That's how I feel at this very moment. I was already there before family counseling and that just made the desire to escape even greater. (deep sigh)

I got Isaac off with Meg for the morning and spent the time updating receipts and then doing some more budget reviews. I still have about a dozen to finish up tomorrow. I also enjoyed a good movie on PureFlix called "Touched By Grace".

Great story about accepting each other, special needs and all.

When Isaac arrived home about noon it only took him about 10 minutes to start spewing angry words. It wasn't even about new things....same ones. Deception/Trust Unkind/Kind Unbelief/Belief Tim got home for lunch about 12:45 and then took Isaac with him for the rest of the afternoon. I just couldn't do it today.

Family counseling was at 5:30 and that turned into a session about Maegann not wanting to be home because of Isaac's behaviors. I now know that my next conversation with Michael will be about Isaac so he can have some understanding of the social/communication barrier.

Once home we had leftovers for supper and now I'm supporting Maegann's homework efforts. She's doing a great job....gets so down on herself for no reason. She is beginning to feel stressed by projects and finals that are coming this month or first of next.

And then there is this darn knee. It is so stiff and sore this week. Just throbs all the time. Tomorrow I am going to try and do double the stretches and see if that helps.

So, to turn this day around before the sun sets fully....

    First off, I am so delighted to see that you turned such a negative day into a positive one before the day was out and that's beautiful and I am so proud of you for doing that!!!

    Second, yes, that movie Touched by Grace was a GREAT movie and I don't know who loved it more, me or you.

    Third, Sir Isaac, doesn't get it yet and I know of his special needs, but this has been far too long in order for him not to get it. In fact, I know that he does get it and he is just acting out which is not an option in my book and I know how it causes you so much more stress.

    Fourth, Miss Maegann stated that she did now want to be home because of Isaac's behaviors. That has to hurt not only you as a mom but Isaac too if he would take the time to see. Now, if I am not mistaken Michael has a family member with special needs too and it is a wonderful idea that you choose to talk with him and let him know of the social/communication barrier.

    Fifth, school is almost over and Miss Maegann can have a break and won't be so stressed out from all of her projects.

    Girl, I know that you know that GOD has ALL of this but there are times even when I cry out, "Really God?!!!" It's a natural thing because GOD has this THANG!!!!!

    ((Hugs)) I may not personally know your struggles or can feel the stress you are feeling now. I do know that stresses come in many forms and what ever difficulies that has been given you and your family, you are communicating and getting assistance.
