I think relatives believe that a relative who never had children owe a debt to the family. God has expanded my arena without birth of babies.
So. I get invited to the
Family Reunion. How much
money do they need?
I know they have not forgotten
how they borrowed my money
two decades ago.
PAY ME, PAY ME!
Could it be the cuz
who sent out the invites does
not need money until now.
It will be hypocritical for
me to act happy: loving maybe,
but not happy to see them.
Any time it takes this much
time to contact me again. Should I
or should'nt I see them again.
The last phone call was ten years
ago, I said, NO! This could be a
set up. I wonder if I should go.

|Like they say, you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family. That said sometimes people have a change of heart. Don't expect your money, love is not not for rent, or sale. Put that behind you and you might actually have a good time. Like I should talk, I haven't had a Thankgiving dinner with my brother in over 25 years. And we actually get along. Patrick|

|Oh yeah ...
you go because you are bigger
than their shortcomings, and you have
something they can only dream about ...
a big ole heart and a lotta talent

|I'd tell 'em to pay up, or you won't go. Simple. Sad; know exactly how you feel!

|Only you can decide. I have a similar situation with 2 of my own children. I can well relate to this. God will tell you what to do, Louisa. God bless.|

|Unfortunately, this is not all that uncommon in families. I can empathize, Louisa. Love and peace to you,
