Separation Is Not So Sweet — Delilah’s Dilemma
For a child, dealing with divorced parents can be a very upsetting and exhausting.
In the case of a loyal listener of Delilah, a young boy is tired of having to be away from his father as much as he is.
I’m writing on behalf of a very avid 8-year-old listener. This little guy really needs to hear your voice. He is struggling, living a life between his mother and father’s house, and all the emotions that come with it. Both parents love him a great deal, and they both have remarried people that feel the same way. He is struggling to find happiness since he doesn’t spend as much time with his father and he misses him so much. Can you please share a few words and song for Grayson to help set his mind at ease? Thank you, Chris
This is what I would tell Grayson: You are twice blessed because you have two families who love you dearly. And even though you miss your daddy, at least you have a wonderful daddy to miss. There are a lot of children whose fathers are not in their lives at all, and I know that because I have a lot of kids who don’t have daddies in their lives. Grayson, you should know you are so loved. And you may wish there were more hours in the day, and days in the week to spend more time with your dad, but I bet your daddy’s love never goes away even when he’s not with you. I bet if you asked your dad, he would Skype with you and call you more often, as often as you need him. I hope you get to spend some quality time with your dad this summer doing all sorts of fun things. And I know you’re going to grow into a fine young man because you have so much love and support in your life. So don’t stress or worry about making a choice between your parents. Instead, recognize you get to love your mom and dad and their new spouses, and they all get to love you back. God bless you, Delilah
