Surprise phone call

For all you fine folks who have normal, loving family, go you! One of my sisters called me. What to say about her? She's a physical wreck. Her health makes her sound like she is eighty not seventy. Her phone call left tons too much baggage for me to think about. I need to declutter my heart cause of the phone call. My mental closet needs to be deep cleaned now. Her son pushed her down?? What? I never trusted that guy and I always wondered how he got such a fantastic house when he has never held a normal job in his life. On and on..... family visited my Mom's grave site but nobody invited me to go on the trip. Got to deep breath this out. And renew my resolve to never live near any of my family. Ever. Keep them away. Far away. My heart can't stand being near them and their illness. And yet I am sorry for the sister who called me. We had good times together at one point. She has been the down to earth one. I guess all parties come to an end sometime.

I think every family has some baggage. A black sheep or two. It is so hard to do the tough love we have to do sometimes. Yes, all parties do come to and end at some point. Growing up and moving through life isn't always easy on our hearts.

I don't have family I talk to anymore, I basically divorced my only sibling and since I haven't seen any of my cousins since I was about 13 I'd say I have no need for them now. Sometimes friends make better 'family' than family does.
