This has been a tragic weekend with my heart breaking for the people of Norway and today hearing about Amy Winehouse. My DD and I shared a love of Amy’s music and both had hopes for her to recover to live a happy life. Sadly, this was not to be. We shared tears for Amy and her pain.
I told both my teens how much I loved them today. Had them make a promise that I know is so hard to keep, to please stay off drugs. Pray to God for guidance always, Love and respect themselves and to use me as that voice of conscience and sounding board when times get hard, no matter how hard. I would be there. The seemingly easy way always turns out to be harder. I would love them forever.
