I'm just really sad today. I can't go in Missy's room and see the horrible defiance and not start crying all over again. Yesterday I had a small victory with her in that she let me have her heart. It was through a lot of prayer and work. She came to see herself and asked forgiveness and prayed with me. She was very sweet and happy. Half way through the day she decided it was too much and she's once again grasping for control.
Steve says these kids don't know how to love. Control is their security.
I'm just really sad.
