Hax: Parents' love always feels conditional

Misery takes a seat at this holiday table

Dear Carolyn: My husband left the day before Thanksgiving to attend a funeral. My brother, who lives nearby and whom I haven't seen since last Thanksgiving, was supposed to join us, but has been ill himself and canceled at the last moment. He asked us not to come to his home. My son, home from college after a difficult adolescence, has not spoken to me in nearly a year. He chose to stay in his room for the entire four-day weekend and ignore me and his sibling.
