Hi Glenda: Seems you are where I want to be when my Dad has gone to be with my Mom. I have already told myself that with the years I have left that once all the probate stuff and selling of the home was done that my life would be with my spouse and I would seek to get my own life organized and hopefully find the retirement place for me in the event I survive my spouse. My family just does more and more hurtful things as well, and I watch my Dad in pain. Tomorrow is his oldest sons birthday, and Dad has sent cards for 4 yrs. and no response from him. Dad said he decided to just quit. I don't blame him ---- that old Southern Baptist in me that says to do the right thing no matter what others do - to return good for evil really can knock you for a loop, but you're so right --- you and I too deserve not to deal with their pain that they too will have to deal with --- it will come out one way or another. Not that I want to see my family hurt - but I don't to the life of me see how anyone could treat anyone as if they are of no value at all! I will be happy for you when you have it all behind you. You'll get through this --- so will I!!! Money and "things" !!!! Heart????
God knows what is best, and we are all his chilren --- so your comfort and your new "norm" is soon to come! God Bless You!
Love & Prayers ........ Vickie
