    I wish I could say my family's relationship has mended. I have 5 brothers and sisters, all are mad at me. I have tried to contact all of them many times.

    Thank you for sharing this encouraging news! The Christmas season can be difficult for many people - and it is just so neat to hear of a mended family relationship. Hugs to you from Iowa :)

    Building on a relationship-- one suggestion is to make an offer (better in e-mail or letter so she can re-read and re-think her reply) to buy one of her baskets as a gift for someone you know, someone that she does not know. Show her you are proud of her work, and acknowledge her creativity. That is a grand gesture that she cannot ignore. Just don't defeat yourself by bargaining for a discount price!!!! Good luck! Some things cannot be hurried...

    I am very happy for you.
    as has already been said small steps and things will get better in time.
    it took me over 30 years to even get an hallo from my father inlaw, and 33 years to convince my MIL that I wasn't what she thought of me. after I helped to shower her and do little jobs for her after her operation, but she still went to the grave saying I tricked her son into marrying me, it must be the longest trick in history as we have now been married for 46 years. her oldest son still hates me but he hates everyone so that is his problem. he is even turning his own children away from him by the way he shouts at everyone, I am sure he will burst his boiler soon,
    it is so sad when people behave badly everyone suffers one way or another.

    WONDERFUL!!! Life is too short to let petty things keep a person from loved ones! I'm glad she's coming around.

    well, that's great. Glad things are mending but it sounds like your DH is right so step lightly.

    give her a huge long hug when you see her, before she can distance herself. good luck.
