Pushed into the corner.

Friday, December 24, 2010

It can only get better, right? I don't feel very Christmasy. My mom's husband - I can't call him step-dad right now - hurt himself. He is on major pain meds and can't take care of mom right now. He is being extremely stubborn and doesn't want to pay for care. I threatened to get a lawyer if he didn't get care in the house. I had to do it. My mom can't be alone. I told them I would move in, but he said "NO". I am so worried about my mom. She hasn't been taking her meds because he is not checking to be sure she does. He knows she won't remember but he won't face facts. I am an emotional wreck. When I called this morning mom sounded really upset. She is usually so compliant and doesn't have much in the way of a negative mood.

    The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth of exactly what to do before the situation gets too far out of hand. It seems to me that the husband should be put somewhere out of the way. But, that is my personal opinion and not the Lords, please just follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and you will not go wrong and dont forget to let peace be your umpire.

    I am praying for you. Pray for peace within yourself. One thing I truly believe, you cannot make "grown ups" do what they don't want to do. Blessings to you!
