O.K why would you steal my family they are my family even if they suck often!lol!
j.k but it does sound like one of my rants for sure.
My DH and I have 2 children we "made" and 1 adopted child who is his sister's child by birth but all ours by heart and choice.
But we still get told we dont do enough for "his" family.
Never mind the 1000.00s of dollars we have "lent" to his mother and never seen again.
Never mind I took care of his sister when she was pregnant due to MIL would have nothing to do with her. I was the first person to hold this child after birth,as in I was cutting cords and wiping off after birth.
I cherish ALL MY CHILDREN.
My mother is passed 15 years ago, my father is useless as he is lost with out a wife to care for and run his life.
So mu DH and I raise our kids alone most of the time, no sitters and breaks as no one is ever available when we would need them.
So dont swat a little ranting and raving......I am doing it on here now for you!
Stand strong and draw your strength from the Lord. He knows you are honoring yourself and him by doing what you are for your family regardless of your mother's short sighting.
And the piece of mind, strength and honor he bestows out weighs it all in the end.
God Bless you and yours, I'll be sure to add you to my prayers.
