my bumper sticker of the week

Take good care of your mind!
you won't miss it when its gone.



my comments on the comments below- I got this story from a dream/ haze early in the morning. I do not know anyone like I described , but I know there are thousands.
I do not blame any one more than I blame us all. if you or someone you know needs to do a better job of being a hands on, fully engaged Dad. do something about it! the next generation of children is too much to lose.

I don't believe all the children are lost or become losers. Mine certainly turned out just fine after those iffy teen years.
I think the absent dad's lose more! I also lost my shirt, n still can't find it...

David -You're right, it could be any town or anyplace around the world. People are so selfish. It's gotta get better someday.

Peace,

I love my kids with a passion beyond this world. They are such an incredible blessing to me.

David, one has to wonder, if a parent could leave their child like that, what kind of parent would they really have been had their body stayed in the house? Sometimes I think it is better for some parents to be gone. That a two parent household is better, under all circumstances, is a myth. I think it depends on which two parents you are talking about. I also think it is better for that child to know the truth, in as gentle a way as possible. And that the abandonment has nothing to do with the child herself. So many children think they are the reason a parent leaves.

I like the bumper sticker -- I can't imagine not having my 3 children. I'm lucky because my wife has to leave town regularly (like now) due to her job. These nights are hectic, but it is worth it all ---

I couldn't have said it better than lady_wisdom!
Children often feel a sense of guilt, and carry that into adulthood. In my opinion, they need to know the truth. If the parent tries to sugar coat it, she's making a big mistake - believe me!
