Food. We're really passionate about food.

I'm thinking that the back ache from your drugs would give you a clue.

Well,  when you are confined to a wheelchair in constant pain maybe you will have learned your lesson about drug use.

And your claim to be Christ-like in the meantime is highly suspect by everyone who hears of your advocacy of recreational illicit drug use.

Why is being right about procedures so important? Have I completely missed the point of Jesus' teaching?

I would of wished my MIL would of been that loving, she hated my guts,and never had a thing to do with DH,and I when we got married, she never even met our son, she died never trying to get along with us, or meeting our son.
My mother is same way, she lives 5 miles down road,and does not have a thing to do with us or our son.
It is usually just DH,DS,and myself.
Count your blessings that you have a MIL who wants to be with you...
It hurts beyond belief that it is just us 3,and not either of our families...

Oh, believe me, my mil does NOT love me! She has made it clear its a competition for my dh...which I think is really sad.

She picks favorites with my kids too...some she smothers others she ignores.

Its not about wanting to be with us. Its about wanting to be in control and use us. Trust me. I'd love a supportive extended family too, we don't have one on either side, so we made our own and today was BLISS! ::clappingoverhead::

Isnt that just so pathetic when mothers cant let their adult children go? Talk about immature.  ::frown::  I would far rather have no inlaws than bad ones.  As for favouring the children that is appalling behaviour.  ::eek::

Yes it is...and my side does it too.  ::frustrated:: VERY hurtful and it destroys relationships.  Makes my blood boil!  We work SO hard to counter those moments, and put away the generational sin of favoritism and picking a black sheep.
 

My MIL favoured the boys in the family, so much so that she left something in her will to the grandsons but not to the granddaughter. Her other son went with her when she made the will, and apparently said nothing to her about it or challenged her in way. if that has been me with my parents I would have been appalled and definitely spoken out. Thank God my parents werent like that.
::frown::  That is just so familiar and pathetic!  God have mercy on a heart like that!

 Dont either of you have brothers or sisters or uncles or aunts or cousins or grandparents?

Sometimes when a family is really dysfunctional, the gossip and backbiting makes it so you feel you cannot trust anyone in the family.

But, maybe family friends, a lonely couple, older man/woman from church could be a part of the family you create, Joyful. You could invite them over and begin new traditions with people who are just as lonely as you and alla sudden, you have a whole new group to be thankful for, and celebrate with.  ::smile::
