I had a good 10-year run with my dad, and I will miss him. I hoped for a happy ending, especially since his health isn't too good. However, after years of trying to reconcile with him, I'm not so sure I'll even ever see him before he dies. However, I will always cherish the time we had.
About 10 years ago, I saw him again after years of not talking to him, and I'm glad I did. If I hadn't I wouldn't have known he's the reason I put pepper on my macaroni and cheese. I also wouldn't have had any idea that he's the reason I always wanted to become an entrepreneur and now have worked eight long years at my freelance writing business.
Even though I currently don't talk to my dad, I'm glad I had that time with him as well as my autistic sisters. Sometimes people can't reconcile, but I don't regret trying with that person.
Otherwise, how would I have ever really known if it's possible? Now it's time for me to just let go.
By the way...
I hope that someone will help him get to the hospital because he procrastinated having me do it. And I really tried. So, even though he hurt me many times and tried to control me all my life, I did the best I could. I really did.
