@mightywombat:  Yes, it’s good that you were able to catch that one before it happened. ๐Ÿ™‚ Her thoughts are very lovely, though! Her heart was certainly in the right place.

good thing you found out now instead of at the time of happening.  you would have been pretty embarassed.

did you tell your mom rule#1: never steal the bride’s spotlight.

@mightywombat:  That is so true. I’m sure that many times we may feel as if someone intended to slight us in some way when that really isn’t the case at all. That’s a great observation!

I’m glad you found out her intentions beforehand! THis Christmas I was in a similar situation. My sister and her husband were celebrating their first Christmas with us (they live way out of town), and my aunt made a HUGE spectacle of me and FI’s engagement. She literally popped a bottle of champagne! I was embarassed, and felt bad for my sister and her new hubby ๐Ÿ™ I really wanted the attention to be on them. She said she did not mind, but I still feel bad.
