SOME FAMILY DRAMA
I invited Tony to stop by last night for dinner. He was at the hospital all day and didn’t get anything to eat. I let him know that my home was his home. He came by and ate his fill and stayed to chat for a while before going back to his mother’s home to spend the night.
Isn’t there always some family drama? I don’t interact as much because of it. And I’m talking both sides of our family. You always hurt the ones you love. So so true! I was a stressed single mom and I regret all the yelling I did when raising my child. He was such an easygoing kid and the light of my life. He didn’t deserve to be the brunt of my mistakes. I’ve told him over and over how much I love him through the years, and I pray it overrode any drama he endured.
My sister took drama to a whole new level. Unfortunately, her kids became as stressed out as she was. She forgot to tell them she loved them. Tony became an over-achiever trying to measure up. He shared that with me once.
So that accounts for my son removing himself from his cousins and not speaking to them. When he started his family, he did not want that negative coming to his wife and children.
I stayed away from Joyce for a few years because she can be so nasty at times. Our mother was friendly and upbeat, so I don’t know where it came from. Could be depression which nobody knew about in year’s past? There just always seemed to be a black cloud following her. Her kids became clones of her. Tony left after he graduated high school to escape it. Carol stayed and some of her drama hit the family and me. I had to chastise her once for the way she talked to me. I told her to leave until she could straighten up her attitude. She did try and apologized to me. I welcomed her back. She truly was trying.
So here we are. Clyde is starting to look like the bad guy because he stopped talking to both of them; He never explained to them what the problem was. The enemy deserves to know what he’s being accused of. He didn’t know how to put it in words. So, I pray that my son finds a way to forgive them and get back to speaking terms.
There’s a whole lot more to this story but I am going to stop here and hope that you got a little bit of an understanding of my explanation.
I really love my sister, just not her ways. And what she is going through is hitting me hard now.
We have a lot of snow falling all day long and it’s getting high. My new snow service will be out around 6:00 pm.
I got to go now!
