I suspect this kind of thing lies at the root of a lot of the estrangements here. There's not a mother or a family on earth who haven't made enough mistakes to bring on an estrangement, its just that most people want relationship and reconciliation, so they forgive and move on. Some people don't. They are too stubborn and selfish, and they like to punish others.....

Expectation is a resentment waiting to happen
Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different
Strength to you. Do one thing that is powerful today, even if that means canceling a credit card, writing a thank you note, calling someone who would love to hear your voice, saying "I love you" to someone who loves you back. Hugs to you.
