Dear MamaO -
I know that you don't have it so easy right now. You married into this family - and for better or worse you are putting up with it. You are not one to walk away from a situation unless nothing else can be done. And in that sense you are so much like me.
You often wonder, if I were there right now, what would I do.
First, I'd steal the bread you just buttered off your plate.
Then I'd put all these people in their place. I may bail them out, but I do not suggest you do it. I would bail them out to keep a roof over my head, remember I lived there too.
You are strong, stubborn, and the woman for the job. That's why I hired you when I could. Do not bail on the now. Keep making them face their issues and stand on their own feet. If they don't stand on their own feet now, they never will.
And love your husband for me.
PS. That little man of yours should've been named J.A.
