Creepy gift

First off, let me state that I love my grandma dearly. But I got gift that kind of creeped me out. She sent me a birthday card with a picture of my little second cousins. That was not at all creepy; in fact, it was cute. The creepy part was the fact that there was a picture of my dead grandfather (who I also love) blended in. He died before my second cousins were even born. No it looks kind of like he's looking at them as they play. I can see why whoever did this thought it would be a cool thing. But too me, it's plain disturbing. Because I love all the people photographed, I don't want to through away the picture. At the same time, I don't feel like I will be well if it remains on my fridge (where I had my assistant put it). What to do? What to do? How do I not offend anyone, but at the same time guard my sanity.

I'm sure your grandmother had the best of intentions when she had this picture done. It is definitly different. Some would think it was pretty cool and others would be like you and think it was creepy. I'm not sure how I'd feel. No one has ever given me such a gift. I think that since it is bothering you so much that you should put it in a photo album where you at least don't have to look at it daily. You gotta admit it....you do have a very creative grandmother there.

why don't you try to cut the picture and in that way you get tow pictures one for your late grandfather and the other one for your cousin that way will not offend anyone i think your grandma will understand this and maybe she will like it because it will show how much you love your grandfather.

Well, first off, happy late birthday! Perhaps in you can write a thank-you note for the thoughtful card she put together for you, noting how though you loved it, how it was sad to see your grandfather who you miss so much, especially with others who are still young and never got the chance to meet him. I think that's what I'd do myself.

keep in in a draw where you don't have to see it, unitl your grandma pays you a visit and then you can put it on display till she goes again, that why your not creeped out long-term and she isn't offended when she sees it
