Life can be such a roller coaster… live it one day at a time :)

Hello everyone! I know that I haven’t posted in quite a while but I have my reasons for that. I mentioned before that my dad was diagnosed with cancer last year and that he was doing pretty good until a few weeks ago. The chemo he was doing stopped doing its job so they upgraded to a stronger one and it seemed to have taken a toll on my dad’s health. My dad had to be rushed to the emergency yesterday because he had become so weak due to not eating correctly and not being able to sleep πŸ™ He’s stable right now but it’s definitely a roller coaster. The hard thing for me is that my family is in France and I’m right here in Dallas.

My dad and I had a very rough relationship when I was growing up due to his drinking. I’ll skip the details but any bad things you can think of when it comes to alcoholism happened. Anyway, 10 years ago, my dad and I started to get really close for the first time ever and as time went by, I forgave him for everything he did and he forgave me for that “one thing” that I did to him. I won’t talk about “that” thing on here, it will be between me and my God when I pass. Anyway, our relationship grew more and more and I can say that I absolutely love my dad and I know how much he loves me. All these years wasted when we could have had a solid relationship from the beginning, but it’s life, it happened and I’m glad we made amends 10 years ago so that at least, we didn’t waste another 10 years. I’m grateful for that.

So there it is, dealing with this from far away. My brothers are going back home this weekend to take care of my mom and other things, I’m grateful for that as well but I feel so powerless and quite frankly, I feel so very lonely, very lonely. I’ve been taking care of the hundreds of plants that I have to keep me somewhat busy. They are all blooming this year and I’m so happy about that. Some of them actually look really pretty and now, when I go to the backyard and see all these colors, it makes me happy for a minute πŸ™‚

My plants are called Adenium or Desert Rose. Y’all have a great week end 😍πŸ₯°

    Hi Steve. Healing thoughts your way. It’s great that you are surrounded but growing, healthy plants. Nurture them because they will be great therapy.
