He's doing pretty good these days
He's a handsome young man and I love him with all of my heart. He started a new job this week. The bad part is 2 days before he started he caught a flu type bug. He worked the first day and did well aside from losing his lunch a few times. His boss told him that he appreciated his desire to continue working but he was sick and needed to get some rest. He stayed at my house that evening. He slept the entire time except when he got up to eat some chicken noodle soup prepared by his momma.
He is going back to work today. The good thing about his new job is that he knows the owner of the tree service company. They went to school together and are the same age. But the best part of his boss is that he is a married family man with a daughter and twins on the way. He is also a God fearing man who attends church with his family. This will be a good influence on Ryan to see what he can have if he takes care of himself. He told me that last night and I was so happy to hear it. I told him that he needs to surround himself with sober and honest people. He quickly agreed. He also told me something he has never said before. He said, "Mom, I'm gonna do it. I look forward to paying my rent on time and being responsible. I am not a kid anymore. I am almost 30 years old and it's time that I became a responsible adult." Oh my. I told him that I have been waiting years to hear those words from his mouth.
Yep. I think that maybe, just maybe he's got it this time. I pray every single night that he does.
