Merry Christmas Beverly,
I am just sitting here, and it is late. I worked until 10:30 tonight. I just ate a bowl of bean soup and some corn bread that my hb made while I was at work. It was nice to come to a warm home cooked meal after working all day. I so appreciate him. I feel so fortunate to have such a compassionate husband. I don't know what I did to deserve it, but I am so happy that I have him by my side. Work has been difficult. We have a new district manager and he made a lot of changes in the store. Everybody is up in an uproar right now. I just do my job. The best that I can.
Beverly, if you are going to do this part in the wedding as you seem that you are, why don't you try to be happy about it. Give her away with a smile. You bought the dress, right? Be happy for her the best that you can. I know that you don't want her to marry this guy. But she is going to and you are taking part in the wedding, so make it a happy time. Enjoy it. I think you would feel better if you did. It is all in our attitude about things as how we are going to feel about it. Just like my job. Everybody is complaining about it, well, I just do it and smile. What can I do? Be miserable like the rest of them? No way... If I did, I would hate my job. And I don't want to do that. I spend too much time there and if I didn't like it, then I would be miserable too. So we can change our way of thinking about things, and make them much more pleasant to ourselves.
I am sorry that the woman was so callased. She basically was rude and that wasn't called for. But you have to learn to not react to people like that. Just ignore them. They aren't worth all the emotion that you are putting into the situation. What happened is over. I hope that she doen't press charges against you or anything. You had a right to be angry, but I don't know the laws there, but here you would be in trouble for hitting her. If you are, you deal with the consequences of your actions. Or maybe I should say reaction. You will learn to bite your tongue and not to hit. Just think of this as a learning experience. And try not to think of it too much. Deal with it when it happens.
I hope that things work out for you with the wedding and all. Remember that this is your daughters day and that you are going to go with the flow of things. Try to enjoy it. And if you can't then leave and go home or go somewhere else.
I really hope that you are having a happy holiday. I imagine that you are having Christmas right now. Ours is in the morning.
