A Family Divided

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

My daughter found out today that her grandma was in the emergency room yesterday. she had a fever they thought she might be getting the flu. She seemed to be better today. Only thing is the place never notified us about it and my sisterinlaw did not tell us until today in an email! No phone call or nothing! How does that work?! It seems that my sister told them at the assisted living place not to tell us and apparently my brother and sisterinlaw were told the same thing! It p to seems she is holding a grudge and hates my daughter for standing up to her on account of her grandmother. My daughter is very hurt by all this. I am angered beyond words. I feel like they are all on my sister's side and we do not even feel like being around when my sister is down either. Holding a grudge because we were not at the ER the day she wandered out of her apartment too. When will this end? We are not a family anymore. The damage is done; and God knows our hearts and that we did nothing to deserve this treatment. Where is her Christian spirit in all this? I think it dried up like a prune along with her aged body. There is no going back now.

    You've got great advice from everybody. Praying for peace of heart for you and your daughter no matter what the actions of others are, as well as for your mother's recovery. emoticon

    I'm sorry that your family relationships are what they are. I do agree that you and Jenny should lay this at the feet of Jesus and call down His power to envelop you with a Christ-like attitude. I'm praying for you.

    Family relationships are so very complicated. Always be the good person, in the end it is paying off as you need to sleep at night. Don't allow them to get to you because you really can't afford bitterness for your own sake.

    I agree 100% with Blue42 above! Family is so difficult. Be an example to your daughter of the goodness of family; she already knows the other side.

    Don't spend too much time worrying over her Christian spirit. That is something she must worry about. Instead, focus on how you (and your daughter) respond, that it shows an outflow of your own Christian spirit rather than a resentment at being wronged.
