A quick update to my earlier post….
Bhabhi understood my stress and tension about the name change and has been thinking over the weekend about what could be done.
And she came up with the best answer and one I should have seen for myself. She said that my first letter to them impressed them greatly. They were happy to see how well I expressed my own opinions while being respectful of theirs. They liked my values. They liked me better after reading that first email. So Bhabhi’s solution was for me to write another one to them explaining everything that I explained to you all in this blog.
And I did. And I sent it about an hour and a half ago.
Forty minutes ago, Bear got an email from his father (addressed to both of us and using the name “Aurora”) wishing us great joy and warmest blessings on our marriage. Baba (Marathi for father) went on to say how they wished they could attend our marriage but as they could not be here physically, they were here for us in spirit. They sent their love and all the family’s approval and signed off.
Can you say Incandescantly Happy boys and girls???????? I knew you could! 🙂
