Love to you all.

scanned the bottom of the thread, but not the top so may have missed people, sorry.

it was all a bit of a rush... with DO stepping into the breach to post a new thread.


Dutchoma Thu 10-Nov-16 12:15:28

Thanks BES. TUO has always done such a lovely job and I know that people are grateful to be remembered at the beginning of a new thread. If anybody feels left out, please add yourself in, we love to have you, new, old or middling.

Orchidflower1 Thu 10-Nov-16 13:23:12

Thanks to dutchoma for setting up the new thread and all for adding to it.

Dear Lord, as we start our new thread, I give thanks for all the support and advice we give each other. You know us all and the worries, joys and thoughts in our hearts. Send your Holy Spirit to all of us on the thread and hear us when we pray. Amen

passportmess Fri 11-Nov-16 00:32:37

Lovely new thread! Thank you Dutchoma and Bes

BlackeyedSusan Fri 11-Nov-16 07:46:07

shortscotty Fri 11-Nov-16 08:29:32

Hello all, been a bit potty here so haven't dropped in as often as I would have liked but I am thinking of you all and praying for you xx
(And of course BES electrical goods smile)

Dutchoma Fri 11-Nov-16 08:49:20

Welcome shortscotty. Or welcome back under a new name?

Orchidflower1 Fri 11-Nov-16 11:14:09

Praying for electrical appliances bes particularly washer as that would be worst to go - imho.

Please pray for me as anxiety bad today.. At work at mo but having break.
Please also pray for uncle as in hospital with pneumonia / blood clot.
Got school run to do later and feel worried x

Dutchoma Fri 11-Nov-16 11:59:12

Good on you - being at work. One step at the time.

CocoaX Fri 11-Nov-16 14:48:33

thank you, Dutchoma for the new thread and bes for the mentions for everyone and Orchid for the prayer.

Just as well you did not have to rely on me, as I was busy at work and with DC all day yesterday in the end, and today been dealt a blow by xH who is using my health issues against me now... I have been praying for clarity and guidance and will continue to do so. Please can you pray for me? I would like to be able to focus on caring for my children and doing my job, and remembering that life is larger than this and that my energy can be used in a positive and compassionate way, rather than reacting in anger, fear or defence.

Orchid, I will pray for you and your uncle and that the school run goes okay. Bes, sympathies with the electrical goods failures, we had a run of these and it is a bit annoying, particularly if money and patience are in short supply! I am also praying that your mum is okay and your DC too.

I am sitting here before the school run praying for readers of this thread and beyond and looking out my window at the horizon. The sunrise was lovely this morning, thanks be to God. It has meant so much to me to have such a beautiful autumn for so long, as winter will be more manageable.

Dutchoma Fri 11-Nov-16 16:13:22

Certainly praying for you Cocoa. Why do people have to be so difficult?

CocoaX Fri 11-Nov-16 16:33:02

Thank you- I am distraught actually as, after everything, I was offering a conciliatory way forward and I have got a bullying response, discrediting me. I need to remain open-hearted and concentrate on DC interests.

KayKat Fri 11-Nov-16 16:59:53

Had parents evening and all is good with DS at college. He leaves things until the last minute which stresses me but they said his work is good so I shall have to try and relax over it. I've been running round like a crazy thing sorting lots of paperwork and house move. Feeling excited about the new area. I have not been part of a church properly in years and there are a couple I've got my eye on which will be nearby after I move.

Dutchoma Fri 11-Nov-16 18:40:47

Cocoa you can only do what you think is right for you. If it is not received in the spirit you offered it, that is not your fault. You have done your best. Bullying is horrible to cope with and I shall go on praying for your and dc as before.
Kay I am very excited with you over the new house as I realise how far off this was when you first started posting. If there is anyone who could say a word or two about bullying, it is you. And you have come through years of it and now you are at the beginning of a new phase, you and ds, who is doing well.

CocoaX Fri 11-Nov-16 22:29:03

flowers I have no idea what is right for me anymore. I am praying for guidance as prayer has got me this far. Thank you for praying for me.

Kay I am pleased for you and your DS. That sounds lovely after difficult times and I hope your DS continues to do well,

Dutchoma Sat 12-Nov-16 07:26:03

Cocoa, what I meant was is this: you have a compass for what is right or wrong. Standing up to a bully is right, protecting your children from a bully is right. It may hurt to do what is right but this is what you have done. It has not had the result you hoped for. That is not your fault and when I said: you can only do what is right for you, that is what I meant. God is with you, whatever that may feel like and today I pray for you that some real life help will come alongside you to strengthen and support you

CocoaX Sat 12-Nov-16 09:16:03

Thank you, it means a lot to me. I understand what you mean now. I will keep praying for guidance on what is right, with compassion and an open heart, to find a way through. And for real life support in whatever form it comes. And for everyone on this thread and beyond who needs courage and supportflowers

KayKat Sat 12-Nov-16 10:45:00

Cocoa could you give a brief description of your situation? I haven't been on here a while so I've missed a lot. My XH cheated and was abusive especially around the time that he had the affair. He also tried to alienate DS from me for a while and it worked to a certain extent until DS became older and more mature. Amazingly he is now a fairly supportive parent and backs me up over things. I never thought I would see the day. I went through a very long and difficult divorce. I don't know if your situation is similar.

CocoaX Sat 12-Nov-16 16:56:09

Thanks Kay, can I pm you? I think his approach is very nasty and when I showed the latest legal letter to someone, they said it was odd, as it does not seem about DS but getting at me. Which it is as he wants to discredit me rather than address what I have asked him to. But I don't want to put any more identifying information on-line or take up the thread. I will keep praying for clarity as to what the right thing is, as well as open hearted acceptance of what I cannot change (that he seems to want to destroy me). But thank youflowers

KayKat Sun 13-Nov-16 07:33:09

Yes of course you can PM me Cocoa. I have been on the receiving end of many legal letters and have sent a fair few as well. They can be very upsetting and scary but actually they have no power, a lot of the time they are meaningless and irrelevant. It's only the judges that have the power if you even get that far.

LarrytheCucumber Sun 13-Nov-16 16:51:48

Wow. Thank you for remembering me

amberlight Sun 13-Nov-16 16:59:37
