My middle niece, Eboney, called me this morning with her happy news that she got engaged late last night!
I am very happy for her and I think she has made a good choice as the young man seems to be a hardworking, kind, goodhearted person.
Eboney is a mature young woman and very sweet. She and her fiance have a lot in common and should do well together.
So what's the problem??? Mom.
Ever since she found out that Eboney was seeing this guy, all she's basically done is talk about
what a big step marriage is and thought of every negative possibility that could arise!
It gets on my nerves so bad that I could scream! Why can't she just be glad for her granddaughter? Why does she have to be a negative-Nellie? Why suck the joy out of everything? WHY?!?!?
Mom still hasn't met the guy yet (I have and I like him!) It's not that she expects to dislike him, but she just has such a negative view about
her granddaughters getting married.
I try to be a voice of reason in all of this. I think she's well-aware of what I'm doing. But I just have to say SOMETHING!
Oh well, I can't change my Mom, but I just had to vent. Thanks for listening!
