Over and over again, family members turn away or revive childhood rivalries at times when they're help and support are most needed. What a sad reflection on our society.
As for me, I have benefitted tremendously from reading about others' common experiences here. It has freed me from a great deal of the self-doubt I had when it came to dealing with my siblings. My new "attitude" is that, until they clean up one of Mom's accidents, they kiss me where it came from!
Hang in everyone.
