to you....my mediocre mom advice may appear at times to be helpful, but I am discovering that when it comes to advice on life in general...that is where I'm lacking.
The other day I had a knock at my door where I welcomed in someone who asked to speak to me and my husband about some things that were weighing on their mind. They took a seat and over the next while proceeded to address issues that they had with me and my family. We responded to them the best we could on the spot, and at the end of the conversation, we were asked (in a non-offensive way) to leave them be...we shook hands and they left my home.
I've laughed, I've cried and I've questioned....What do I do from here??
I know the details are vague -- but only because I still hold feelings for this family. I do love them, I wish my kindness wasn't perceived as acts of pity upon them. I wish my decisions (unknowingly) wouldn't have affected their family they way they did.
I've decided for now...the best thing for me to do is to just smile, pray for understanding (on my part) and for their family as well.
The world is a strange one at times.....isn't it?
If you have any advice or anything to help me understand how to handle such a situation...please share your thoughts....I would love to hear from you, you hear enough from me as it is.
