On a side note to all...It seems like I'm always stressing huh? Well...lately it has been VERY stressful with my dad. I knew what I was getting into when I decided I'd take care of him being that I appreciate him and my mom for adopting me when my biological mother didn't "want" me. If you know or care for someone with Alzheimer...you know how heartbreaking that is and therefor understand where I'm coming from.
I actually got an email once from a reader who asked why I complained so much about my dad and why not just stick him in a nursing home. Well...that email broke my heart and I just deleted it. But if that reader is still reading...I take care of my dad because it's in MY nature to do that. He was there for me since before birth taking care of my when my mom wasn't able to because of a little something she went thru...so I say to myself...who am I now to turn my back on him after all he did for me that he really didn't need to. He could have easily told my mom..."you know...I don't want to adopt"...but he didn't...and that's why I stick with him.
I know this is a blog for stamping projects and what have you...but I'm also an open book. I don't try to keep anything in. I'm not looking for people to feel "bad" for me...I just want to share myself. If anyone doesn't want to read about me...it's as easy as flipping a page. Anywho...for those who have been there for me...I am more greatful than you will EVER know...even with simple words and virtual hugs. You are my angles that bring a smile to my face.
So...this is why I've been MIA. Recently my dad has been crying off and on about his daughters who live in Mexico and are aging and have become ill. He's also been seeing his late wives come to his side. Us being superstitious...we don't see that as a great omen. So when my mom told me what my dad's been "seeing" I nearly lost it. I too have been crying...but because my heart aches at his troubles. Even now I'm crying writing this.
SO...yes Nic...this card came at such a PERFECT time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And another thanks to those who are virtually there for me as well. LOVE YA!
