SOMETHING THAT FILLS ME WITH LOVE

These two fill me with love. This is an old picture (1994) Justin was graduating from high school. And I had not yet become estranged from my oldest son. They are as different as day and night. As different as hot and cold. As different as sons can be. I love them both. I wish we could fix this family. That day will come I am sure. They fill me with love and I am grateful for both of them, in one way or another!

  1. They have the same eyes... their souls are intertwined. My family is estranged as well because I haven't had a relationship with my sister in about 8 years... at times I think "What in the world are we NOT talking for" but then I remember how calculating, manipulative and negative she really is and then I'm glad that's not part of my life anymore. It would be such a forced relationship that I don't believe would be natural feeling.... :( I can't, however, imagine losing that relationship with my own children.... i know that leaves an empty space inside... I hope time helps heal the wound but never fills the hole until your family is made intact again.

    1. Actually their eyes are different colors: Danny has green and Justin's are blue. I understand about the sister issue too...I have a sister and one brother that don't communicate with me anymore. I know why, but life is too short for all the game playing. And I am just tired and need to move on. It has been 6 years with Danny and our family. I'm not holding out much hope!

  2. A mama's heart is always filled with her love for her children. I'm sorry that there is a problem, Paula...but I know that your love is still felt by your oldest...whether he knows it or not.

  3. They are handsome! I hope the family is fixed one day, Paula. It is hard to not have a close relationship, especially with children.

    1. They are handsome aren't they? I hope it is fixed too. But it has to be fixed inside out before we can move on

  4. I pray he finds his way back home soon and is able to slay all his demons. Stay strong Paula.

  6. Justin looks just like you! I hope things will one day be repaired between you and your son. I've read your blog long enough to know a bit of the issue, and it's a difficult one. You're doing the right thing. I pray it gets better!

    1. Everyone tells us how much Justin looks like me. And Danny is very much like his dad. Thank you for the prayers. It is a bit of an issue for sure
