I posted on here under a different name a while ago. My mil was unwell and had now died. I was torn between feeling guilt for doing what i wanted as a new mum and managing Mils expectation. Often i gave into what mil wanted.
Anyway, mil has now passed away. And my fear of being crippled with guilt is not there. I feel sadness and wish i could have had more patience and understanding for her and her situation but i am not drowning in guilt. Before she passed she told me i was like a daughter to her and she was very happy her son had married me. This was a great comfort for me, i always felt i was not good enough and we had challenges but by gods grace we overcome it and in the end we had a good understanding and were glad to have each other.
I wanted to update you all and thank each and everyone one of you for posting. For giving me insight as grandparents and mother in laws and mothers.
In the end all we are left with are memories and our actions. The relationship of Mil and Dil can become very challenging for many. But i am proud and thankful to say me and mil came through it and it ended positively.. X
