    So sorry to read the above Babs, I think the way you are feeling needs to be expressed to your family
    closing down on communication may be a mistake :)

    Where is this? I'm out right now and there's no crowds.

    Since online shopping the crowds get smaller and smaller each year

    You are right @Patsy Faye....and I did express my feelings to my family but it's funny how now days your kids are so self-centered and don't want to hear how you feel. Just keep your mouth shut and do what you want them to do....and everything is fine. But I can't do just what they want anymore...and I don't want too. I want to know that I'm loved and respected just for me too.

    Sending you HUGS, @Babs Hunt . I am sorry that your Thanksgiving didn't end up like you thought it was going to do, and I think that this is something that all of us face, or at least some of us do, as we get older. Ina and I have talked about this very same thing, and it has even been the topic of threads on this forum about how sometimes we seniors feel isolated from our families.
    Some families are still closely involved and do not seem to feel isolated, and that is a wonderful thing when they can all still interact together, and this seems to be something that other cultures seem to grasp better than Americans do sometimes.
    I look back and think about when my parents were older, and my life was so hectic, and just trying to work and take care of my kids was my main concern, and I didn't even think much about that my parents might be lonely, and looking forward to our visiting them.
    Now, I can look back and wish that I had had more time to spend with my mom and dad when they were still alive.

    @Yvonne Smith...thank you for understanding. I realize more and more that our children are just growing up in a different World and they are choosing materialism, etc. over home and Family. I have spent the last few years praying and talking to my children about how important family is...but they are making their own choices on this, and after living with abuse and just taking relationships....I will not spend the few years I have left on this earth living with people, even family members who choose these one way relationships. Facing this today really hurts deeply but I want the last years of life spent with real Family...that respects and loves me as much as I love them.
