My son and his wife are going through the rocky first stages of divorce, which of course is very painful. I haven't had any contact with her for a few months. My daughter tells me they could use some help with money for some of my grandkids' needs. Do you feel under the circumstances that I should offer to help, or should I just wait until things are more settled?
Here is a good rule of thumb in such matters as concerns best spiritual and practical action: as best you can, stay out of other people's business... unless directly asked for something specific... and even then, think twice before entering into the matter at hand. Sometimes the most caring thing one can do for another is to leave them to handle their own mess!
