  1. Sorry I missed this, Maria! I remember you told me you were cutting back on Twitter… I increased my usage. Much more instantly gratifying; I’ve been in such horrid chronic pain, as you know, which just drains me of the energy I need to make blog posts.

    This article reminds me of my mother, especially the day she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Remind me if you read any of my posts about her… they… are not fun. I’m glad you can say you love your father. My mother… no, I cannot say I love her. She violated me horribly. My father abused me, too, but, he realizes his mistakes. My mother… I don’t think she ever will.


  2. Beautiful, poignant, touching and deeply moving post about your forgiveness of your father Maria. It brought a tear to my eye, making me reflect on my relationship with my dad and how I was able to come to that same place of redemption. I am so happy for you that in the end, your father was there for you and that you had the privilige of being there for him. Nothing will ever destroy that. Thank you so much for sharing your heart and for being the beautiful woman, inside and out, that you are today ā¤ xo


  3. What a lovely, tough and moving post. It’s hard to accept the imperfections of those we love – parents most of all. I’m so happy for all your sakes that you came to a place of peace.


    1. Glad you “enjoyed” reading it, Mr. B. I love that photo of us. Unfortunately, Mr. B did not have an eventful Father’s Day because his brickhousechick has been sick all weekend. I was supposed to spoil him but instead (as usual) he ended up taking care of me. I need to make it up to him! šŸ™‚


  4. Thank, Nancy! It took me a while to be able to express my real feelings without guilt getting in the way. I am at peace with all of it and hope he is resting in peace. šŸ™‚


Let it all hang out...
