A Glimmer of Hope

DH talked to our son-in-law today. DD2 does not talk like she hates us or talk negatively about us and she doesn't seem depressed like she was here for the last little bit. That makes me glad. People keep telling me that maybe she needed to get away to get some perspective. I don't know.

There was a lot of bitterness, rebellion and anger in her. Perspective won't necessarily change that. I don't know.

Anyway, all I know is just hearing the things that DH relayed from that phone call gave me a bit of hope when I didn't seem to have any today.


  1. A small step in the right direction...

  2. Glad to hear! There is always some sort of silver lining, or so I hear, anyway.

  3. Thank you, ladies. Your continued support and words of encouragement are really helping me to get through this time. Yesterday I felt like I was drowning, seriously. It seemed like I couldn't grab the net that I know God is throwing out to me, like I just didn't even want to. I hope there aren't too many days like that, in fact, I pray against days like that. I will always write on here with honesty about how I feel but I had lost hope and was talking like I doubt God. I don't doubt God but I do find myself in moments of hopelessness. I don't like it; it then sounds like I am calling God a liar, that I am doubting His word and I most certainly don't mean to do that.

    I am working on dealing with this heart breaking situation but instead of wallowing in my self-pity (i've been on that train long enough, although I am sure I will try to hop on it again), I want to speak life and faith into the situation.
