I hope all the dad's had a wonderful Dad's day. I have been trying to get to my dad's grave all week to visit and put new flowers but have not gotten away. I also have been trying to think of something to write a post about. Alzheimer's or mom and could not think of anything. Than I read Had a Dad's post today and she made me think of something to write. She is a great writer .
I think I might of wrote about this before but I forget . But Dad died when I was 4 months pregnant . My son turned 21 in April so that is how I keep track of how long it has been since dad died. That kind of sucks but it's what it is. He died in a farming accident. I was at work and a nurse from the hospital called to tell me he had been in a accident and died and my mom had told her to call me . Ok have you ever gotten news like that and was able to function. It is hard. I told one of my co-workers what had happened and just left . All the way home I was praying that is was not true or a mistake. Anyway he died fast and was gone in a instant. Mom is dieing slow . She has been dying for so long. We just wake up every morning wondering if today she will turn worse. The nurse says it can happen at any time. And it has a couple of times. But she comes out of it. I am so Thankful when she is back to her normal than I start the waiting game again. Why can't things just be perfect all the time. Perfect birth , life and death. Things don't always work out Perfect. But we seem to always make it through. I am going to get through this. And I do Thank the Lord everyday for my Son . He came at the worse time of my life and has been the best thing that has every happened to me. Hopefully I will get out today. I have not been out since last Sunday not this Sunday last Sunday. Except to the store for a few minutes so that may be why I'm in a crazy mood. I really need to get out of here. It really has been the longest day . Have a great first day of summer.
