I feel confident in my decision to go to the graduation party of friends'/neighbors' daughter today; odd to say "confident," I know, but I will explain. Of course, over time, our saga with difficult child has made its way through the grapevine and there are those, who look at us negatively. Personally, I feel we have tried hard to address our issues as best we could. I am aware there will be detractors at the party but will go there, keeping in mind: 1) The family invited us/included us, 2) We are going to celebrate a lovely young woman's graduation/it is her special day. Thanks for listening.
