Hope you find a job soon Steelers. I am trying to help my S19 get a new job. He works but is looking for something else.

He's a good kid and helps as best he can with the kids and pays for insurance and groceries.

Hi, Glam:

Sounds like you have a good kid.

I know jobs are really difficult to find right now. S17 started at McD's and they hired a bunch of people but would only work them less than 10 hours per week.

This new job he has was something that just fell into his lap. He really likes it and they really like him.

I hope your S finds something.

Thanks Steelers. My S19 is in the food business too, but they have made him assistant manager with no benefits and low low pay. Working long hard hours.

I am trying to get him a job where I work $4 more an hour plus benefits and a consistent schedule. Better job all around.

Tell him to call Johnny Rockets if there is one in your area. They have some decent benefits. And they prefer you not have any experience as they like to train their employees but having experience certainly helps.

H texts me tonight and we are having this wonderful conversation and then he texts me this:

"i wish i could erase every evil thing i've ever done and just be happy with you"

does this mean he is having a hard time coming back home? he knows i have forgiven him. he told me he really loves me and i am the only one for him. he sure likes to punish himself.

Hi Steelers,

.........does this mean he is having a hard time coming back home?
As you said, he seems to mull it over and over. He sure likes to punish himself. Hopefully, he will forgive HIMSELF as well.

Have a lovely week-end.

You know, he just cannot forgive himself and so he lives in misery.

You wound think he would be able to pick up the pieces but it is as if he feels so much harm has been done. Hopefully, God continues to work on him.

My h too. It's so sad when you see someone that you love think so little of themselves. It's also exhausting to try to be the one who can raise the self-esteem. Counseling seems to help my h in this area.
