I have a feeling I'm going to be dealing with this again over the next while.
Yesterday I threw a baby shower for my daughter-in-law. I sent out around 50 invitations. Family (which is huge), Church Friends, and Friends from around town. Wanna guess how many showed up? I can tell you who it wasn't - Not a single family member. Not one single church friend. 14 cancellations 1 hour before the shower. 4 friends. That's it - 4.
It's the story of my life. A half dozen came to my bridal shower. Two came to my one and only baby shower. About ten to my wedding. About five came to the surprise party I threw for my husband. Yet, all of these same people I invited, always want us at their parties, showers, weddings, etc. But they never ever come to our parties or showers. Why is this? Why are we the ones that can just be tossed to the side?
I was so embarrassed. I'm so hurt. But at least I know where I stand with people.
