My cousin came to visit my Uncle Adam (her father) this week. We really don’t know much about what’s happening but they seem to be having a good visit.
Unfortunately, my cousin didn’t call us until she had been here for some time. That makes it hard for us to plan our lives around her visit. We wish she would have called us as soon as she checked into her hotel. Before she came, she said she wanted my mom to take her to see her dad but apparently she decided to see him on her own but we didn’t know that she had decided to do that. My mom was willing to help facilitate that 15 year reunion, but she feels like she was taken for granted again. Seeing him was the main purpose of my cousin’s visit but we’ve been kind of treated as if we’re expected to drop everything at their convenience. So, we probably won’t get to see her.
As for my Uncle Adam, he seems to be feeling better. He hasn’t been calling my mom for help and advice lately. He usually only calls when he needs something.
Anyway, please keep the whole situation in your prayers. Pray that he and his daughter and her kids have a good visit and that he becomes more motivated to get proper medical treatment and take care of himself.
Pray also that his daughter gets back home safely. She lives over 400 miles away.
In addition, pray for our dysfunctional family. My mom is tired of being used by them. They only call when they want something and they never call to ask how we’re doing. They don’t do the little things that people who care should do. For example, invite us over for a meal or show any interest in us as human beings. I guess those little things aren’t as important to me, but they are to my mom and I understand how she feels. At this point in her life, my mom is tired of being a doormat. Pray that God works everything out for His glory and the good of everyone.
Finally, we got our tax refund today and we praise God for it! Please pray that we’ll pay off our most important bills and that somehow our income will increase right away. Stressing about money and my job situation is bad for my blood pressure and my mom’s heart condition.
May God grant all of your needs and desires according to His will,
