But I get him.
There was a time in my youth where we did not see eye to eye. Things happened and I left home at a very young age. As a young adult, my father decided he couldn't right his wromngs with me but he could apologize and then start over with a young new wife. I accepted his apology becausue at one point in my life, my dad was my best friend, my rock. And my dad did a pretty fine job with his new wife and their little boy. He even got a new daughter out of the deal and was given the chance to learn that not all teenage girls are the same.
When I got married, my dad handed over the status of being my rock to my husband. But he always ensured I knew he was there to provide that extra support if I ever needed it.
Sometime over the weekend my dad was rushed to the hospital.
My little brother, who lives with our father, sent me a message to call him.
I'm in great shape for the shape I'm not in.
My sister apparently has been with my father a lot during his hospital stay and the hospital transfers. But she did not feel the need to call me at all. Granted, my brother is there to fill me in, but when our father was taken from the community hospital to the one in the "city", she took over. Even my brother does not know what the full story is because he is not there.
My mother is attempting to maintain somewhat of a relationship with me. So, last night my mom called me. What gets me is that she said she was told to call me to give me more info.
First of all, why do they have to be told to call me?
Secondly, is there not any more info you can give?
I ask all of you out there in the world....
Remember to do what is right.
Remember that sometimes you have to put your own feelings aside and think of the person that is hurting. And no, I am not talking about me but of my father.
You need to remember that it isn't always about you.
If you are going to go and toot the "I am a good Christian" horn, then you best step up to that plate and portray the love of God the way He would want you to.
If my post offends you, you have two choices:
1. You can talk to me about it ... or ...
2. You can run away in the other direction and smile
