What Do We Do When We Cannot Change Our Loved Ones?

Posted by Mamacita, Alumna Mentor @mamacita, Dec 9, 2019

Hello everyone. I am asking a question about all those family members that we all seem to have. Those annoying, wierd, dysfunctionsl, boring, ridiculous relatives that share our DNA and our lives. On the other hand, at times we choose not to include these people in our family gatherings. And regret our decision later.So we invite them over again. Only to be disappointed. Again.

What do we do? On every hand, we are bombarded with tv and movie displays of joyous family gatherings. Commercials and even lessons for schoolchildren promote the idea that we are family, by golly. And family not only sticks together, they get together. Frequently. So what are we good citizens of this ever-changing world expected to do?

I have a few ideas on this. Bear with me. I promise not to make you feel guilty, whatever you decide to do for your particular clan.

So join me in this holiday quest for truth regarding our in-laws and outlaws. I hope you will find a chuckle here and there. Maybe a good story, or a verse from a well read book, to help you on your way .

Jingle bell joy and love to you,

Jane

The next thirty minutes are going to be very intense. Storm damage in the county just next to us. Sirens going off now. It feels like tropical weather when you walk outside. I pray that we all are safe and sound when this is over. This is not our first rodeo. Yet, we have a healthy respect for Mother Nature here in the South.

Tomorrow will be a better day, hopefully, and we can talk.

Love and light,
Mamacita Jane

@mamacita I am glad better days came after the storm and that you had no real problems from it.

I hope your recovery from cataract surgery will go as well as mine did.
