how often do you see your parents?
« on: July 05, 2010, 12:37:00 pm »
i mostly love talking about time cause it really affects all of us..and will always be a part of our life..now when was the last time you visited your parents? or perhaps called them..we've been too busy and has been working all the time and it can't be blamed but won't a few minutes to call them or say hi be a bother..think of the times i mean almost most of our parents life spent to us..i think we still owe to them what we have now so think of visiting them whenever you have time i know no matter how busy we are we'll still should have time for them..so how about calling them and saying hi for a while..

I call my parents every Sunday.

You are right that time is always with us and we are busy....but I always call them.

We try to get to their house two to three times per year.

Mom passed away in 1999 from lymphatic cancer when she was 50.  Dad remarried to a "twit" thereafter.  They are perfect for one another.
Mom held family together.
Have not spoken to my father in a while.
My wifes parents both died in last 4 years from alcohol related diseases, never spoke to them for that reason anyways.  Tough times.
My wife and are both 40 year old healthy professionals. Married for almost 20 years. Children are 16 and 10.

It would have been nice to have normal in-laws, grandparents, close extended family, living relatives.
But my litlle family has each other and very close friends.

But one asks , what is normal?, our extended family are our friends, and living relatives can just get busy living or get busy dying.....

Enjoy the fact you all get to pick up a phone and make a call....

I try to see her every few months, whether she comes down here or I drove up to visit her. She lives about an hour and a half away.

I don't see my parents as often as I would like.  They are divorced, remarried, etc. and live hours away.  Not a very good excuse but hard to find the time!!  Get there when we can!! I takl to my Mom every other day on the phone.  My Dad not as often...maybe once a month.

I don't see my parents anymore because they passed away one in 1987 and the other in 1989. However I think about them alot! And have dreams that they are in, it's so real. I hate it when I wake up!

I just heard stories here that really make me realize how sad live is, parents are important in our lives, I know we get angry with them, we disagree with them, we fight with them, we can have tough times with them... but at the end they are our parents and we know they loves us and we love them... we are attach to them someway and we should remain in contact with them even though we disagree with them... nobody is perfect nor even parents.
My parents are alive, my mother is living with me for now, and my father lives far away but we talk once a week at least on the phone, my in-laws are alive and they lives in PA I talk to them only on special ocasions, but my husband does almost everyday.
