I put a "cryptic" post on my FB, but got no opinions, so I'm turning to all of COTH for advice and wisdom!!
~~ my niece had a conversation with me recently, and told me that my sister misses us, and wants to find a way to have some sort of relationship. We have not spoken since 2005, and I told my niece that if this was the truth, my sister should start with my boys and give them the things that my mother gave to them before she died.
~~ my son got a text from my niece saying my sister would be willing to give my boys their items, but that I have to "turn over" my mother's wedding rings for this to happen.
Your sister made an attempt to make peace with you and your response was "I want my stuff first."
Her answer was, "Okay, then give me my stuff."
If this was about your relationship with your sister, then re-establishing that might have led to renegotiating for the stuff, but not now.
A helmet saved my life.
