I Did Sign Up For This

When I had children I signed up for the long haul. Little did I know. I would do it again; I love my children. Having children can be very rewarding and happy, it can also be draining and full of heartache.

Kenny is home with us now, although I have to drive him 4 hours to court once a month. I am giving him his meds trying to make sure he takes each dose. He is working at our house doing much needed stuff around the yard. We get Aqua when the other Grandma works so he can spend time with her. It's better than him being homeless and hungry.

I know some of you are asking why is he back home?!? Kenny has been rediagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. It's been very interesting to watch. He's happy, he's sad, he's angry, he's in another world, all with a matter of mintues. He can't focus on anyone thing for long amounts of time so he has little projects started all over the yard. He does get around to finishing, just not in my time frame, that's okay. He can focus on his writings. He could sit and write all day. I think I would love to read what he has written some day.

These are pictures of when I picked Kenny up to come home. Aqua hadn't seen him in 4 months.

First Mother's Day I have had my 3 sons and Lily together for years. Just missing our oldest daughter Brittany and her baby Sedona.


  1. Those pictures are precious. I'm thankful he's back home and I'll pray for peace in your home. (My grandma had paranoid schizophrenia.)

  2. What wonderful memories to capture on film. Mental illness is such a daily struggle, and I'm so in awe of you. I'll continue praying for your family.


I really enjoy comments and hearing from new people but if you are here to complain or challenge my personal thoughts and feelings go elsewhere. How is that for blunt!
