It has been many years since my last confession and I’m planning on returning very soon. I tend to belabor over what would be considered a sin and or how to explain it in the confessional. Here is the backstory, twenty seven years ago, when my mother was dying, she asked me to split a significant sum of money with my only brother/sibling. I told him this and he informed me that she had told him for me to keep the entire amount for my then unborn baby as a gift. He refused to split it with me even though I was quite willing to do this. We divided everything else equally. I have always felt guilty for not following through on my mother’s request, but it’s hard to follow through on something he wouldn’t accept. This has always bothered me. I would feel foolish confessing this with a long winded explanation. Ultimately I feel like I didn’t honor her wishes, but it seems like we received different messages.
I have a wonderful, sharing, giving relationship with my brother and it’s never been mentioned again since that time. Am I overthinking this. Thanks for your thoughts.
