Hey mommas,
I'm still here! We started school last Monday,so, it's been a bit crazy!

I need some prayer though.

Long story short:

My parents have been together 25 years, married 20.
Mom and dad are both saved. Mom is not walking with the Lord at this point.
Mom is anorexic, and pushing her 'ways' onto everyone else in the house.
Dad is unemployed (it will be 2 years in Feb.) Very much down and discouraged.
Mom doesn't care.. treats him terribly, is very unkind, not encouraging, and spends money like they have it to spend! (ie: trips to Anne Taylor and such)
My mom has not been the 'mom of the year' type mom. She is very selfish,always has been, but, now, this past year, she has turned into someone that I don't even know anymore

My brothers and sister still live w/my parents.
My sister is 22 and my boys (I have helped raise them) are 15, 12 and 10.

Things are bad, mom is just down right horrible to everyone in the home at this point, and she has emotionally checked out..
Dad is ready to leave.. but doesn't have the courage to do so.

So, pray for us! And also, pray for my dad, my sister, and myself tonight. We are going to dinner just the 3 of us to discuss what should happen next..

Thanks so much!
It feels so nice to be able to come somewhere and know you ladies will be praying! to all! I'll try to pop in more often!!

Thanks for the prayers!

Dinner went ok. My dad is just depressed more than anything.
He says he is going to tell my mom that she needs to get help, they need to both get help for their marriage, or he was leaving.. so, we will see what she says to all that I guess..
