“I read the piece of paper at the bottom, and he wrote that he had got me a gift for next year’s occasions in advance since he knew he wouldn’t be around much longer. I was absolutely stunned. I looked at the gifts but didn’t open them.”
“There was a gift for my birthday, valentine’s, our wedding anniversary, Christmas, and so on… he said he wanted this gesture to also serve as a comforting method so I wouldn’t feel so devastated since we know that grief gets tense during these times.”
Adam was always incredibly attentive, but this final act of kindness just blew her away.
Yesterday, she left her house to do something, and when she came back, she walked into her house to find that her nephews had opened up every single gift that Adam had left for her, destroying everything.
“I was appalled; my joy instantly faded,” she continued. “I had a huge argument with BIL, but he said the kids were curious and that it was my fault for not concealing my stuff as I should have. I told him he had 3 days to move out, he started ranting about how it’s his brother’s house and how I was ruining family relationships over a “few gifts.”
“MIL got involved and took his side, saying he’s grieving and this is his brother’s house and that I’m acting unhinged. Am I being too emotional? I wanted to feel his presence in his presents this upcoming year, but I feel like it was ruined for me.”
