- Wedding: May 2013
When Fiance and I got engaged my Mom was excited. Not thrilled but happy. She really likes Fiance. My mom also lives with my Grandmother, who’s health was declining. Both were happy for us. We had an engagement party in their beautiful back yard. My Grandmother sulked in the house for whatever reason. Im not entirely sure she still has full control of her emotions. She tends to lash out at Me and my Mom because we take care of her and she knows we will always be there.
Well recently my Grandmother had surgery and went to rehab. In that time it was determined she would not be coming home. My Mother no longer had the ability to care for her at a level that was safe/necessary. While we are still in the process of placing my Grandmother and telling her what is going on, I have noticed one thing,
My Mom WANTS to talk about the wedding. She WANTS to be involved!! She has even offered to help pay for my dress because she likes it so much!! Until now I had been on my own, when I wanted to bounce ideas off someone I called Future Mother-In-Law, who I am close with. She is a bit of a scatterbrain, but I love her! But I always missed having MY Mom involved. At first I thought it was because this was my 2nd marraige and she paid for the first wedding and was mad at me because it failed. But that wasn’t it at all, she was under immense pressure with my Grandmother. So now she has the flexability to become involved and I am SO excited!!!
Just had to share!
