omg... you wont believe what i found in my daughters bed room!
She broke up with her boyfriend about a month ago. she REALLY liked him and he seemed to REALLY like her. But reality is that they are seniors going to different schools, and they are just kids. So they made the hard choice to break up now so that they can focus on the end of senior year and all its activities; they go to different schools, and deal with the heart ache now instead of dealing with it at the same time they are leaving home for the first time. I think it was a very mature decision.... but that didnt make it any less painful. There were so many nights full of tears! Of course, I gave her the typical mom speech: there is nothing to make this sort of pain go away, time will heal it, you have to refocus and find things to make your self happy and take your mind off of it.
So what did I find? I found a piece of paper titled: 100 things that make me happy.... and she has a list started. It was SO flip'n sweet, and Im so proud of her working out the sadness in such a positive way.
