You are not going to believe what I did. I decided, after giving it a lot of thought, that I wanted to let go of this anger & resentment towards my brother (see my previous posts). I wrote him a letter last week to let him know that Mom is now in the advanced stages of Alzheimers and is now in a nursing home. Lo and behold, he called me and says he's sorry and that he is going to make plans to come and see Mom. I guess I'm a little skeptical, but have to wait and see if it happens. I'm not completely over my feelings, but feel good that I contacted him. We spoke for well over an hour and I brought him up to date on Mom's condition. I will let you know what happens. Keep me in your prayers.
