Just a bit of a vent...
Both of my parents are passed. My Dad not being here is the hardest, he's only been gone 5 years and planning the wedding without him has been tough.
My family got smaller when Mom & Dad passed, my mother especially wasn't the greatest at keeping in touch with her family.
So it's my sister, her family and my brother and his family. There's a little dysfunction in my brother's family and a niece and nephew who may not come to the wedding because they are not speaking to their parents.
My only living cousin on my Dad's side called last night to say they can't come due to a hip replacement his needs. I completely understand that, and want someone to take care of themselves first before worrying about our wedding.
I'm just feeling so awkward, because my FH's family is huge! I am grateful however to be marrying into such a large family.
I guess it really comes down to missing my Dad. But overall, I want to let go of the weirdness I'm feeling about the small representation of my family! Why should I care what other people think, right? Everyone has their own situations and circumstances going on and I'm grateful those on my side who can be there, will be.
Anyone else with really small families you could almost fit at one table? Again, I am grateful for the family I have.
Thanks for reading my vent..
