Hey you guys, I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while. My son just spit it out to me to ask for a break from my concentration on my site and my cause. It took my breath because I’ve never once thought of asking for a break with a project I took on all my own. I’ve never thought of a reason to ask you to take a break from it. Then my son lost his best friend and past roommate Parker. She literally just celebrated her 22nd birthday. I’m old enough to be her momma.
It just left me speechless when he told me this on Tuesday. It was when I came home from the clinic. Bam! It couldn’t have happened to more normal folk than us. When I tell you that’s the last thing I expected to hear. I mean just that. That’s the last thing I expected to hear. It has worn me out and has torn me down. I didn’t know Parker fully in the now, but I did know her in a sense. She was my son’s best female friend going back to his early middle school days. I’m old enough to have been her mom myself. That by itself is enough to grief the heaviness of the matter.
I do know that it has ripped my sons soul apart. In more ways than one. All I can do is try to move forward bringing him with me. To leave him behind I wouldn’t dare. And to think here I was thinking about closing down my website. Although I’ve had no donations to date, I’m still pursuing my dream of helping others. I want to shout out a thank you to Kathy, you know who you are. Had you not reached out to me I would have made the dumbest mistake. Closing my website off to those who need now more than ever I can’t turn my back on. Nor will I.
