December Surprise

Thank you all for the condolences regarding my mother-in-law’s death that you sent me in comments and e-mails. The past ten days were very stressful and tiring; your kind words brightened some very dark days.

My mother-in-law was a kind-hearted person and made a lot of sacrifices during her life to help strangers and relatives alike. She was very fashion-conscious and had a wardrobe that rivaled my own.

She was also very old school and did not approve of Stana. I never dressed en femme in her presence, so I don’t know what she thought I was doing when I crossdressed, but I learned through another relative that her son, my brother-in-law, convinced her that I was “mentally unstable.”

As a result, my feelings for my in-laws cooled after that. For my wife’s sake, I went along and acted as if I did not know anything, but it upset me. To alleviate the hurt, I hatched a plot where I would show at my in-law’s Christmas family get-together dressed to the nines.

I never carried out my plan in deference to my wife, but it made me smile whenever I thought about it.

  1. I liked you plan - Nice to see you back.

  2. I suppose we must forgive those who don't or won't try to understand what makes us tick. But you were very kind to bite your proverbial lip and simply not indulge further their opinions of you as unstable. People are who they are and a product of their prejudices and lack of understanding for others seems to reign in this world. My condolences to you and your family Stana.

  3. Good to have you back. Condolences on your loss. But I must say I have fantasized about pulling a similar "surprise" for my family.

  4. Well the ladies and myself are glad that you have returned and are looking forward to hearing all the details that you are willing to express about your future plans etc. Ok, got to go, for all the ladies Ms.Stacey Anne Smith.

  5. I'm sorry that your family has had to suffer a loss, I am sure your wife is in a very hurt and sad realm at this moment, my heart goes out to her! I still have a mom, and that's not fair, she isn't the kind of mom we morn, just feel sorry for! And it was very graceful of you to respect your wife and ignor the ignorance in the room! I hope things can improve for the better in your family. Sometimes a loss inspires a freedom!
