My dad would have been 66 this week. He never got to see any of his children get married or meet his grandchildren. Life is a cruel mistress. I know he rests easier than he did on Earth but it doesn't take away the hole I have in my heart. Love you dad xx
What I did not know at the time or could have even understood at that age was that my mom had caught my dad in an affair with one of her best friends. Children, if left to process without guidance, do not have the capacity to manage chaos. If no one tells them otherwise, they will conclude it is their fault.
