Thanks to all who posted and said prayers. He is at work. His dad called and he was too busy to talk but said his phone had been out. I think he is a little upset with us for making a fuss and he is still having a tough time, but he should have found a way to get in touch with us. However, he will place all the blame on me.

So happy to hear he is OK. Of course he will blame you, that is what moms are for.

So glad he is okay too. I know the feeling of frustration older kids feel towards us for being concerned...but moms do know their kids and he will will experience the same one day as a parent if he has kids. I hope everything else is okay.

You did "Good"

I think you were very good at trying to find him. He probably found it difficult to go to a family gathering. Make it known to him that you also need reassurance and to just call you if he is not showing up as expected. When he does call, don't make it hard for him so that way he will not avoid getting in touch with you - or your husband. You did good Mama! I am glad for you.

They just don't see it.

Our kids just don't see things the way a worried parent does. You certainly should have been concerned about his safety. Never mind that he's a little upset with your worry and places the blame on you. You're a smart mom and know that he was wrong... not you. Hopefully some time very soon he will learn to be more thoughtful. Hugs to you! You must feel so relieved!

So glad to hear he is safe and sound!
Sorry the blame will be put on you though. My grown children do the same thing to me. One way or another, it's always my fault!

When your son gives you a hard time, just tell him you love him and let it go. You did what any loving parent would do under the circumstances. My son does not come to see me, but he does communicate with me via texting or FB. If he does not reply for a couple of days, I get very concerned. I see posts on FB from him and know he is okay. When he thinks I am overbearing, I just tell him I love him and let it go. He gets over it. Sometimes though when a person is down, as your son has been, they need to hear that you love them anyway. I'm sure you do communicate that to him, just putting in my two cents.

Glad he is okay. He should be glad that he has family that loves him enough to make sure he is alright! Hope he feels better soon.

I have been very concerned since I read your post and am so relieved to hear he is OK! With all my DD's problems I understand your worry, frustration and anxiety! You never know from one minute to the next if they are not right there with you, what they are doing, or not doing! It can be so scary so often! ((((HUGS)))) and continued prayers!
