Where we are today it has been raining and raining and then raining some more.... Kind of depressing but at the same ime thankful for the rain..... Today we have been asking questions, looking for answers and begging for help.... None of which came in he form that we would have wanted at all..... Yes, we are in our final attempt to find you....
It is in difficult times that we realize who out true friends are..... Of course you know who you are and those people would not want me to mention them by name - and you know who you are.... We appreciate your calls, your endless hours on the road with us, you searched on the Internet, your comforting phone calls, your text message and the last but certainly not the least your prayers that God will keep Rocky safe and sound. We know that it is not always possible to be with the people that are close o you but just the thought that those people are thinking of you is comfort enough....
Rocky, just as We know that our family and close friends are with us - even if only in thought - I want you to know that we are with you also. The one big difference is that you choose this way for yourself - we did not. We are not innocent, everything but, but you need to make amends because it will eat you up alive if you don't. One day you will look back and regret the choices that yu make today and then it will be to late. Some mistakes are way more costly than others and right now this is going to cost you dearly.... please come back while we can still help you.....
A few weeks ago someone wrote the serenity prayer as a commen on the blog.... After this week we pretty much have no choice than to accept the inevitable.... You just simply don't want to come home..... However hard it would be o accept, it is what it is.... We made our bed and we have to lie in it.... We have two choices:
- We can take all the blame and have to regret it for he rest of our lives;
- Ask for forgiveness and hope that you will return some day so we can make it up to you
- Pray to God to help us to accept this and ask him to be with you wherever you are
I choose the third option so I would like to mention this again (I added an additional piece that I found on the Internet that I thought appropriate for tonight):
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
As always, we love you and miss you very much.
LOVE, HUGS & KISSES,
Dad and Ma
