My mom has been gone for over 15 years and dad now lives in a retirement center that is really nice.
I just got home from spending the day with him. Life is just busy and it's hard to take the time to go over to be with him...or so I think! He is so easy to be with and such a sweetheart. I ALWAYS have a wonderful time and I get the blessing.
Today I patched up his scooter with duck tape, grabbed his dirty clothes, shared a cup of coffee in the cafe, filled his meds and just sat and talked. I am his oldest and I think he just misses me sometime.When I left, he hugged me and said how much he likes my visits! He always thanks me for coming over and helping him.
As I was driving back home as the day was slipping away, the 4th commandment just kept playing in my head~HONOR THY FATHER AND THY MOTHER. Ah, yes Lord, I hear you! Love ya Papa!
