I'm going back to post the things I missed because of being so busy.
***a little Justin Bieber Fan....its that age I guess!
been to Scout camp for the last week. I am actually cheating cuz I took
this shot before he left but wanted to use it today for my post. I love
this guy more than I feel I can express, mostly because I am not a good
I feel my boy is so brave, venturing off to Scout camp with a
ward he barely knows and doesn't have a single friend to hang with. He
called us the first night he got there with a migraine, of which I have
now writing this out...can't sleep, anyways he was in tears because it
hurts and he wants to come home....not fitting in and misses his family.
We calm him down and wait for what tomorrow will bring, maybe another
phone call wanting to come home and sure enough we get the call after
church. He's ready to come home so we give him permission to do so with
one of the leaders. Gabe then says "no, I will give it more time" "I
can't quit that easy...he thinks to himself" gotta love his tenacity. I
do have to say it breaks my heart to hear him having such a tough time
and how he is a victim to his circumstances. I know he is capable I know
he can do it but HE doesn't. How do I teach him is worth and value? I
can tell him til I am blue in the face but the fact is he has to believe
it himself. It hurts. I can see so much potential in this Child of God.
I only hope and pray that he will see his potential soon so he can live
life confidently and enjoy every moment as he ventures of to the
dreaded junior high experience. Sometimes I think what did I do wrong to
make him believe this but maybe its not me and he was just born this
way. I'm at a loss I'm just not sure how I can teach him to believe in
himself and have confidence. I love my kids more than anything and the
momma bear inside of me wants to take away any pains they experience but
I can't he gets to have his experiences to grow.
