The Last Football Game

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Last night I attended the last football game that my daughter will cheer at. It was Senior Night and all of the seniors honored their parents by giving them flowers. It was a bit emotional for me! I was so sad that it was the last game.

I felt bad that I missed so many. I wish I had gone to all of them. When she was in middle school I went to all of them and when she was first in high school, but then I kind of fell away from going. Sara told me she was fine with me not being there, and told me not to bother going so I was fine with staying home for a couple of hours. She usually would have me pick her and a couple of friends up for the night, and sometimes she would go with them, so I knew she was busy and happy with her friends, but I still wish I had gone to every game!

Regret is a horrible thing. I try not to regret all of the missed opportunities with my children. It is very difficult sometimes.

Well now they are almost all grown up. The time went by quite quickly.

I love them and will not miss any more games. She will be cheering at the basketball games this winter. I will go to every one.

    You're so right when you say "regret is a horrible thing". I have many. I also believe we do our best. Give yourself a break and keep moving forward!

    Hi Jen. I hope my suggestion to you helps.

    Not meaning to Jen, We all fail our family at times. The thing to do and you have done, is to recognize that we have done this. The next is to pray and ask Jesus to be with us when we go to apologize to our family. When I fail, I ask Jesus to help to iron all things out so that there is victory rather than defeat. Jesus has often ironed out difficult situations for me that all involved win, sometimes it happens at a later date. Telling people we are sorry is difficult to do, Jesus will help. As I go through the step of apologizing, I pray in tongues [to myself] when there are quiet times in the conversation.

    I have been in 'discussions' when neither the other party or me can agree. So then to Jesus [out loud] I state how I see the situation in how the other party has contributed to the situation and then I state where I stand in the situation. Jesus never fails, He pointed out to both myself and the other how to work it out.

    Jen - trust Jesus to work it out between you and your daughter. Then do the best you can in the future with her.
