Prayer Request Update

Still not sure what daughter is thinking sometimes. She put herself out there on Thursday at school divulging some info that seemed to ask "Will you still like me if I tell you this about me?" I know she’s trying to find if people will be her true friend no matter what. I told her that *we* need to think about a different way to find that out.

No school on Friday so today will tell whether or not things get worse. She wrote some things in her journal over the weekend that seem to say that she is really trying not to worry about what other people say to her or about her, but those feelings of worry aren’t going to go away over night. She’s acknowledging in her writing that her dad and I are here for her.

Other than being sick with a bad cold, she was very upbeat over the weekend despite what went on Thursday. I have to keep an eye for her misleading me though, because she can act that way, but actually just be hiding how she really feels. I can’t let my guard down, but at the same time can’t suffocate her.

Thanks again for the prayers. I don’t normally blog about things so deeply personal and I know I’m being vague, but it helps me to know that she’s being watched even more closely from above.
