I believe some things, not all things happen for a reason. Tonight or this morning whatever side of the spectrum your on, found myself up for the day at 5am and stirring since 3am. Deciding to check out a few sites to see what I could find. I came across an article I found very interesting and felt I could relate in so many ways. But, like so many moments we come across we usually relate mostly to one side. This time however, I could relate on both. Now, I'm not talking right or wrong just pure emotions. The kind of emotions only a parent can understand. I've been the teenager. I'm now the parent. This is my reason for a very early morning and bringing to a long day. I've had plenty of nights laying awake over decisions I've made. But, nothing compares to the helpless feeling of laying awake over a decision your child has made. The reason I'm posting this is because I feel there might be others in the same position and sometimes in order to understand and learn you have to hear it from different angles.
