I think its great, in theory.
Most people regret in later life that they didn't spend enuf time with their folks "while they had a chance"
Having said that, they are generally not that interesting, compared to real social friends, and there are always a lot of strange familial issues lurking. No family I ever saw was so well adjusted that everyone could be comfortable all the time.
I talk with my dad about the NFL and its great, but its not long before he makes comments about his dad, or grandad or something, that are basically just a bit sad, and I often come away feeling emotionally drained.
So, it's a mixed bag I guess. Like anything in life!

Well our family issues all revolve around my much older brothers basically being horrible. Those never come up, and they actually are extremely interesting. I love to pick their brains on their life experiences. My dad was in the military as well so we kind of share war stories as a sort of therapy, and my mom has been working the same job since I was born so I try to draw from her lessons on commitment and longevity.:)

Give yourself a break. You have been through a lot. You could be doing some very different things. Parents make us feel grounded and secure, if your parents are okay with this, I see no harm. There will come a time when you will move on.

They older and I think my fear of losing either of them may be a factor as well. I'm a big tough Marine but even typing this about losing them kind of chokes me up. I think I just woke up this morning like what should I be doing other than this but I came up with nothing haha
