Received info that our son was arrested and booked into jail at 2 a.m. today. This, we've seen several times before. However, somehow (not sure how) his prior probation officer obtained a picture of the event. She sent it to me. I've learned a lot over decades of parenting our deeply troubled son. But I was not prepared for the impact of seeing armored cars, and fully-geared up rifles and SWAT team surrounding him in cuffs. This was clearly a big sting and we may just see it on the news tonight. I was unprepared for the emotional impact of seeing that photo. A little better now (first saw it this morning), but.........still processing. I know the story factually. But my heart is still processing the severity of that photo. Will take a little while to absorb. Still leaving on road trip tomorrow a.m. Really looking forward to getting away -- geographically, at least. I'm sure we'll feel refreshed again over the next few days. And, as always, it is my plan to reclaim my gratitude, perspective and joy. Just maybe not today. But perhaps tomorrow. Just gotta keep the faith -- that's the name of the game.
