A Spring And Summer Lost

Category: my country garden | Posted: Sat Sep 24, 2011 8:09 pm

Hello everyone,I haven't been able to be on here hardly at all this spring and summer, and I have missed it so bad, I love all the help and trades everyone has done with me, But this summer has been the worst I ever had, I love my grand kids more than anything in the world, but they have taken over They won't listen they have no respect, and my son lives here and he just got divorced, so he wants to be friends instead of dad, I try to tell him he can't do it that way but he don't listen either, Well at least he got a job so maybe next year will be better, He says I'm to strict and won't let the kids come out any more, so know I guess I'm the bad Mamaw, I am at wits end,I really have missed you all a lot, So I plan to try and trade seeds and things now,And hopefully try and have a better fall and holidays, My flowers and garden have been my peace ,But this summer I can't even get peace there, But this summer I'm just so depressed I don't know what to do,I shouldn't let all this bother me but, I think I have lost the last little bit of sense I had left,Thank you all for listening, and it's good to be back to my friends.

We can only do our best Margie and sometimes these things just iron themselves out all of their own. I guess my only words are to concentrate on the things that make you happy the most. An unexpected blossom or a happy bird's simple tune. The good things that nature surprises us with. Don't know if this helps. Take care Margie.

Hi Margie! It sounds like you have been through a very hard time this summer.I agree with Frank...concentrate on things that make YOU happy.

Hi Margie, You have had it difficult. Each of us handles stress in different ways, you may need to seek out a counselor, which is NOT a bad thing, they are there just to listen and give suggestions on coping with these issues. We all need to have a constructive outlet to help us through our difficult times. Gardening is a great way to occupy our time.
I'll keep you in my prayers.

Hi Margie, I have joined Gardenstew sinse you last posted, so we don't "know" each other, but I am sorry you have had such a difficult summer. Kids do tend to act up when parents are going through a divorce/unemployment. Their world gets rocked and they cry out for help in all kinds of ways, some not very productive. I am glad your son is working now.
Counselors are not a bad thing. Sometimes they help. And it might inspire your son to get some help too for himself &/or kids. I also like Frank's advice to concentrate on what makes you happy. My mother used to repeat to herself the positives when under stress. She called it "counting my blessings". Today it is called cognitive-behavior therapy!
