This morning I went to Bolu’s university with Gokan, Olivia’s boyfriend. I was pointed downhill and instructed to walk a bit to see a lake while he and Olivia taught classes.
At the end of the trail, I came across a kissing couple and we were all startled by my abrupt intrusion. I would have preferred to just keep on going, except the path ended and I was unsure how to proceed. Awkwardly, I asked them if they spoke English and which way I should go. The guy did speak a bit of English and volunteered to show me. This was a 45 minute mistake that got all three of us lost and muddy.
In the end, I did get to see the lake and a lot of trees and frogs, which he mistakenly (and entertainingly) told me were “forks”. Finally I returned to meet Olivia and, despite being a bit muddy and totally unprepared, I agreed to do two, back to back, hour-long lectures on travel for her English classes. It was surprisingly enjoyable!

This boy ❤️ just the other day I had a conversation with a sweet sweet man at work who I love like my grandfather. He asked me how I was doing.....and how my Bug was doing. I had a moment of emotion come over me and I broke down. I don't talk a lot about my relationship with God because I honestly I don't have much of one anymore. But every so often I'm hit with a wave of emotion and I hear Him. I told my friend "I'm doing well. And my Bug seems good. But suddenly all this makes sense. Why I had THIS child. Why I had THIS boy as MY son. God knew what was ahead for me. Divorce is hard and it's been hard to watch my baby go through this but God gave me this child because he knew I needed him. He is the most loving, sweet, tender hearted child who loves his momma fiercely. He tells me he loves me everyday without being prompted. And on days that I'm having a rough go of it, he tells me non stop. He tells me how proud of me he is, how lucky he is to call me mom and how he misses me as soon as I drop him off at school. But truthfully, I'm the lucky one. Because without him I'm not sure where I would have ended up these last few years." And it's true. His love is unconditional no matter how frustrated I get. We laugh together, we cry together, and yes, we pray together. He's teaching me so much about life and about who I am. And for him I am thankful ❤️
