I'm not quite sure how to put this in words, but a conversation I had with my brother today made me sick to my stomach. Delicate topic and then I had to convey it all to my parents with my brother in the room. I was scared, nervous, and still don't really know how to help. But it definitely opened my eyes!
This year, I want to do a better job at keeping up with my family and supporting them through times of need. I want to call them more often and actually find the time to have meaningful conversations with relatives, rather than the usual "I'm just calling to say hi. I really don't have a lot of time." conversation. It's sad that life has become this way - where I don't even have time to pay enough attention to everyone that means so much to me.
All this to say, I had a rough evening that made my goal even stronger.
I need to be there for all of them! It's the least I can do.
