Bruised and Battered
You'd think by now I'd know better right? Wrong !!!! The past few months have tested my sanity, my faith and my strength. We're in the process of selling our home something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Having to run out of your home for a complete stranger to walk through is very unnerving. Sometimes my little one's had just gone off to sleep or I'd just made lunch only to have to grab it and run. To add fuel to my pain my parents are not well. My mother just got out of the hospital and while on a business trip my father suffered a stroke.
I'm the oldest and seeing this road my parents health is on I've prayed to God and told Him" Dear Lord, I'm not ready" I know who am I to say this like" Who ever is." I've cried out loud sobbing uncontrollably, I just don't know anything right now. I'm surrounded by selfish uncaring in-laws who decided to ask me if I was able to get her an autograph from a friend of mine who is a Hall of Fame NFL player. Like oh man really your dad had a stroke well um yea let's talk about that autograph. I'm tired of trying with these people. Even some animals have more care and compassion. Trust me when I say my sister in law didn't fall far from the tree. My mother in law is a woman who has spent her life manipulating people and it's back fired miserably. Her husband hasn't had a steady job in over six years, if she spent more time manipulating those classified ads and his resume she'd be doing something. This is a family of scheming, manipulative people who would set you on fire if they thought they could get what they wanted. Want to see a mirror? Mother in law cheats on ex-husband and marries current husband (number 3). Daughter cheats on husband and gets mother to pay for divorce and moves into her second home. Her F Buddy hangs out over there using the computer and probably eating nachos and drinking a corona. Daughter pays mother no rent and probably has no intent to pay her mother back the close to 13k she owes her for a divorce attorney. mother in law saw nothing wrong with her daughter committing adultery. HMMM wonder why? With my mother in the same room they never once asked her how she was doing or speaking to her for that matter. When my father in law was hit by a car my mother called to ask if there was anything they could do. Human Decency !! But again the apple never falls far from the tree. When you scheme and manipulate all your life that's all you are. This is what I am stuck with people.
