Shelf still looks nice
Last night I was talking it all over with my husband. At first when I asked what I should do in regards to my shelf with my parents pics and dad's flag he said "LEAVE IT ALONE! WHY YOU THINK YOUR MOM SENT YOU ALL THAT STUFF IN THE FIRST PLACE. If John doesn't like it that is his problem." I said true but I also told him the advice I was getting from Kathy and Jess and how Kathy did remind me that it will all burn in the end(I was chuckling over this). He relized that I was realy stressed about this and was surprised that I had been mulling it over so much. I said I just want John to feel as comfortable as he can in our home and that I want him to see that we will love him. Josh was getting frustrated, guys don't like to get into all that ya know. He said do what ever, I don't care! I said I think I will comprimise and put away just the pic of mom and dad toghether and leave dad's flag and his pic up. He agreed that was fine. But I was hessitating and he got on me to do it now so I will be at peace and not so stressed over such a little thing LOL. The shelf still looks nice, and I still am honoring my father. Tue morning I will put back the pics of mom and dad toghether. And hopefuly I will have a wedding pic of John and Mom to put up in the house soon.
