I grew up in a very close knit family. I'm the youngest of 4 siblings. My brother is the oldest, followed by my 2 sisters. Very sadly the younger of my 2 sisters was in the life battle with lung cancer this time last year, which she lost in mid January. During that tragic time my older sister took the roll of the primary care giver and the rest of us played supporting roles. During the stresses of this time my sister-in-law and my sister had quite a falling out. My brother, for his own reasons supported his wife and my older sister for worthy reasons has never gotten over the tragedy or the falling out. Over the year the falling out has only grown as they are all members of the same golf club but connected to different clique's. My sister and her husband stanch conservative, my brother and his wife stanch liberals. Well they have spent the year shining each other on and playing what I consider goofy games. My role has been sounding board and neutral observer just in hope that the dust would settle and they would come to their senses. Now the escalation has taken an extreme turn to worse. My sister-in-law confronted my sister and all Hell has broken loose. I have no doubt that my brother or my sister would come to the aid of each other in a pinch but they have a hard time swallowing the past sillinesses and intense hurt feelings. The bottom line is I've had about enough of this crap and need to do something about it and it sure sucks, in the Holiday Season, to have families in the throws of feuds. .
