My m-i-l returns tomorrow after a month of being gone following a shoving incident (she shoved me). I cannot tell you the amount of dread I have going into this - the woman is mean, gets joy out of being hurtful. She was nothing like this prior to the alzheimers, so I have to consider that the disease has made her mean. Whatever the cause, she comes back tomorrow. I ask for your prayers, that I will be able to care for Mae in the spirit of the Lord, do it as unto Him and not allow the mean remarks to get to me. I don't just want to provide for her needs, but take care of her well - a challenge, but then, the Lord can handle any challenge, can't He?! Thank you for your time and prayers.
