I don’t often take this spot to talk solely about me. It’s titled Brotherly Love for a reason! But today I need a moment because you are the only people I can talk to. And I can’t even really talk to you…
I was put in a predicament today that has had me all a mess.
A very close friend of mine is apparently going through something. What I’m not sure. I received a phone call today and was asked a bunch of questions but given no information. And I was sealed with confidentiality.
This means I can talk to NO ONE about what happened, including my friend.
We are close. We talk about everything. We share everything. And now I have a secret to keep.
I have a million questions floating in my head that I’m dying to have answered. I’m running the questions I was asked through my mind and trying to make sense of them. I’m insanely frustrated that I was forced into the middle of something that I’d rather be ignorant of.
The silver lining in this is that I got to take off work early and be with my guys. I got a much-needed hug from a terrific friend that I never see as often as I’d like (yes elastamom I’m talkin’ about you!). And my guys never fail to make me smile.
Eli won a t-shirt from the raffle at the ice-cream social at his school last night. He got to go to the principal’s office today to pick it up. A positive note home yesterday and a positive trip to the principal’s office today. This is shaping up to be one fantastic week for him!
Keegan told me I was the best mommy ever and gave me a kiss on the cheek. He told me all about how much he loves mandarin oranges because they weren’t real oranges – which he hates! Then thought I was fabulous again because I told him we had a whole case full sitting at home. I did everything right for this little guy today.
I’m so very thankful for my amazing family and friends. I pray that whatever my friend is going through will be over soon. And I hope that eventually I will be able to offer the support that I’m struggling to hold in right now.
Thanks to all of you for giving me a brief moment to let out the frustrations I’ve been holding onto all day. It’ll help me sleep better tonight – at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
