And Mama Bird Sighed
June 12, 2011 § 5 Comments
Yesterday was heady post though I tried to make light of it. Despite the milestone of actually telling Son that I had no thoughts about the situation he had found himself in, I was in fact deeply concerned about this continuing pattern.
It’s not that I want in any way to come off as uncaring, because I do very much. It’s just that at this point in the game, my two cents, more often than not, usually ends up making matters worse. I had to try being indifferent. I had to just trust him.
Guess what?! It worked.
Son and GF came over today for a swim (I can’t believe they actually got in) and a BBQ. While were in between the two activities we sat in the gazebo and chatted.
I asked them how the roommate situation was going.
In unison they happily replied, “Oh, we found a place.”
And mama bird sighed and smiled, “Good. That’s why I didn’t stick my nose into it, I knew you guys would work it out.”
They then told me about the situation, without the blah, blah, blah, and I told them, only a couple, of my thoughts and offered one or two bits of advice and added how proud I was of both of them for sorting things out.
Trustworthiness first requires trust. *sigh* I wish it hadn’t taken me so long to get that one.
