Money can cause so much drama!

Thank God that my Mom doesn't have any. She has a very rich son that supports her. Her home is in his name. His HOUSE, our home.He bought it for her and has been paying all her bills for many years. She always says she is happy she has nothing to fight over.

My Fathers wealthy aunt passed SIX years ago (on her 99th birthday) and my sister has caused SO much DRAMA and hard feelings over it for all this time. ( Its still is in litigation)

I don't get it. Take what you are given. It's MONEY! Is it worth more than the respect of your mother and siblings? I had lived out of state for over 30 yrs when her will was made. I THANK GOD she forgot me.

The last time I saw her I was in my forties and looking every day of them. I walked up to her after having not seen her in at least 25 yrs and she said " Boni! You are still so PRETTY!"

THAT was worth way more than a million dollars, any day.

Wow. Sorry I missed your vent Bon !! Did you get some sleep?

It would be lovely to have siblings that are kind and helpful. Those that aren't need to just stay as far away as possible so not to cause any more stress/problems than you have on your hands already. I think they just like drama no matter what. Your brother sounds awesome and bless him for being so generous to mom and you! That is what real family should be like. Not just finances either, I mean the support!!

Let us know how you are doing today :)

luv ya gf !

It's coffee liquor and not very strong. Would rather the Valium......or a joint. Just making due tonight. It's extra hard taking care of Mom with no sleep.

True, but easier said than done Bob. Here I am ,1 am, tried to sleep but couldn't stop hearing her nasty words. So back up, smoking cigs and on the computer. I am out of Valium and have a feeling it's gonna be a long night. I wish I drank, lol. The only thing I have in the house that I like is Kahlua, but the caffeine probably negates the alcohol effects.

a pretty wise hospice counsellor ( fk spell check ) told me that the death of an elder either brings sibs together or splits the family further . my sisters and i seemed to have dropped the old sibling rivalrys when mom died but it isnt like were great friends or anything . if you could just remember to not let a troublemaker / gossip get under your skin , boni , youd win a thousand times over . cuz and both of her sons have really cut loose on me a couple times in the last year . i tell them its ok , tensions just run high at such an emotional time as and elder failing and dying . they aint sure whether to love me or hate me but one things for certain -- theyve found a family member who doesnt exite easily ..
" meh "
thats isnt just brit slang , its an attitude that can keep ya calm thru about anything ..

Money is not the root of evil, envy is.
Sounds like bro has used his money in a kind and loving way. Beautiful example.
As for your sister, envy and karma are b---s and they always get you.
You are a kind and loving person and have a good brother, focus on that.

No, it's her. She is the common denominator in any and all the family drama. The others all see it, and suffer for it too. We stick together and support each other and when Momma is gone....so is she. We are just not wishing for Mom to die soon, like she is.
