A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Not Saying

Remember when you were told, "Unless you can say something nice, don't say anything at all"?  Well, that's where I am right now. 

I didn't hear from Sweets for three days.  Two calls were not returned.  On Thursday, we did talk on the phone and I was able to wish her Happy Thanksgiving.  She seemed to be doing all right, although she was full of "I miss you." 

Today she called and said her dad said she couldn't come to my house this weekend.  She said it was because she told on her dad to a person of authority in Lil Sis's case.  I talked to her dad, and he repeated that she wasn't allowed to come to my house, saying Sweets was not listening to him and that she said she hated Lil Sis.  Keep in mind, these two girls have never been able to go more than about an hour without getting into a fight, even with good adult supervision.

I'm worried, but praying hard.  Although Sweets is most worried about missing our Thanksgiving celebration on Sunday, I'm more worried that this is the start of something else.  I'm trying hard to trust God, but this is when I want so much to be in control and it is so obvious that I am not!

  1. So sorry for your uncertainty and uneasiness about this situation. Hoping you and Sweets are together again soon and that her dad will realize the importance of your relationship.
