Prayer request

I try not to do this here, but I am asking for your prayers. There is a family member in my husbands side of the family that appears to be intentionally exceedingly hurtful. Several weeks ago something happened and I spend nearly an hour consoling Sam after what had occurred. To say that I was livid would have been the understatement of the year. At that point I was ready to write the person off and say I wanted no further contact as I didn't want to allow that person to continue to (intentionally) hurt myself or my children. And I prayed about it, and didn't feel as though that was what God wainponted. So I didn't respond to the nastiness then. I have just been keeping muddling through and trying to "let go and let God." And I was doing ok, until yet again something else hurtful was said this week. And I just feel like by continuing to allow this person to hurt myself or the kids isn't going to be healthy for any of us. I don't want to risk this baby or this pregnancy because I get so hurt and upset by someone. So my prayer request is that God will protect my heart as well as the kids. That this person can figure out how to be kind and acknowledge this side of the family. That I don't get angry and hurt continuously, and that Sammy doesn't either, it is nearly impossible these days for me to not be hurt or angry with the way this person treats us. So please pray! Thanks so much
