Not Good

Going to be taking a little bit of a blogging break, my dad had a stroke today. He went in to have a cast removed off his wrist and it happened while he was there. I will mention. I am not close to my dad, he has chosen not to speak to me for the last 11 years. It is my mom I'm worried about right now. She is blind, and a diabetic, had a massive heart attach a few years ago. She is so fragile. My dad has verbally and mentally abused her for 61 years and yet she wants to be by his side. This is
hard for me.

I am so sorry to hear this...I know how you feel...only I got a call after 11 years to have someone tell me my dad had passed away...just like that...no words, no reconciliation, no nothing. I am here to tell you the pain from that is so hard to live with...even if it was his choice. I will be praying for you during this hard time in your life....and for your mom too! Blessings.

I am praying for you and your family too, i wish you all the strength for the next while. It is such a hard time, I watched my Dad verbally abuse everyone right up until my Mom passed away. It's very difficult for me to feel anything for him except that he is my father... Take care honey and know that your friends are here for you!!!

I can so relate....never liked my father..let alone "Love" him....he was a very mean man..but, when he passed, he gave me a gift....that of forgiveness......I needed to forgive him so I could move on.....

Coleen

My father verbally abused my precious Momma for 64 years and said she would die before him because she couldn't live without him. She lived for a whole year finally free of his abuse. I did not go when I found he was dieing because I was "on his list" instead I took care of Momma and rejoiced that she had that year of independence. I KNOW how you feel and I promise to keep you in my prayers in the coming days...blessings, dear one, may God heal the hurt enough that you will KNOW you are loved by the best Father of all...God YOUR heavenly Father.

I remember reading this post last week and am surprised to find that I did not leave a comment. I hope your father is feeling better and that you and your Mom are handling this well. Keep your spirits up.
