  • I have dealt with the hammer, the volcano, the clam, and the megaphone. Just last Friday I had the megaphone again, a sister-in-law that can’t even get along with her own children. She runs her husband down to everyone that will listen and also her children. She has called me for 20years telling me how terrible that they are and wants to talk for at least an hour. I have always listened and told her I that I will be praying for her and I do. She told me not to listen to her daughters cries and lies. We were all on Facebook and she saw her daughter asking me to call her that she was in distress. Then the mother calls me screaming at me as usual saying daughter is lying .I prayed on the phone for them both. Daughter listens and is rational but mother of the daughter says she has been saved and doesn’t seem to want my prayers or ever discuss GOD it goes on and on…I am at a loss and can’t deal with this anymore.
