Today I am going to bring up my personal view on something that may make some of you angry. Please remember this is just my view. Please don’t be offended. You are welcome to disagree, but not to fight or use slanderous terms. This is my life and my feelings on the subject.
D’s Aunt is in town. She and her Girlfriend came to Vegas to get married! When I found out the reason they were coming, I told D. and his mother that I would not be attending the wedding (it was held at the Elvis Chapel) because it goes against my beliefs. I strongly feel that I would be a Hypocrite to stand and witness something like that that I do not believe is right. D. wound up going to be there for the family. His mom could not go because she was working at the church. Of course, she cannot tell the church her sister was in town and getting married. D. said it wasn’t at our church so it should not make a difference, but, it does. It is not something I am comfortable with. I did spend time the day before with his Aunt and my Mother-In-Law baking GF Brownies and Cupcakes. Plus, I will see her and meet her “Wife?” before they leave on Friday.
This reminds me of another time I stood up for how I felt. A friend’s mother died and I hadn’t been speaking to this friend for a long time. Friend called me and told me her mother died and when the service was and said I could come if I wanted. After hanging the phone, I thought I didn’t want to go. I did not feel sorry for friend. She had treated her mother like crap for a long time. I did not want to pretend I felt sorry for friend. So, I sent Flowers or a Plant instead and that took care of the situation. I felt bad for any other family members who may have attended the service.
