Nearly 20 yrs ago, I provided a home for my mother and life long disabled brother when hers fell into dangerous disrepair. I live 3 hours away. She owned the acreage but transferred title to me when my brothers stated they could not pay the yearly property taxes. I have provided all maintenance, appliances, groceries, vet bills and a multithousand new heat and air system. My mother passed away and a brother moved in to care for my disabled brother. He is finally working and buys their groceries. The only other expense they have is utilities. Though I own it all clear, I never asked for a dime from my mother or my brothers. I regularly send a "care" package to them of favorite homemade cookies, household items, clothing, holiday presents, etc. I sent them a big box of chocolates with handmade valentine. I scheduled my brother's COVID vaccine. My issue? They never call to say thank you, never make an effort to show appreciation or acknowledge that to give to them takes away from my earned retirement. I'm fortunate that my husband doesn't complain, but I'm finding it harder to accept their sense of entitlement and lack of gratitude. I've made it clear it hurts me. I am the oldest and only sister. I know God teaches us to do good acts of love without the reciprocation of thanks, but I want to handle it better. Short of stopping with the care packages, what can I do? They seem to have no concept of how it takes from my life.
