Good night dad
I just realized that my father left earth on Easter Sunday 1967, 48 years ago, as the result of liver problems .
That's a really long time in a person's life. I really don't think about him very often. Perhaps that is because he did not have a strong personality and my mother was always in charge. Interestingly, my second husband, now on dialysis, was a lot like him. Maybe that's why we are no longer married. After 27 years I discovered I didn't need him in my life. Even though I have a strong personality it appears I am slow to catch on.
Thinking back I may have married him for the same reason my mother married for a second time. She was 3-4 months pregnant with me and thought she needed a husband in the picture. I don't believe she ever wanted to be a mother. I married my man in question because my two sons from a previous marriage needed a father- I thought.
In any case that part of my life is over. Perhaps I can now move on to greener pastures, finding a mate who does not rely on negative addictions, like alcohol.
So good night dad, you were an interesting role model.
This blog began as a means to share my life adventures with my readers. My writing experience to that point included two published books; Wake Up! and A Gathering of Spirit and four years as a columnist for the Cibola Beacon. I have since added Journey of an Enlightened Egotist and Spirits of Cibola County to my published work, both are available from Amazon.com
Looking for ways to inspire others to write I created a writing group for senior citizens in 2012, a writing camp for children 2012-2015 and a communication group for a nursing home in 2013.
A friend once told me to find my passion and share it and I would realize my purpose. She was right!
Every time I have thought my blog should end something happens to assure me that it does inspire others to be the best that they can be.
