I don't know you, but it sounds to me like you are a strong woman with some really good and loving friends. I know from experience how family members can give you a hard time, but as they grow older and experience life themselves they change. So continue to pray and lean on the Lord's strength and your own strength will grow.
God put a millioneth part of his heart on a Mother
I saw where you were doing something for folks who want to tell moms how good they were. I contacted some of my friend Dorinda's former exchange students, and they were able to send notes to me to send to her. She could really use some positive reinforcement. Her sons are not dealing well with their dad's suicide, and they are blaming her for it. She could really use some others remembering positive things. She loves your magazine, so I thought she might like to receive them this way.

Thanks so much for being my mom. You were so good to me. Even graduation from college meant enough for you to travel to me to celebrate. I thanks you for that. You were good mom to all of us. You protected Pat being bad. We knew he had done something, because Corey told us. Thank you for protecting him. You were not embarrassing him. You did not share with me for many years about David suiciding. We are so sorry you are dealing with that. You were good mom. I hope they will soon realize it. You would be good grandmother. You never forget our births and anniversaries.
Love to you,
Thanks to you for mothering me while we were in Austin. You were so wonderful, and you have cared enough to stay in touch. Thanks so much for that. I look forward to the day you can meet your "grandson" in person. You were good to both your sons as well. I saw you hugging Pat in the kitchen one morning for seemingly nothing. You fussed at him where we could not hear one day as well. I am finding I have to fuss at my son more than I want, but it is my duty to make him behave. Maybe one day Pat will grow up and realize that is all you were doing for him.
Thanks being my mom. My wife hopes to meet you, and soon my baby as well. I had good times in your house. David and you taught me how to work out problems. I always saw you work through, and you make up when it was worked out. That is good. Thanks you for showing me how to be a parent. You showed me how to send Corey through college, how to use good time, how to be a good family. I surprised Pat and Corey not forgive. They had good examples from you. Thanks again being my mom for four years.
We thank you for being our "parents" while we were in Austin. We thank you for that. We know this is difficult for you. You were a nice family, and David did seem appreciative of you. Patrick seemed troubled youth, and Corey seemed resentful of him. You appeared to juggle their feelings. As a psychology student, I was impressed with that. From our observations it was not easy. I am sure you made mistakes. We all do. But you appeared to be in there trying, and you appeared to work through problems. Maybe their immaturity and hurt over what their dad did to them will soon dissapate. We thought David was fairly stable, but we could tell you were much stronger person. Frankly, what we saw, I was surprised you had not killed Patrick.
