the family of my mom was different from what the family i observed everyday, they are not closed. my mom's brother and sisters are too greedy. they always quarrel. my mom never argue with them, even they made mistakes to her still my mom love them. few words my mom left to my sisters before she died, she said "she love her siblings and parents even they don't love him". it hurts to all of my siblings. we cried so much because of her words. we her children are closed to each other, they train us to be good and not imitate what her siblings and parents did. my mom's life were shorten because of them.

Many of us like your mom, love unconditionally. Those who love unconditionally have the strength of the spirit and boundless generosity of heart. Lucky are those who has that kind of people in their lives and lucky are you to have a mom like that. However, I do wish that you won't keep on thinking that the life of your mom was shortened because of them because it would only breed bitterness. Your mom was happy doing and loving her siblings and family even if they may not deserve her devotion. Those who has such capacity to love won't be happy too if they cannot express it. Think it that way. I am glad to know that you are close to your siblings because in this life, things do get so rough and difficult and it is always comforting that one could go and seek shelter with ones siblings.

My father's side of our family had several cousins etc. To this day I don't even know them. I did know a couple of cousins on my mother's side. My children are all spread out across Texas so we don't get much chance to visit. My oldest daughter is I a "Me" person. Her world revolves around her. There is a running joke in our family cause she was so hard to deal with as a teen and now she is getting paid back by her oldest who turns 13 this year. My step daughter and my younger daughter and son are very close and help each other a lot. They stay in contact with us better than my older one does. I just worry about what will happen when I die cause I feel that they will be only thinking about what they think they will inherit. They may get a big fat surprise cause I have been thinking of having an estate sale of things so they will not argue. The joke will be on them. LOL!

I'm so sorry about that. Yet, people living in this world have different attitude. As I have observed with my kid's, we have the same treatment with them, we treat them equal and no favoritism, yet, seems we have differences already since we born by our parents. My kid's already have their own character as of this date, and we are doing our parts to teach them already what is good and what is bad, especially treating each other.
