it took 3 weeks or more and my mom called. She didn't remember saying she would call me back. She says she has been having issues (sickness) the last 3-4 weeks, (she was ok when I saw her last) and I tried to make plans with her today, but she cancelled yesterday. When I called her today to check, she said she was better. Idk. Also, I said I missed her, and it would be good to visit, and she said, well you can always come over to visit, & I did tell her, not when you say you don't want company because you don't feel well. I guess I just don't understand..
Thank you for sharing Kel, I am sure a lot of that was very hurtful. And I know, you have worked on forgiving them, but I know from experience it is hard because it is so hurtful.
Being as I was adopted, one of my adopted dad's sister's was asking my mom for some family heirlooms their dad gave to my father. My mom said that she and dad ( this was at his funeral) had agreed everything they had would go to me after they both had died. Dad's sister then said: "But she ( me) is NOT family! My son should get the clock and other items, because these things should stay in the family. So I can sort of relate.... I said to my mom, well give them to her...I would rather have dad alive then some material items. But mom did not give them to dad's sister's son. And I eventually forgave them. They really did not know me, and I understand the concept of keeping items in a 'blood' line....I think her son was a lot older and remember their dad (his grandpa)a lot better than I etc.
But I do feel so sad for your situation. I think in the end, its your mom and sisters tho, that must be damaged in some way, because they seem to be lacking love and compassion..... so tho, it's very hurtful for you, in a certain way, they are the losers.
They are missing a tender kind giving heart (theirs) and the one you already have thru the Lord Jesus.

Kel I know you don't want to say anything negative about your daughter ( but know we are all sinners and thus make some pretty bad choices now and again).
But I am wondering if there is anything in generalized way that you are able to say, to help us pray more specifically? If not that is fine....
but I am wondering if she has chosen a boyfriend that is not the best choice for her, or if she has an addiction problem, or just some poor choices right now, has she confusion, or poor health?
But I will pray for her ( and have been).
I am so sorry your heart is heavy right now.....but remember God is able to turn any one of us, from a not good path, at any time....
Unfortunately, sometimes its hard when the Lord doesn't seem to be acting, or is taking longer than it seems our heart can bear.....and even if we can't see any results, that does not mean there is none happening.
I've been praying about 25-30 years for our son.....it doesn't seem like anything is happening.... Well, one thing...he and his wife ( very liberal professionals were not going to bring a child into this over populated etc. world....)
In April they are having their first child ( our 2nd grandson)....so he is changing....slowly.
No Barbara, I can not say right now. I can say its the type of people and a lifestyle she is hanging around with. The Lord knows, and just knowing you & Leonard are praying for her helps ease my mind.
Saw my mom the other day, It was just an errand day, she needed help running around. We went to lunch and it was a good visit. She is still out of sorts, but I am ignoring it and not letting it ruin anything. She has to come to terms with things. She is very frail, and not in good health, so I am not going not see her. I will help when she lets me.
thank you again for the prayers.
So good to hear about your son & his wife expecting their first baby. God's timing, not ours. I have to keep remembering that. lol.
