STRESS.

As if I wasn't already stressed as it is :(
My dad came out today and told everyone he is an alcoholic and leaves tomorrow for rehab. (I never could even tell he was) He is leaving my mom in a new house they have just built and can't afford and have been having a ton of problems with. On top of that he can't work for at least 6 months and they are in a lot of debt. There is a lot of strife in the family and we really need prayers! Please everyone pray for my father.. He really needs it.

    Oh my! I will be praying! That is good that he is getting help although it seems like a terrible time. Which may be why he decided to go now. He may have known it would get worse with the stress. Addiction is such a powerful and difficult thing. I will keep you all in my prayers. I'm so sorry you all have to go through this.

    My Dad was an alcoholic for my while childhood and most of my adult life as well...it is such a hard thing to overcome. But it is a great sign for recovery that he made the decision himself to get help.

                Oh dear. I will be keeping your father, you, and the rest of your family in my prayers. I will say one right now. I pray it will all work out. It's great he is getting the help he needs though.
