“You do just have to say, ‘because its what God wants me to do.’”
You have no idea how many times my husband and I say that regarding his mother! She’s a demaning princess, voted for Obama (and continually tells us how wonderful he is), and a major whiner. When we get to the end of our rope doing right by her, we say, “It’s what Christians do”.
Oh, poor MayflowerMadam! I feel for you - truly. Make sure you take plenty of time to recoup and get over your frustration and annoyance. I’m doing the rounds with my mother tomorrow. She’s a terrible backseat driver and has often caused me to have near accidents. I almost panic before I have to visit her. And like most of these women, everyone thinks she’s just a wonderful old darling while glaring at me, lol!
Sometimes you just gotta laugh.
My family went Republican three generations ago, fortunately. A grouchy oldster who’s also a Democrat might be too much!
God bless you and your husband for doing what’s right!
