I sent an email off to my Dad today to share some crushing sad news that makes me just want to throw in the towel, cry uncle, and say, I’ve had enough. His response:
Well I guess that just made a gloomy day worse.
I am so sorry.
I know that doesn’t do much to help your feelings.
Now, I’m even more upset that this bad news had to ruin my Dad’s day. Maybe, I shouldn’t have told him. Yet, with only one parent left, it means the world to me to matter so much to this one person. And, oh Dad. You’re wrong about this not doing much to help my feelings.
