Mom and I have had an…interesting relationship, let’s say.
Over the years, there’s been periods when we haven’t spoken, spoken too much, or spoken too harshly.
As of late, I’ve been trying to schedule a weekend to go visit her (she lives about 4 hours away) with my wife and kids.
Couple days ago, I put her on the spot and Facetime’d her and we set up a weekend visit in November.
Then she texts me the next day that she has to cancel, and the reason is because she has to finish a project she’s working on (mind you: she is unemployed, lives alone, and has never met my wife or youngest two kids).
Turns out, the project she’s working on is trying to finish building a cabin up in the mountains before the winter season gets too harsh.
And I don’t think my 73 year old mom is gonna be up in the mountains with a hammer and nails, sweating and cursing and throwing wood boards around.
But I think what she means is, supervising construction.
Anyway, my point in telling you this story is that family relationships can get weird.
And your old pal p-denni’s family is no exception to this rule.
And it can be difficult at times to plan for the future, especially when so much seems to depend on talking things out with your family, and making decisions about money, property, or how to care for your spouse or children in the future.
Good news is, there are ways to bring clarity to your future, by setting up an affordable living trust.
There are ways you can care for and provide for your love ones, and still manifest your wishes and dreams for the future.
Without having awkward conversations.
And without waiting around for decades old “family stuff” to resolve itself (hint: it likely never will).
You can get started today, in fact, just by talking with me about your options.
Although I can’t help fix your relationship with your mom (I can’t fix mine either), there are a lot of things I can do to help you alleviate the stress, anxiety, and worry rooted in fear of the unknown.
And you’ll be surprised to find out it’s not as scary as it seemed at first.
