My family is visiting!
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
My sister and her husband are here, this is day 5 of the most wonderful visit we have had in over 10 years. Last night she and I sat on the deck and talked for hours...she has not had it as easy as I assumed. My brother-in-law has been struggling with really bad childhood issues and turned to drinking. He went into rehab but has relapsed several times so is in intensive therapy. She told me she "knew something was terribly wrong but didn't know what it was" so she lashed out at everybody. I just thought she was being horrid but actually she was hurting. This morning my husband and I prayed for both of them.
I wish I had known a few years before! When people act mean it may mean they are having struggles we cannot possibly know about!
I have my sister back and I thank the Lord. Pray for them both, please!
