Good morning everyone!
How are you all doing this week?
I'm doing fine, other than my toilet is backing up onto the bathroom floor for the 4th
OMG, I have some news to share!!
The internet perv who lured my 16dd and sexually assaulted her was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in jail with time served after 6, followed by 10 years probation, and registry with the sex offender list for our state. I am very happy that he got what was coming to him. However, I do have concerns about what services or programs are available to people like him...IOW, will he receive counseling or therapeutic help so when he's released he won't be a repeat offender?
He made a statement to the court and apologized to my dd and us. He commented that he's remorseful and realizes he has problems and hopes to deal with them. He specifically asked the judge for services such as counseling.
I actually cried after all was said and done and he was sentenced because he apparently has a young daughter who is now a part of the child welfare system and presumably in foster care. I worry about her. Last night I had conflicting prayers or both thanks and well wishing for his orphaned daughter. What a waste of his life. I hope his daughter is able to go on to be something great. And I hope he gets better. And I hope now that this chapter in this incident is behind us, my dd can work on dealing with the anxiety she has endured and get past her nightmares, etc.
Thanks everyone for your support during these past months.
I give you alot of credit. I don't think I could be as kind as you if someone assaulted any of my children. I hope that for his child's sake that nothing happens to her. Unfortately, in the welfare system lots of things happen that you don't always hear of.
Good for you getting passed this. I hope that your daughter has success in putting it in past.
The good in my life is that Chris and I are doing well. Today we woke up earlier then usual and he didn't even fuss about it even though he stayed up till 5am playing video games. He threw in a load of clothes and picked up all the garbage while I made dinner. And we sat down and had a quick dinner before he had to go to work.
I'm also happy that I am sticking to this diet and things are coming easy for me. I haven't had any pop in over a week and it doesn't phase me at all either. The exercising isn't bad either and I love eating healthier. I am having a hard time fitting in 6 small meals a day though, but I am getting there.
The bad is that my uncle is worse and isn't eating. He's been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks now and if he didn't go home for those 2-3 days he would have been in there for a month now. I wish they could find out what's wrong so he can get better and come home.
That's great news about you and Chris!
The good things -- Lamont and I are getting along better. I'm trying my best not to sweat the small stuff. I started back going to the gym this week. Ayaan is my joy. Lashaa is trying out for track. God is good and I am blessed. At the end of this month is Lamont's 35th b-day.
