Tuesday as I was replaying what went down Monday, a coworker just looked at me and point blank said "and how is that working for you? is your worrying and guilt really doing you or Goose any favors?" Oh My Goodness, she was right, my worry, my guilt was/is not doing either one of us good.

I am a firm believer that we all need a swift kick in the arse sometimes.
We get wrapped up in our own lives and our own problems that we forget that in the grand scheme of things, is whatever we are worrying about really important?
You want to know what is wonderful? (well even if you didn't you still are going to find out!) This person said something I really didn't want to hear in a way that made perfect sense and didn't make me feel like a total loser. No guilt. No pressure to listen to what she thought I needed to do.
Thanks to this coworker and several of your comments, I am looking at Goose's counseling as a blessing. This will hopefully bring more peace for her at school and on the home front. I also am *trying* not to put too much of the blame on myself.
If you have friends or acquaintances that can tell it how it is, treasure them, for they are definitely keepers.
**** I would like to share with you all a wonderful post by Tami G of Every Day in Gray - one of my newest followers. I went to her site today -Tuesday- (as you should with any new follower/commenter) and was shocked to fine a very similar post to the one that I had started to form in my mind. I find it amazing and humbling to know that many of us out in bloggy world encounter similar epiphanies.
Make it a great day!
But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. Psalm 3:3 NIV
