Bees, my Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaids planned my shower around my mom’s schedule and she basically told me she can’t come today (shower is this weekend) without a legitimate excuse except that her husband isn’t feeling great (he does not need her to look after him – he will not be left alone while she is at the shower). She knows how much having her at the shower means to me and she just sent me a one-liner text saying shes postponed her travel plans and she’ll let me know if she’c coming into town next weekend or the weekend after. I’m just so over hose selfish, narcissistic and manipulative she is. She’s never been a great parent and she always guilt trips me (she did it in this instance when I’ve let so many things slide…) So upset and so over it. I’m trying to focus on the positive, as a lot of family members and friends even from out of town are coming to the shower. I just can’t help but feel hurt and very snubbed like she doesn’t care. Any words of advice from anyone who’s dealt with difficult relatives would be very appreciated. I’m just so numb right now.
