After my bro-in-law disrespected me and H didn't say anything I told him to leave. He was gone for just 4 nites but it felt like a month. His bro apologized profusely and my H did too so on fri eve I said come home. I thought all would be well but my 21 yr old daughter was so mad she said I can't talk about it now. I know she thinks I shoud have punished him more but how can healing and forgivness happen if were always punishing? I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. My 23yr old daughter decided not to come over for dinner this week as she just didn't want to see her dad. I started to cry and he asked why, I told him and he looked so sad, those two always had a special relationship and it's hurt the kids so badly. One sweet thing happened yesterday, My 17 yr old son came home from football practice with flowers, he said, this is all I could afford (tulips), that was the best surprise!. He said "it's for all youv'e been thru lately" I think showing the kids forgivness toward their dad will help heal them too. It's sure not easy but I'm working on it. take care Sharon
