Goodbye for now, my friend


« on: January 15, 2011, 07:43:34 PM »

I need prayers for my children, Athanasia and Sahara. There are serious problems with their living situation, and I can't see any good solution for resolving it any time soon. There are custody issues, children and youth are involved... it's just a mess. Things had been going bad at the end of last year, but I thought a lot had been resolved... however, I just got a letter in the mail tonight, and apparently things are much worse than I could have guessed Cry

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Thank you all for your prayers. There is a court hearing on Friday, which will determine the direction that things will go in the near future. The case worker from children and youth, the grandfather and I are all on the same page as far as what would be best for my daughters, and I think things will start going back in a better direction. Though the way the system works, even in a best case scenario it could take a while to get things worked out.
