After posting Wednesday’s blog, I came across another letter. This one was written by our alienating parent to her former mother-in-law, after our alienating parent had moved to Texas.
My mother-in-law’s comment to us when she received this was: “She’s probably hinting for some money.”
We’re willing to give our alienating paren the benefit of the doubt, in that she may not have been hinting for a financial hand-out from her children’s grandmother — and I would hope that she wasn’t — but the important thing to note is the targeted grandmother’s reaction when she read it.
Which might tell us more about her feelings toward our alienating parent, than what our alienating parent would like everyone to believe?
