Then someone else posted about how they didn't know when their daughter got married. (Can't remember who...) It got me thinking..."
That would be me.....Annie, with the daughter who got married and didn't bother to tell US, her parents........one thing I didn't mention was, that as hurt and as pissed as I was, I went to a gift shop and bought a pair of beautiful crystal doves and a very carefully chosen theocratically-correct card (no "good luck" to the bride and groom) and had them sent to her (them). I signed the card with something like "wishing you a very happy and full life together", and signed it "with love always, Mom and Dad"
Talk about the "olive branch" approach, AND I was carefully avoiding the brutal fact that we had not been invited to the special event, but pretending NOT to notice their "oversight" (cruelty) in sending us an invitation.
WEEKS later, I get a card, saying "thank you for your gift, we will enjoy it"....so generic it stunk, and not a peep on how pretty the birds would look on their mantle, nothing to personalize it at ALL,etc...it burned me up even MORE than I was already!
Can you guess what MY advice is? lol! Don't send them ANYTHING!!!! It probably wouldn't be appreciated anyway, and I wouldn't bother. The way they acted--they don't deserve it!
MY thoughts on this.
