I visited on the phone this morning with my sister-in-law in BC. She phoned to let me know that she was separating from her husband - my husband's brother. I hurt for her, for her kids and for her husband. We visited on the phone for well over an hour. Although the particulars are different, we share so much with the disfunctionalities of our marriages, the pain that both of our husbands have due to their childhoods and how that has been manifested in their lives. Both of us are hoping that we can break the cycle of pain and abuse so that our children don't have to live with it as well.
I hurt for her. I know where she's at now, and I pray that her road will be uphill from here.
