No matter how old our children get a mother still grieves when they are hurting! My daughter is going through a divorce and is grieving the loss of her marriage. She has been devastated by the person she considered her best friend.  They met in kindergarten and started dating in college. He has been a part of her life for so long she doesn't have any memory that doesn't include him.  We are all trying to support her through this very difficult transition in her life. I've been staying with her for the past 2 weeks. Ron will be home tomorrow and he will be a comfort to her as well.

I am asking my friends to pray for my child that her heart be healed!

I will do that. It is so hard to watch one of our children in pain.

Oh my, probably the hardest year of my life was the year following my daughter's divorce. The feelings of loss, betrayal, failure were just overwhelming for months. This was 5 yaers ago. We survived but I remember it like yesterday. I am so sorry you and your daughter are going through this but thank goodness she has her mom to walk with her through it.

I understand all too well how difficult this is as we are walking a similar path with my daughter. I heard someone say recently that, as mothers, we are only as happy as our saddest child. I find truth in that.

It sounds like a cliche, but all you can do is be accessible, listen to her as she shares, and believe that things will be better some day. No use telling her that right now—she is not ready to listen to that. But you know its true. Time really does heal everything.
