So I can and have removed myself farther and farther away from DH's side of the family, I've posted in the past how vindictive they are and how cold they are to him, me and our children. His mother is in her 70s and his dad just turned 80 and they are blessed wtih good health. His mother writes about her grandkids on fb, she shoots them supportive posts but doesn't do the same for our children (two of them are connected with her there). I tell my kids to be kind to her and sadly, fb is the only way they stay in touch. Her other grandchildren are older and maybe there are bigger life events there than the school age stage my own kids are at, But to me and only IMO, It is conditional and I wish she knew what that looks like. She doesn't even remember their bds. I know I shouldn't let it bother me and personally, it doesn't, But it's my kids I think of and how caring they are of people that aren't getting the same in return from people that assume this role as "family".
And here we are with the holidays just around the corner, Happy Thanksgiving to you, We are so thankful to have you in our lives, Gawd.
Ok, vent over and thanks for reading.
