    Birthday #19

    Today is my dear son, Mathew's 19th birthday. It's been nearly 2 years since we have seen him and well over a year since we have heard from him. That wouldn't be such a hard pill to swallow if I at least knew how he is doing. I have to hope in my heart that he is well and happy.

    Here are some birthday photos taken over the years.

    Birthday #15

    And my goodness, how things change at birthday #16. LOL.

    Mathew, if you happen to see this WE LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH! Have a wonderful day.

    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!

    Hey darlin... I'm so sorry to hear that you still have not heard from him.. Hang in there darlin, I know it's hard, but thoughts and prayers are with you, that this young man realize what fantastic parents he has. Kids go through that "me, me, me" stage and here is praying that he gets through it quickly.

    Big Healing Hugs to you and your hubs.

    Hi Gerry. Life can be very hard can't it. I have the same situation with my daughter, and I still don't know WHY. It breaks my heart. Much love Lesley

    Sorry to hear that you still are out of touch with him.. going thru something similar with my stepdaughter .. I know some of it is teenage stuff.. and you just let them go and pray that someday they will return with the realization that everything you did, you did out of love.

    Gerry, I can sure relate. I've lost contact with my sons, too. Both got caught up in drug and alcohol addiction, and I spend many late nights sitting in the dark wondering if they are okay, or waiting for the phone to ring with dreaded news that the drugs won. Big understanding hugs to you.

    Hello Linda,
    Thank you for taking the time to surf my blog, and to comment. I’m so sorry to hear about your boys. My heart aches for you too.

    Although it is much comfort to know that I’m not alone in this. Best wishes to you and prayers that they will someday find their way home.

    Also, thank you for the award. I will acknowledge it and pass it on as soon as I get some loose ends tied up.

    Take care.
