As I get older, my world gets smaller.

by Patsy ()

Father God, I pray for myself and my family to engage in a conversation to recover our relationships. My grandchildren seem to not want me around for family gatherings. At 72 , it’s difficult for me and my partner to travel six hours round trip to be with them. I pray for my partner, who struggles to walk. I want to be with them but my son in law has PTSD and everybody seems to be terrified that something will set him off. He takes the lead in how the rest of the family should ignore or not engage with me. There’s a history when I felt I deserved respect but that didn’t mean I would get it. I’ve tried hard to lower my expectations, and that has come to fruition. I have a brother and a sister whom I seldom talk to. They both think they’re better than me. I wonder why? I’m terrified of being and dying alone. Please help me, oh Lord. In Jesus name. Amen
