Say What Needs To Be Said. Do What Needs To Be Done.
There is no second chance, no do-over. On the first day of this year I pulled an illegal U-turn and went back to visit my father, in the nursing home. Somehow I knew I needed to, I knew I was running out of time.
My father is dying. I know this. I abandoned my life, moved here, to be with him, to assist in his care. They think I have two more years as the disease progresses, stealing his abilities, his independence. I do not. Our time is up. Very suddenly after all that waiting, he is gone. My teacher, my sounding board, my supporter, my father. That title has so much meaning. Father. My father is gone.
Did he know how much I loved him? That I would have done anything in my power to make his life better? My grandfather walked down the street and never came back, was struck, died instantly. I did not feel that I had said all that I wanted to, to him. It was a hard lesson. It has taken my lifetime to learn it well. This book contains a few of those hard lessons, I hope they help you Say What Needs To Be Said.
