    • I have a good relationship with my parents.  It’s probably not what most people would call close, but it works for us.

      I don’t have any grandparents left living.

    • My dad died when I was young and my grandparent are all dead. My relationship with my mom is one of those you can never please the parent. No matter how hard I try. I call her all the time and try to bridge the gap but it hurts when my sister shows up at her place when I’ve just called and my mom sees her three times a day and she says to me ‘Wendy, I have to go your sister is here‘. I’m the one she never sees you would think she would say, ’ Get yourself a coffee I’ll be with you in a minute Wendy’s on the phone.’ Wishful thinking. :( My best friend Bill always here’s from me after days like that and he says the same think,’ Don’t let it get to you Wendy, it’s her loss. You know how they are.You can’t change them.’ He’s known me since we were 12 yrs old.

      Now that someone special in my life has a great relationship with his parents and I envy it so much. He always says you and my mom would get along so great! We haven’t met YET but I’m so nervous. He say his mom likes things I like and how we‘re alike. Is that good ?

    • Yes that’s good.  And maybe you’ll have the relationship with her that you’ve missed out on with your mom.

      It doesn’t have to be our biological parent who fills our need for a parent.  

      I have an older friend who is like a second mom to me.  It tends to be her I take my troubles to, not my mom.  And that’s ok.  “Family” does not have to be blood.  “Family” is the people God puts in our lives because we need them.

    • I like that saying, "Family" is the people God puts in our lives because we need them.  

      My mom and step-dad live in another state, so it is not easy to see them on a regular basis, but luckily we have a small family cottage that we all gather at in the summer.  My sister and her live-in boyfriend also join us as she also lives out of state.

      My grandparents on my mom’s side are deceased, not sure about my birth father’s parents as I have not seen my father in 34 years.

    • Well both of my parents are dead.  My folks divorced when I was 2 so I wasn’t very close to my dad.  I was much closer to my mom since I lived with her after dad left.

      I never met any of my grandparents.

    • I was extremely close to my Mother she was always one of my best friends and confident. I was close to my grand parents too. My Dad and I had a better relationship as adults than we did when I was younger

    • I am close to my parents and we go out to breakfast almost every Sunday and my mom comes over a couple times a month to see my grand babies.
      I was close to my grandparents but they are gone now.
