Aloha Friday



It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog. After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

How close are you/were you with your parents?
I am extremely close to both of mine. My mom is my absolute best friend and my family(which includes my parents and siblings) is my world. We are with them a few times a week and go on most vacations together.

I am quite close with my mother. I wish my father didn't pass away too early. I would have been close to him as well. But I am closest with my sister.

Somewhat close we live near each other but my mom tends to over step sometimes so that hinders things.

I'm close to my parents, but I'm 3000 miles away from them, so I miss them dearly. Email and phone calls have been a lifesaver, though! ;) We'll be moving back to Seattle in the next year or so, so I'll be back 'home' again...can't wait!!

Very close! Sadly, my dad passed away last spring and I miss him terribly. He adored my kids so much and I really miss being able to call him with a funny story or just to talk to him about my kids. My mom lives one street over from us and we do a lot together. She has been pretty lonely since losing my dad, so we go out and do a lot of shopping and lunches together...therapy;o)

Not super close. My family is challenging and I have a lot of wounds from growing up (not physical, like emotional). I am closer with my mom than my dad but I am not super close with me mom. I am actually much closer to my in-laws...often times I call them before I would reach out to my family. And as far as my siblings...I am closest with my youngest brother. My sister and my other brother and I aren't super close.

I don't have a relationship with my dad. My mom lives nearly 11 hours away so it's difficult.

I'm very close to my dad, who raised me as a single parent. My mother and I are slowly becoming closer now that we've gotten back in touch, but it's strained.

We are very close. My Mom, sister and I live within 10 minutes of each other. My Mom is pretty busy with work, but we do get together at least every other weekend for a cookout at one of our houses.

I'm spending the day with my Mom tomorrow.

I hang out with my sister and her boys 2 or 3 times a week.

As close as can be. My father dies in 2000 and even though I visit my mother often...she has Alzheimer's and it can be quite difficult.

I didn't know my mother until I was 23.

I've developed a very good relationship with her now. It can be better but she is in another country.

I am Harriet said...

I actually lost both of my parents last year and I have to say, that I am so grateful for the moments we shared together. Life is short and memories are precious.


Have a great day!

My Mom and I are close, sometimes so close we fight like sisters. My Dad and I are closer now that I'm an adult.

Marie said...

I was not close with either of my parents and was actually raised by my grandparents -- who I was very close to instead. I'm glad I had them! :-)

this is ME - said...

ever since I had my own kids, my parents and I have a better relationship. its been nice to have a common ground now that I'm older.

I was close with both of my parents. Except my mom did live in Vegas for 15 yrs, but before she past she moved back home for a couple years. It was wonderful having her back.

Baba said...

They have both been gone for some time now, but I was fairly close with them both.

Parents are always close to our heart...

Growing up...
As far apart as I could be from them...
THEN... I realized that they are some of the best people I know...

I am very blessed to be extremely close to my parents. We live near them and see them several times during the week. It is nice to see how they interact with my kids and help when we need them.
