Answered prayers

Our son called home yesterday afternoon. DH said he was never so happy to hear "Hi Dad" in his life. (DS had been using his first name and not Dad in the last communications we had with him over 2 months ago). They talked for over 2 hours and DS is finally ready to get this worked out and start the healing. He also is heading home for a visit. He ended up leaving there late last night and should be here later this afternoon.  I am so glad. I think some face to face time, after all this, is much needed, rather than just phone calls back and forth.  I don't know what made him change his mind all of a sudden, but I have been praying for this day for months now. It feels like such a huge weight has lifted off of my shoulders.


  1. I am so glad for you. I hope the visit goes well and you forgive him and he goes back to being his old self just the way you raised him. Your prayers and your daughter's customers' prayers seem to be answered. How nice!

  2. AMEN! Glad to hear your prayers have been heard. You know, you can have many different friends and acquaintances throughout your life who will come and go, but family is the one steady constant in your life. They are your family forever. Hopefully the son is coming to realize this. When you can't count on anyone else in the world, you can usually count on family. Here's to a good visit with the son. Keep the lines of communication open. :-)

  3. Best news I have read so far today! The visit will hopefully be just the first step in healing the breach.
