The Father I Miss

This is in response to One Woman’s Quest challenge.

My Mom and Dad’s 64th wedding anniversary was this past week.  My Dad has been gone for almost two years now.  I miss him each and every day.  This week, his words “You know divorce is not the way to go. You take the bad with the good.”  rang in my mind.  I’ve been divorced for close to 14 years now.  The day my Dad helped me load my things into a pickup and unload them into a storage room was a day my Dad and I didn’t agree.  Of course, he didn’t know the whole story and reasoning behind my decision and as I unloaded, he quieted down and asked, “What else do we need to go back and get?”54222313_10218426360989399_4721875624904359936_n

  1. A sweet story. A Dad who had basic principles and yet put support for his daughter over them when the time came.

  3. When I was first married, my mom told me I’d made my bed, so I could lie in it. After several years of putting up with abuse, both parents were more than welcome for me to make the decision to get a divorce. I hated to do it. Divorce is not an easy think, but when family members are supprtive.
