I love it, this is very cathartic.

My mom and I get along well. She is a middle aged divorcee AND widow who is totally on the prowl. My husband and I support her a lot. She lived with us for a while after she left my dad. She's a conundrum really. We're great friends but I am getting too old to see her packing a shag bag and sneaking out the back door... :shock: :shock:

My father and I haven't spoken in 9 years. Sadly he's a violent alcoholic. It was all well and good when I was young because, hey, you learn to live with these things. Then it was fine after I moved out because I didn't have to live with it. When I had my son though, I told him he had to get sober to see him... He chose the booze.

My parents weren't the best in the world but they never put vanity above us. We had love all the way and i believe they are a big blessing from God!
