My Sons

Sunday, April 01, 2012

I have 4 Sons. My oldest is working trying to start a family and has had multiple miscarriages. The middle one has his own business and is struggling in this economy, it is very stressful for him. The twins are also struggling, both are working, one will be laid off by June, the other is in New York and has had his hours cut way back.

I am financially helping the one in New York. There was a point where he had no food in the house.

This economy is very bad, this should not be happening in in the United States.

This is stressing me out, they are my children. I worry for them, and this is putting me in a bind also. I can not say no, I do know they are doing whatever they need to to work.

Pray for my family. I know we all have things that we are dealing with. Lets try to be kinder and more tolerant of others.

    Ohhh dear mother's heart aches for yours! Our children are our children no matter their age! It pains me that society seems to think that by the time they reach majority age of 18 that they are able to stand on their own. I found nothing to be further from the truth. As young adults they need our protection and our wise teachings well into their 30's.

    I am praying for you and your family. I know that you are stressed worrying over their situation. The world is a harsh place right now...more so for our children than it ever was when we were growing up!

    All you can do is encourage, encourage, and encourage some more. I have found that what we tend to focus on is what we seem to bring into our world. I find that when I really put a lazier beam of focus on the good in my life...or the good I am entitled to and expect in my life that is what the universe serves up for me.

    I'd tell you to think of your children in the life you WANT for them. Your oldest son with a happy, healthy child. Your middle son with a healthy thriving business and your twins in a secure job with a healthy future.

    I'm going to envision each of them in exactly this way. Remember the mind can move mountains and our focus IS our reality.

    I can sooo relate with your middle son struggling in business...but I always say where's there's a will there IS a way. Business is just people helping people..if you are good to them and make them feel important they will bring their business to you.

    Blessings and BIG love are being beamed your way! God bless and keep you during these stressful is going to get better. The grass roots movement of our young people who are organizing to stand up for their rights is right around the corner...I say VIVA young and you alone will make this a better world!

    Chris my heart hurts for you. I am keeping good thoughts that each of your sons finds their way through these hard times. As I know you know, we need a President who understands how to create jobs. His agenda is destroying the USA, which use to stand for hard work and personal responsibility. Our children are being robbed of the jobs we use to take for granted. Government, get out of the way! In my part of the Country the EPA basically destroyed our jobs in the name of a bird and a fish. Unemployment is 15%.

    Of course. Some prayers, some good wishes, and a vote this year that will get us on the right path again.
