Life has it’s ups and downs for all of us, one day can be a good day and the next, maybe not as good. It also can change in an instant, where everything is where you think it should be and then wham.
We are on a daily basis of ups and down and changes, I think that happens when you have young adults in your home. One moment everything is great with work and school and the next it’s not. That’s also how life is.
Abby in some ways is almost easier than these young women and all the drama that sometimes seeps into their lives. Abby’s only issues right now are taking a good nap and sometimes she has teething pain. Even though sometimes its difficult, I wouldn’t change a thing. Having my daughter back in our home, while she’s going through her divorce and getting back on her feet, is an honor for us to be there for her.
Also having Aubrey still at home, seeing her grow into such an amazing young woman is so wonderful. She is in cosmetology school now and has found her thing. We all hope to find our thing, our passion, and sometimes it takes a long time. How wonderful that at 21, Aubrey is finally finding her way, her place. She has about 120 more hours to go and then she’ll be on the salon floor at her school.
Abby of course keeps us busy everyday and now is saying new words if not daily, almost every few days. She has just learned how to say, bird, fish, ew, yuck, Kyle, Stacy, and elbow. She still loves dancing and is very active, she keeps me on my toes every day.
I am so glad to have her and to know she is right at home here with us. She is even getting upset lately when Michael leaves. At first you wonder will she ever know that we are hers and to feel secure here and before you know it, you see it everyday. She’s becoming a daddy’s girl and her daddy is loving it.
We are now seeing Lizzy and trying to be loving and open with her, to the best of our ability. It really choked me up seeing Michael and her hug, for the first time since early November. Life is hard sometimes and we have to take the changes and go through them, the best way we can. We are loving her, even though we don’t approve of some of her decisions and the way she handled them. But isn’t life a learning process and we are all put into this thing called life and we are given many choices and we hope the way we raise our children, that some day they will make the right decisions for themselves.
More to come later!
