Today marks my son’s last day of high school. Just a mere 10 days ago I thought I was going to be losing my baby to the girlfriend in CT. Today, as he finishes his last day of senior year, I am reminded how quickly changes can occur.
Sadly, he is not attending graduation. And his future plans are as yet unknown. We have been robbed of a lot this year. No senior pictures, no graduation happiness, no yearbook, no party, just blah. I am trying not to be sad though. I am trying to focus on the fact that my son is at home. Although he is still struggling with his bipolar (and probably always will to a degree) I am happy to report he is not suicidal; even with the breakup. I hope that in time his heart will heal. I hope that he will find balance in his life. All I can do right now is to keep praying, continue to give him guidance, and support him.
This is certainly an emotional journey, but it is still a journey I get to be on.
