I understand what you are going through. It is difficult for sure. My kids run from 28 - 15. My 15 year old is creative, usually does something for us artistically (but she still lives at home).
We had our 25th anniversary and told stories about what we did for our parents, and - nothing. We had our 50th birthdays, nothing. We celebrated our 30th anniversary - nothing. Fathers Day - nothing. Birthday - him nothing, me a chocolate bar. I just don't get it. They expect big doings for them, and we have never dissapointed. It has just always been done in our house. I wonder if they are just thoughtless or are they selfish. I don't know. But if you figure it out, please pass on the knowledge. It hurts, it hurts a lot. Hugs to you.
