A Big Surprise for me on Mother's Day from YSD
Yesterday morning I recieved a voicemail from YSD along with SGD leaving me a surprisingly very nice voicemail. Wishing me Happy Mother's Day, even ending the message with YSD telling me they love me very much
I was dreading any of the usual nonsense and waiting for something to happen to show me all was a slap in the face but couldn't help but think it actually sounded sincere from them
A little bit later on the most stunningly beautiful flowers arrived, with an emotional note with again mention that they love me so much
I was really surprised, tentatively pleased, and waiting for the 'catch'...you know like last year when YSD posted on FB for the world to read how much she loved the "mama's" that do so much for them - BM and YSD's MIL. No mention of her SM of 24 years in that post and the one thing she sent to me was insulting rather than kind and it really ticked me off back then
Later in the evening yesterday I see YSD has tagged me in a post on FB and I thought oh here we go, this is the kick in the face
Well what a shocker. It was absolutely the opposite!
She wrote quite a touching post about how trying the last few months/year had been, how thrilled she was to be a mother, and how she wanted to thank the three mother's in her life, who have helped shape who she is.
They were mentioned, and in this order: BM, Disillusioned (Me! Wow) and MIL
Really and truly surprsied and pleased.
DH literally cried it moved him so much
And DH & I agreed that perhaps the last couple years I've been "hands off" as DH politely put it, maybe made YSD think about things and realize she needed to change.
Not sure where we go from here. I did go out of my way to really thank her for everything and make sure she knew how much it meant.
Yes I'm confused once again when it comes to her, but nothing I can possibly complain about from her yesterday!
