It's nice to see that TLP has developed a nice sence of humor. I feel myself being able to go back to the ME that I used to be, without always having to walk on eggshells around him. Last week, I bought an indoor light fixture for growing plants. As I walked in the door, I said, "Hey look... we can grow our own POT at home now!" lol THAT is my old sense of humor coming back. Obviously, we are not going to grow marijuana, and my family knows that I was just kidding. The really cool part is that TLP knew too... and he even laughed. So I was over here thinking today, and given his past history (in his birth-home) it is amazing that he has come so far that I can actually joke about drugs now. Nice. In the past, I NEVER would have made a joke like that in front of TLP. But now... we are having fun over here again... and laughing a bit more.
So.... then I started thinking... and I realized that there has been fifty dollars sitting on my kitchen counter all week. And I realized how awesome it is that I can leave money out in plain sight and not have to worry about somebody taking it. AND then I got to thinking that his dad leaves his wallet hanging in the back pocket of his work pants... IN THE BATHROOM... EVERY NIGHT IN PLAIN SIGHT... and no money is ever missing. More success!!!!!
It's nice sometimes to sit down and look at where we used to be... and see where we are now. Definitely not perfect and we still have some emotional stuff/PTSD stuff and some immaturity coming out from time to time... but all in all... he's doing awesome over here.
Life is good... and I'm so glad that we didn't give up on TLP years ago.
Hang in there...
