That is what my sister used to say to me when she broke her promises to me when I was younger. I often wondered, her being so young, where she came up with the phrase. Growing up, both of us were no strangers to broken promises. A lesson we had to unfortunately learn very early in life.
My mother in law didn't keep a promise to Michael and I and I was very hurt by it. See, Michael and I haven't been on a date in over a year, just the two of us. My MIL promised to watch our kids last night. Seemed she found something else to do and cancelled on us. We don't ask her to watch our kids, b/c others in the family have 'over used' her so to say. But this time she offered. I was so excited to be going out on a date with hubby, then crushed when she casually told me she wouldn't be. She left my house and I just sat down and cried.
I should be used to broken promises by now, but I am not. I take everything to heart.
I started thinking about my worst broken promise. I honestly can't think of a time where I broke a promise so important as to effect someone I loved. Except once where my husband and I ratted someone in the family out for using drugs. This person was into extacy but moved onto cocaine and started doing it around the children. We really had no choice. I wish I could say it did some good.
Have you ever broken a promise to anyone that you can remember and are sorry for it or been on the other end of a broken promise.
