Thank you so much for the reply. You seem to be a very wise woman. That is a good prayer to remember.
I am beginning to see the same signs of mental decline, that my mother-in-law is displaying, in my husband. I feel like I am going to drown. I see all of the dreams I had for retirement, and life in general, going up in smoke. Sorry, for the me, me, me.
I am getting out of bed early to pray and meditate and I am getting in some badly needed exercise. This morning my goals is to give thought to finding new interests...activities that will give me joy... and to look closely at my blessings, although I am having a bit of trouble with these dang tears getting in the way of good vision.
My manta lately has been to honor my Mother. As hard as I looked I could not find it written anywhere "honor her if she is a sweet little old lady". I know for certain though, that that package does not come with allowing her to abuse me.
This is not just about me. How can I be of support to you?
