I'm still working at it, and haven't gained, but it's more and more of a struggle. Those old habits die hard.
I could use some prayer if anyone is so inclined. Thank you.
I hope that everyone is doing better than I am, and staying strong to your commitments.

My son is still trying to get his life organized. His wife is still drinking. Last night I got a call at 3am. With one son in Iraq, his wife and 4 little ones fending for themselves, Youngest son (whose wife is the alcoholic) living in a hotel with his son for a few days, while social workers try to get her into a residential care place, I answered the phone.
It was her. And I talked with her for hours. Supposidly she will go to a re hab place tomorrow IF they pick her up. She is so ill. Physically and spiritually. I tried so hard to say the right things, I have no idea if I did ANY good.
We are all so tired, and I feel like my entire life is in a sort of holding pattern while this goes on.
I wish I had the money to send him so he could get a new place. So confusing.
BUT the Lord has stepped in time and again just in time. I know it is in his hands. Just feeling rather weak right now.
