Happy Fathers Day!!!
I want to say Happy Fathers Day to all. I have some very nice Fathers out there that follow my blog. And I know that most of my female blogger friends have great husbands and fathers. So happy fathers day.
I was 4 months pregnant when my father was killed in a farming accident. It was fast and over with before anyone could do anything about it. He went to the farm and later that day a nurse called me at work and said your father has been killed and your mother wanted me to call for her. I was in shock. All the way to her home I was praying it was a mistake . That was Oct . 1989. My son was born in April 1990.
I took a pregnancy test that morning because I came over to visit mom and dad for lunch one day and he was cooking. The smell made me very sick . He said you must be pregnant. I never had a reg. period so skipping a month or two was no big deal but I thought about it and said you might be right. In my head I was trying to figure out when my last monthly was. Silly right? Not for me. Anyway the next chance I had I took a home test and it was positive. But I never got to tell dad he was right.
I had my baby boy and mom cared for him while I worked . She said once if not for him she would of died so Thank God for my son . I just wish her and dad were both here healthy and normal so that we could all enjoy growing older together. She is missing what a wonderful man my son has become because of Alz's but she got to help make him that way. My dad never got to meet him at all. So I say now tell your moms and dads how much you love them everyday because tomorrow may never come.
