Last week, my family and I went to visit my in-laws for a family gathering in New Mexico. Before that, I thought of not going there because I sensed that something bad is going to happen if I do, through enough my bad feeling was confirmed on the first day of our stay there. The four days we spent there was very stressful to me. With my sister in-law who never liked me the moment we first met made my visit a night mare before our visit was over. She managed to voice put what she was feeling for me through my son ( who is very young and innocent ). She was very mad and couldn't stand my presence anymore, took her feeling out of his nephew! She yelled on my son...and trying to depend her dog! The worst thing was that she blamed it on my parenting skills why my son doesn't like her dog! The nerve of questioning my parenting skills while she herself had never has a kid of her own nor not having experienced on how to raise a child. What I expected to be a healthier relationship with my in-laws turned out to be a disaster. What a family of inconsiderate, selfish and immature people. So glad, I have a family who raised me to be a good person despite our poverty. I love my healthy relationship with my own folks, siblings and their families who love me, hubby and Jacob.
I just hope they'll realized how wrong they are for criticizing our parenting skills, and pray that they will change. For now, forgetting what they did is out of my mind....I might forgive what they did...but forgetting would take a long while.
