Late night Phone call


I got a phone call last night. It was from someone I hadn't heard from in over 10 years. It was a distant relative, who had called, Not to ask how I was doing but to ask for financial aid. She's an elderly woman, who has two adult sons, and they evidently aren't helping her out. She told me that she needed the money to pay for her medication. I agreed to help her out. I don't have deep pockets but I do believe in helping family. I told her I would send what i could spare.
This got me to thinking. why is it that families drift apart? Why is it that the only time you hear from them is when they are in need? How hard is it to just pick up the phone and say Hi... How have you been...Whats new with you.... Most of my family lives in the same town, but we hardly see each other let alone call to see how they are. We are lucky if we meet for the holidays. Is my family the only one like this? I wish it weren't so. The last time we all gathered together was for my parents 50th anniversary. That was 5 yrs ago.
