Relate Heck I feel everything you are saying right down to my toes
Only it was my Mom that used her "SILENCE" as a weapon prior to the Alzheimers and it hurt so much more than any nasty words ever could have at least for me
In turn I finf I wa shutting peeps out 'I know I cannot do that to my daughter will not have her feel the pain i felt and still remember oh to vividly
Those parenting handbooks are non existent we do what we can the best way we know how
The biggest things we need to have for our children is the
Acceptance of one anothers flaws
Being able to know love is there w/o saying it all the time
Yet hearing 'I love you " and knowing it comes from the heart feels sooo good too
I was the only sibling that did anything /all for my parents and still am ( mom passed almost 8 mths ago ) UNLESS there was something in t for them they could not be bothered
Teach our children to have Empathy
Communicate thats a biggie because of moms Weapon.......
Your daughter knows she is pushing those buttons that hurt you the most IMO I may be wrong but .....
If she dont want to talk write her a long letter of what is has and will go on in your lives
I would love the chance to tell her time is way to short for this I NEVER thought I would be without Mom and here I am,stummbling and struggling thru every dang day w/o her it will get easier all tell me I am sure it will but right now I wish I could have back all those "SILENT MOMENTS" in time with her
If I knew then what I know now::: YOU are a great mom know this and stay strong in this
I am glad you have become an active member of HW and part of our Lil Family........
You will always find support her never judgement or rudeness
We ARE your soft place to land okay
You be well
It will get better I think perhaps if you write that letter or Hog tie her lol.....kidding ........she is wasting precious precious time and memories are being lost by this
I hope things change for you's real quick
You be well
Great input sista mine ........Luvs ya
Always remember we are here ...........you are Canadian too EH lol
