My mom got married
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
My mother has gotten remarried. I have never seen her so happy. I can't believe it. She's been cheated on, used and sucked dry. For years that's how her relationships have been. I'm so happy for her, I'm scared to death, too.
My new stepfather is great, but I'm still nervous. Growing up all I've known was my mother getting hurt. So, even though I like this guy, I'm scared. Ugh.
I'm mostly happy though. My mom deserves this. She deserves to have someone in her life that treats her well, and isn't going to suck her dry. She deserves to feel safe and happy. I want this to be it for her. I don't think the man would have married her if he had any ill intentions. His family was way too involved in the wedding for him to be faking. So I have some confidence there. I really do.
Part of me, though, and this is so very selfish....feels like I lost my mom a little. I've been a itty bitty jealous this past year of the lack of time I get with her. My new sister sees her more.....ugh. I'm such a child.
I love my mom so very much. I AM happy. Truely I am. I love my new Dad and my new sister. They are fantastic, they truely are.
