I have to admit that when I married your son, my guns were loaded,
and I was ready for a fight because somewhere along the way, I came to believe that the new wife and mother-in-law were not supposed to get along.
So, I misinterpreted a lot of things you said and did, simply because I was expecting the worse. Then I lashed out at you and said some things I should not have said.
But, now that some time has passed, I realize that you donít mean me any harm at all. You actually want to help, and youíre not trying to be intrusive; like I thought.
So, can we please start over?
I promise not to jump to conclusions, and I wonít be on the defensive.
Iíll just live each day as it comes, knowing that thereís nothing we canít work through, together.~
