Oh, I hope not

Ever been relaxing, reading a book, drifting off to sleep and have a bone-jarring thought?
I did last night.

What if she's pregnant again?

Could that be why no one has seen or heard from her lately?

There are other explanations, of course. I sure hope so.

I have had those jarring thoughts, how strange how it happens, especailly to us mothers of addicted children. I will pray that God will shine light and love to surround your daughter and you also.

After living with the trauma of loving someone addicted to drugs, I think it is almost like PTSD, we end up with those automatic negative thoughts and I still get them. Out of nowhere some horrible thought comes into my mind and I can't shake it.

It could be. I hope not for everyone's sake, but it's plausible.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

I hope not too.

Marsha said...

Have you heard anything more? I've often found those gut feelings are more of a sixth sense.

I don't put too much stock in dreams...but that's me.

I really just wanted to tell you I am finally starting Middlemarch. You left a comment a year ago about it, and I said at the time I was going to read that darn book! It might take me a year..it's a thick book..LOL

I envy you, Lou! I need a big fat book right now to get lost in...

"We mortals, men and women, devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time; keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips, and in answer to inquiries say, "Oh, nothing!" Pride helps us; and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our own hurts – not to hurt others." ~ George Eliot, Middlemarch

And Mom, Fractal, Pat, Marsha, Barbara, All - Thank you for your thoughts - I haven't heard any more from daughter - and the few friends & family I mentioned this thought to basically all said "I've been wondering the same thing!!" - Sigh.

I have another blog post I hope to right soon - soon as I have breathing room and am feeling more reasonable - BUT, in the grand scheme, all is going well, more laughter than tears - much to be said for having a wonderful husband, great family & friends, and a great boss and company to work for - and you all (I have blogs to catch up on!)

"What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult to each other?"

I've found it best not to project. I can imagine all kinds of things but the facts are what count.
