Instead of keeping all the positive "mom thinks you're _____" I decided to throw in "because I'm an awesome kid. etc" It was on one of those times he broke down in tears saying, "But I don't feel that way."
Me: "Well what do you feel, honey?"
Him: "I just feel like a big pile of garbage inside."
I started crying with him because it broke my heart so much and I told him it made me so sad to hear him say that. "Here is what I see. I see a boy who is so cute, sweet, smart, funny, and a good time to be around." He said he just doesn't feel that way. I am proud of him for voicing these feelings because he never has before.
I wanted to share some bible verses with him about what God thinks about him so we read Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
I also shared that even though there is sin in this world and his birth mom decided not to parent him God still has a plan for his life. He hears his prayers and He loves him so much.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. He was so excited he got his Bible and wanted to highlight the verses.
A friend sent me these verses and Mr. Stinky was excited to highlight them too. Isaiah 49:15 "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
Psalm 27:10Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
Tapping for Mr. Happy
Mr. Happy wasn't so happy so I had him tap about it, but he refused so I did it for him. His eyes were so angry, and when I say angry I mean they get scary angry, but when I got done tapping for him they were full of so much sad that it broke my heart.
Tapping is helping our family so much.
