A midst all my pain and frustration I had a bright spot today I wanted ot share.  I have 2 daughters 22 and 19 (1 mo. away from 20).  They both live at home and are wonderful girls.  They don't help out alot becasue they work full time and go to college. 
They get frustrated with me becasue I don't take them shopping anymore and I have more days where I tell them "no" I can't do that then yes.  Well I had asked the girls to please not bring any boyfriends over last week becasue i was in pain after surgery and then yest. my youngest said her boyfriend was coming over last night after she got off work.  Well, I forgot I was going to have my shot so I had to call and tell her I was too miserable for anyone to be over.  Needless to say she wasn't happy.  I apoplogized that I made her life miserable.
The good part...she wrote me a letter today expressing her love for me and how much she wanted me to be pain free, how bad it made her feel.  She wants me happy and able to enjoy life.  She acknowleged my pain, like she understood.  I cannot tell you how much that meant to me.  Most days I feel I have let my family down, and at last....a bright light of hope!
I pray each of us experience something wonderful amidst our pain and frustration. :-)

   We very rarely allow any of our children's friends to come over.  It's upsetting to both us and them but we have found out that it's not the fact that friends cant over that upset them but the why.  I'm so happy that your daughter expressed her thoughts to you, what a wonderful blessing that is.
