I'm feeling kind of hurt and am needing to hear some other perspectives on this. My mother's day was horrible. My mom can't stand my mil and this is nothing new, but it's always an issue around holidays. I never know how to be fair and really would like some peace for all involved, but she just doesn't seem to see any other side but her own. This year, I thought we could invite both moms over for a little dinner on mother's day. Both got a pretty hanging plant. I wasn't meaning to hurt anyone. I was trying to support my husband, who also would like to honor his mom. It's hard to go to two different places on the same day to celebrate with two different people, too. My mom was so angry. She said she did not want to ever share her holidays with *her*, and that next year I shouldn't even invite her (my mom) so she wouldn't have to turn me down. I tried to explain that there were three moms and only one mother's day, and that I was in the middle and trying to respect everyone involved. I know my mom hates my mil, really hates her, but I'm so tired of all the bitterness and hate. I don't think she'll ever change. I know in my heart that I've been a good daughter, but this is all so sad. I feel that mother's day will be tainted from now on. I know that I should try to adjust my feelings, but it's hard when it comes to my mother. Anything I am missing here?
