I am going to attempt to go out to dinner which we never do. The dinner at home is problematical (8 year old) but I might be able to take him to my parents and go to a restaurant near there.
Edit: does not want to go out to dinner. Not in general or with me.
I done my dinners with both my kids home. We wasn't able to talk about stuff with them there but it was a nice evening as a family.
Louis, Hang in there....you can't see what God is doing on the inside. We only see what they want us to see. God always works from the inside to the outside. It is what makes the lasting changes.
I had the same dinner dilemma last...I made supper and we (kids, husband and I) all ate together. For the first time in six weeks he said it was good and thanked me for supper. There have been better suppers in the past few weeks...first glimpse of hope I have seen.
Don't be discouraged but keep on the path...
The kid is a great addition. This is a time, to reflect on the memories, the good things etc.... One of the whole points about the dare is to make the best out of situations that you think have no good to them.
That is part of the challenge.
Thank you all, for those of you who haven't read before, part of my problem is not finishing something that I start if there is no urgency to do so. I am motivated to change my life now, but one of my main prayers (recently made my FIRST EVER prayer list) is to change my heart to follow GOD on for me, not for her. Sometimes I feel that that is whats happening but other times I feel I am doing it for her, at those times I pray, wherever I am
If you can not find a babysitter make it a picnic that way the entire family can partake and you can make another remember when memory.Ask God to give you wisdom concerning your endeavors and He will.BE BLESSED SAINT
