no, not around my house (!), around this blog. Sorry for the silence. I have much to write about, but am in the throws (that isn’t the spelling of the type of “throws” I mean, but I’m too lazy to look it up right now) of things around here, so there is little time to write. I am sure that I will forget much of what I wanted to say by the time I have time to say it.
I have started attachment therapy with Sedaya. I know that she has been home for over a year and a half, but I couldn’t do it at the same time as Elijah’s, which only finished around Christmas and then I didn’t want to start it when I knew it would be interrupted by things I couldn’t control or change, so I waited. I also didn’t realize that she needed it until earlier this year.
So, we are in the thick of it now and it is working. For those of you who have done attachment therapy before, you know that when I say it is working, I mean that I am living in H-E-L-L right now!!! I kind of knew going in that giving Sedaya’s personality, chances were that this would be fast and furious, and the furious part is accurate…we’ll have to see about the fast. I’d love to be done in a month or two, but we’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, I am getting through by repeating cliches and scriptures to myself:
“It has to get worse before it gets better.”
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
“One day at a time.”
“This too shall pass.”
“The sun will come out tomorrow.”
“She loves me, she loves me not!”
“No pain, no gain!”
“No guts, no glory.”
“Fear not, for I am with you.”
“Nothing worth doing is ever easy.”
“Tomorrow’s a new day.”
“God does not call the qualified. He qualifies the called.”
“I will survive!”
