I was emotional, she asked how my wife and I were, and I paused for like two minutes, and she knew immediately we were not doing well either. So while I reached out to my Mom for different reasons, I still shared some things with her in a moment of weakness that my wife didn't want me to share and that was wrong. I've since apologized. I made sure and let my Mom know at the end of the conversation that what is between Grace and I is between Grace and I alone, but that I appreciated her kind words of encouragement.

How does Grace feel about the words of encouragement? I know how Prisca felt when my parents did the same thing.

Please ask her. From her feedback I'd say she loves the support from my Mom, but is not enthusiastic about our discussion we had together.
