SWEET TEA

Friday, September 18, 2009

Raining on the inside



My heart is broken.
I am used up and drained.

Our sweet young daughter-in-law informed
our son that she wants a divorce.
He is devastated.

Shock.
Anger.
Denial.
Brokenness.
Sadness beyond words.

He loves her.
We love her.
We are all grieving.

Son is visiting this week.
There are no words that comfort him.
It is in some ways worse than a death.
The rejection has brought him to his knees.

Our faith will sustain us,
but it is very difficult at the moment.

I am so very sorry your son and you have to go through this. It is difficult to watch one's child suffer. We went through this with our daughter a few years ago--so I know your pain. Hugs and prayers to all of you. We're here for you.

Oh my gosh! Tears came to my eyes when I read this. Although my divorce has been three years ago, I still remember the pain of it and how I felt like my whole world was crashing down. Things are so much different that I ever imagined. What I knew as my in laws are no longer. I mourned and you and definitely, your son will have to mourn as if the marriage has literally died. There are no words to make it better. It's something that only God can really make new.

I will be praying for him and for her. The decision, obviously was something she wanted. I just hope and pray that she doesn't continue to cause hurt in your lives.

Oh no. I am so very sorry.

Will keep your son in my thoughts as he goes through this very tough time.

I so sorry for you and your family. We're here for you - that's what blog support is for. I hope that perhaps this will not end in divorce, but there will be a way to work through this - especially if there is still love and support from family. God bless.

So painfull for all of you. We went through the same situation with SIL and our daughter thought her life had ended. Their son was only 2. It was difficult and there were many tearful days but in time Stephanie's heart healed and she could see that their marriage would have never worked. She's happily married now for 10 years to a wonderful man who has helped raise our grandson, love our daughter unconditionally and be the best son to us ever. Sending love and healing to your family...

I'm wishing I had some brilliant insights to share. I am speechless. I can't imagine how much it hurts to see your son's pain, and to feel the hurt of losing a beloved DIL.
I am sorry for your fam.

So often we think we have the right thing to say, but then find ourselves at a loss for words.

Just know that we are with you and your son during this time of transition and change.

I am sorry for you all too.
That is a tough one.
Because you have welcomed her in your family and heart, she will remain "family" to you, but not to him.
Stay in touch with her too...they both need your love and support at this difficult time.
