Please pray for our family... things are very tight right now

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Hi everyone. Sorry I have not been around for a long time. This past year has been a difficult one,not only the 1 yr anniversary of my step son's death, but we also were made aware that my MIL was not doing well. So we had to go back to NC in late January early February to take her to her doctors to have her checked over. Turns out that she has Alzheimer's and Dementia. We spent 4 weeks (me) and DH 6 weeks there cleaning house, organizing things, and getting her settled into a nursing home. when dh left to come home MIL was settled into a nursing home. Not even a month after we left my SIL took her out just because she was "crying" that she wanted to go home!! well all of the doctors that she saw in the hospital said that she should not be driving anymore or living alone!! Well we got the drivers license revoked but she is living alone, and we have told my SIL that she is hers to deal with, but in my MIL's mind we are liers and thieves!! this is a Nasty disease that makes your loved one into someone you do not know. So it has been a stressful year plus my husband lost 2 jobs over all of this mess and has not been able to find work since!

Please pray for us as we try to live on my paycheck for the moment and pray that God will supply a job or show us why HE is witholding a job from my dh at this point in time. It is hard to stretch $335.00 over 2 1/2 weeks between paychecks!!! But God has provided in one way or another! We still have a roof over our heads and food on our table and a car so that I can get to work. Putting gas in the car well that is another matter! That is where I am trusting God to stretch my gas for me.

God Bless !!! Colleen emoticon emoticon

    You know, I simply can't for the life of me fathom wny any diety worth their salt would withdraw needed livelihoods from those in need - this makes me angry beyond words and has negatively colored my view of any organized religion......sorry to vent, but employment issue have been a huge "red button" issue for me this entire decade.......know that I will be keeping you and your family in my best thoughts (I don't think any attempt on my part to pray would likely fall on deaf ears - my employment issues being a major example of such).......

    My MIL also fell prey to dementia/AD........it is truly hell on earth to see sweet people become total strangers right before your very eyes......
