    My son & his wife have not had a good marriage. They bought ground from us when they got married therefore live on part of our original farm within walking distance. They have 3 beautiful children (ages 7-13) which have witnessed more pain & brokenness then any adult, let alone a child should.
    I have always did my best to stay out of the middle but often my sons wife would come up and vent (aka tell me how horrible my son is) and I would listen and often times would agree that what he had done in any given situation was wrong. This past Saturday she came up & cried/vented for 2.5 hours. We talked about many things and were more than fine when she left.
    Monday morning I went to try and help her with a wagon of hay that was put in her riding arena by her husband . She misread my text saying I was coming over to help and was mad at me. She said I told her to deal with it and went to show me the text to prove I said that but of course that is not what was written.
    Unfortunately, this is where things turned bad. Please note that my daughter-in-law has always told people, even her own mom, that I am the most caring , selfless person she has ever met. That morning ” because she thought I took the side of my son & not her she spewed some of the most hurtful acquisitions at me; I take advantage of her, I walk all over her, I want her off the farm & I am sick and need help. Whenever her & my son fight & SHE calls me back to take the kids I hear her screaming to her husband ” You’re sick, you need help. I myself said things that I regret but were actual true facts
    The prayer request if for my heart to soften towards her. This is the first time in 11 years that I could care less if we ever work things out. I know that is not Gods will. I ask for prayer so that I would have His heart and be able to once again give mercy & understanding to this women as He has done for me so often. She is a child of God. I want to see & love her as God does but after that explosive attack it is sooo hard.
    Please pray that my actions & attitude would be pleasing to God. That this disaster of a marriage would reconcile and be restored to a better union then it has ever been. Please pray for a hedge of protection around this entire family; physical, emotional & spiritual.
    Please pray also that she will not use the kids to manipulate the situation .

    Thank you!
    God is good and even through all these years of hurt He is using all things to be used for His glory
