Today was a sad day for me. As I write this my dad is laying in a hospital bed with his brain bleeding. It happened this morning, and I live in another state, he's in Florida, and I am in Tennessee. Tomorrow I travel to say goodbye to him and make the decision to let him go, as I am the oldest of three son's.
Yesterday, I was writing that the hardest thing for me to do is to step out of my comfort zone and the supper affiliate challenge is helping me to do it.
Tomorrow the hardest thing I will have done is tell the doctor to turn off the machine that keeps my father here with me. Right now, as I write this, I am a stranger to you all, and I am sharing a very personal thing with you, so I guess you could say that I am changing. I would never have done this just months ago.
Here is something I want to share and its a regret that has hit home for me. If you have loved ones that are still with you. Call them up and say hi, do it often for you just never know when this is going to happen. My dad was only 800 miles away, and I did not take the time to talk to him on a regular basis. Now I'm going to walk into a room tomorrow and say goodbye and tell the doctor to let him go.
Right now that is my regret in life; tomorrow it may be something else I don't know. Say hello, say I love you and give a hug if you're able, you won't regret it.
I'll probably be taken a break from the supper affiliate challenge for a couple of weeks. I am sure I'll have a lot to catch up on when I get back, I'll be back though I'm not giving up. Thanks for all the help I appreciate it.
