I'll be saying more about this later, I know; ...


...however, at Christmas, it seems more important than ever.

I was touched today, beyond belief, when my Father handed me a Christmas Card, and within it expressed his love & pride in me.

A small moment, with huge returns..

As a blogger friend of mine says, at times,

"Life is good. It's very good."

Love to all, this Holiday Season.

The thing is: My father, because of a lot of anger & memory-loss, has been hell to live with during this past year...

..His card just blew me away, because underneath all of his anger and regrets and losses..

..It made my day, and I want desperately to hold on to that feeling...

Time is of the essence.

Sinfully:
I am sorry that you have had such a stressful year. My relationship with my parents especially my Mom has had many ups and downs, in my early years until I was in my mid 30's; it was mostly down, with me spending as little time with them as possible, visiting them only on major holidays etc. But over the years, things because of some major traumas in our family things have healed little by little and now there are far less ups and downs and mostly more peaceful middle grounds. My folks are in their 80's now and live across the country from me. But we talk,instant message and e-mail and I try to visit when I can. In my "Saner" moments I try to remember that the truth about who they are; are the loving memories and moments that I have with them, and the bad ones (memories)kinda just blur away in the distance. Some days are easier to do this than other days.
Thanks for listening to me ramble on, your comments and support are always welcome Sinfully.
Take care,
