    It's a testament to your character Bay, that you didn't emulate your mom when it came to raising your own kids.
    And I'm also impressed with your very compassionate treatment of your mother when it was her turn to be needing love and care. You could have justifiably turned away, but you didn't. That's a great example of "turning the other cheek". Good on you sister. :hugs

    @baymule you very well could have turned your mother away. I'm not so sure I could have done that if my mom treated me that way. My mom is different, she didnt really show much affection to us kids growing up, I spent a lot of my childhood living betweent my Aunt and my grandparents. I sure could see a difference between the way my Aunt treated me and the way my mom treated me. I swore I would never treat my kids the way I was treated growing up.
    People learn lessons about how not to treat other people when they are very young. I sure learned mine at an early age.
