Would my BOL friends please pray for my friend Mary. Her husband was arrested this morning at about 2:30AM for domestic battery, to her. She is a strong women and has finally had enough of the drinking, rage and abuse (physical and emotional) and he either gets help or gets out. Getting the order of protection this morning and just taking it one day, one minute at a time.

Good for her for finally saying 'enough' and doing something about it. It'll be very difficult, but thankfully she has you for some support.
I'll be thinking of her...

Corky, I'm thankful that she is finally taking a stand and saying 'no more'! No one should live like that; God grant her resolve to stay strong and move on.

I will pray for your friend. I was in the same situation a couple of months ago. My husband is back home and sober. I am proceeding with caution as that could change at any time. I wish her luck.

Looking for My Happy Place....
Corky, thoughts and prayers for all.

You know - we complain about our spouses sometimes but there's always someone out there dealing with something we could never imagine.
I hope everything works out for her.
