Dear Friends,

Dear friends,

First off, what can I say... I just want to sincerely thank everyone for all of their kind thoughts regarding the relationship between my MIL and I.

I received so many thoughtful comments and e-mails that cheered me up so much.
I have never thought that these so many of you would respond to my last post...

Now I admit that my decision to write here was right, venting helped me a lot and knowing that I have so many wonderful friends around me gave me much energy and courage.
Even though I have never met you before, and won't be able to meet you probably in my life, I realised that I have so many special friends in the world.

Your words truly cheered me up, made my heart warm, and made me decide to go forward, that meant to me so much.
I red your comments and e-mails in tears, I was very touched by every single words from you, thoughtful words towards me, they all made me blinded with tears.

As reading your comments and e-mails, my mind is getting become clearer than before and I decided not to see her anymore as much as possible.
(But it's Japan, it's hard to part from them actually...)
But I will take your advices with me next time I have to see her or talk to her, and I will try not to take what she says to heart.

I do really appreciate for your thoughtfulness from the bottom of my heart.
I can never thank you enough...

I do hope this message of appreciation will reach you who didn't have their e-mail address in the comment that I couldn't reply back...
Annie, Amy in Oklahoma, Tanya, Linda, Harmien, KarenV, Vaida, Marnie, Dora, Tammy, and Jurga, Thank you so much for your encouraging words and supports.

Lili, Andrea, Angela, Nina, Julie, I will e-mail you later tonight.

It's pity that my English is not good enough to express my emotion and appreciation to you all.
I will never forget about your kindness.

So sorry you have been having a hard time with your MIL. I have a hard time too. People who treat other people this way are not very secure people and usually do not like themselves very much. You are indeed a very beautiful person and precious to God. Sending hugs. xx
