    To St Anne
    My oldest son, grew up in Catholic School, active in the Chirch. Crushed when we divorced. Now with a family of his own 3 children ands a loyal but lonely wife. He lives in a farm that looses money cultivating Hemp & Marijuana in Oregon. For the past 5 years. With dogs & sheep like a wild man, She lives in Fl with the kids supported financially by my ex- husband my son’s father. The move happened after Christmas where they split because of the negative environment for the children that had not gone to school & did not know the basics. Praise God first time in school ages 12, 8 & 3 (not in school) I am in a wheelchair age 73 and work thank God can work remotly. My younger son lives with me for the past 2 yrs. He used to love motorcycles, had a near fatal crash where he was in a coma & hospitalized for 9 months. Over 30 surgeries. R arm pulverized rebuilt with much difficulty he’s going to school at age 50, Praise God. He sees me & hears me that I pray constantly he hears tge prayers that I listen to but he is also away from God and he uses marijuana to control dull the pain. I forgot to state they are both Bipolar. The one that lives with me is Schizoaffective and very paranoid & explosive. He is in school Bless the Holy Spirit that lives in him & works miracles for he is alive & he helps me tremendously. However he lived with his brother in Oregon for a year and was chastised by his brother because he was not able to keep up with tge farm work. They don’t talk at all. The one that lives with me resents his brother and resents me, never forgets that he was hospitalized (because of psychosis & drugs) numerous times as a teenager & young adult. Return to God and family UNITY is what ask for
