Just keep on being your own sweet self, no matter what is said or not said. BE YOURSELF. I know it can be hard but if you don't change then maybe she will. Love her little one like you do your own. Years ago when I worked in a sewing plant I had to get up early just to soak my hands in real hot water to get stiffness from hands , fingers and wrists. This helped with the swelling because after soaking I could exercise them and that helped with the swelling. Try if you haven't already Know what you mean about this feeling like home. It's that way for me also. Anyway, welcome home and may the sweet spirit of Christmas abound in your home even of it dwells only in you, it will spread/Lillian
Thank you Lillian.I'm tired of being the door mat. I spent over 23 years with a man who made me believe I was stupid and ignorant so I have some experience with biting my tongue. But you are right. I do love her little one but I refuse to take his lack of respect and I tell him which upsets her. I refused to LET my own children treat me the way their father did and I won't allow him to do the same thing to me no matter what she says. He really is a good boy and he pushes his Moms buttons as much and as often as he can. We see it when she doesn't. I've gotten to the point where I'm ready to just leave it in Gods hands but I have trouble keeping quiet on this. Thank you for your good and honest advice.I think he's beginning to realize it is harder to get away with being naughty just by saying I love you. We both picked up on that one really quickly.Thank you for sharing your own Christmas Spirit. Maybe I'll find it after all!
Glad you could pop in and say hello...I hope things settle out for you...wishing you all a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas...
Thank you dragonflyer. I had forgotten how kind and understanding my Cute family is. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!
Our seasons in life constantly change, sometimes better and sometimes just different.
It's good to hear from you again Meri and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Nice to see you too! I see you are still a moderator! I try to go with the flow since I hit 60 but some days are harder than others. I'm hoping the wonderful Spirit of Christmas slips back into my heart again. I really need some!
Lovely to see a post from you after so long. Do you still have time to use your embroidery machine as you sound v busy?
