I don’t feel strong

“The strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.” ~ Barbara Kingsolver

She's the spitting image of her brother.

My heart can only take so much.  I try my best to refrain from speaking of Will on this blog.  Respect for my children, reluctance to express any thoughts about him for fear my words will be misconstrued in a way that negatively affects my situation, recognizing that I’m not the only person impacted by his actions….there are countless reasons for this decision.  But when I heard that he did not attend his visit with Adam this week I felt as though I’d been sucker punched.  I cried until there were no more tears left.  Especially with my absence, I relied on these visits to remind Adam that his parents did not just disappear.  I’m so torn up I can’t even discuss all of the awful possibilities that went through my head or talk about it anymore at all.  Please pray for my little boy.

Bonus points for having my favorite roomie and my favorite daughter in one picture.

Thank you, Megan, for coming by to see us this evening.  It’s been over a year since I last saw her in person so it was particularly meaningful getting to spend some quality time catching up on things.  Megan and I have been close since junior high– I can count the number of friendships I have from that era on one hand– and it’s so comforting to be around people who knew you when your biggest worry in life was being grounded from a group movie date.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
