I did not learn until I was in my 40′s that My Dad threatened My Mom with a Coat Hanger. He wanted to abort one of my sisters. My Mom saved My Sister’s Life. Thanks Mom. You should have left Dad. He did not like me either. I was religious, and well he just had to take me down a peg or two. You should have left him, and then I wouldn’t have been born to have known the pain, I’ve been through. You should have had a clue, when you didn’t put out, while engaged to be married, and he cheated on you before you married, that that would be his signature pattern. I wish you had married a man who respected you. Then, maybe he would have respected his 5 daughters, too. You let him drive you and us to the edge, but I never jumped, because I know I have a Father in Heaven who loves me very much. I just wish you would have valued yourself more, and found a man who would value you and us girls. RIP Mom. RIP Dad. I hope you made it. If you did, it was only because I was praying for you. God bless you Dad. God bless you Grandpa. I forgive you all for not being saints or consistently good. There are millions of people with mixed emotions about Mother’s Day, but with me more so, Father’s Day. Seven times seventy, is the only profound thing I can think of right now. And, thanks Mom. Sis isn’t perfect, but I am glad you fought for her life, Mom. Thanks.
