Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.  My 15 year old grandson told me today “Get away from me.  I’m tired of you and Granpa both.”  I went in and sat on the sofa.  In a little while he called, “Sorry, guys.” And later he said he didn’t mean it and he felt bad for saying it.  So I didn’t let on that it hurt me.  Poor guy, he’s got a heavy load on him.  He cried yesterday and this morning at the bus stop early in the morning, missing his mother who has very little time for him and his dad (they are divorced) whom he doesn’t see often.  I try to give him so much love and attention.  To make up for it a little.  But I guess I can’t really do that.  My gift to him was not to make a big deal about it, and hug him and tell him I love him when we said goodbye when his mom got home.

  1. Thank you, Goldie. That is reassuring, very much so. And I believe you are exactly right. He called me last night crying and apologizing and wanting me to drive over and hug him. I tell him “It’s all right, sweetie. We’re okay. We’re fine.” He settled down and stopped crying then and said goodnight. Poor boy, it is hard for him I know—-these years and his autism and bi-polar disorder. A friend of mine thinks he may have borderline personality disorder too. I don’t think so, no doctor has ever hinted at that. His doctor is not even sure about bipolar. But something is not right for him. He cries in the mornings at the bus stop, missing more time with his mom and to see his daddy more. They are divorced. Well…..I’ve talked enough. Thank you again!
