Grandmother estranged

Good afternoon Claudette:

Awww come on y'all. What's going on? Why are we posting fragmented statements? Too proud to say that our hearts are aching? Too proud to say we miss our families?  Too proud to figure out how to fix things with the folks that we love?  Why not?

This is a cold world that we live in. Our children need us. We need them. At least try, make amends, apologize, tell them what they did wrong, tell them what you did wrong. Try to open the lines of communication with your most precious, albeit flawed, commodity. At least you'll be able to say you tried. I have apologized to my adult children. And I have most assuredly told them when they were wrong. It takes time. Be the adult, make the first move, and then wait.  If they don't respond, you'll be able to say that you tried. I've been estranged from all my children.  My relationship with my mother was very painful. However, I broke a cycle and used that pain to walk another path with my adult children. My Mama is gone, and when I conjure up memories about that pretty woman, I am most proud that I didn't repeat the pain or the estrangements.  It wasn't easy but it sure was worth it. And don't ever believe that your problem is unique. Read some of the sad posts on this helpful forum, and break or start a new cycle within your familial circle.
