Serious and Hard Conversation

source

His daughter loved dandelions. He loved his daughter.

Today my broth finally said it all out loud. It was hard to hear and although I tried to be strong, I was not.

The hear him say “I am dieing and I am worried about what will happen to you. What’s going to happen to you?

Through a veil of tears I answered as honestly as I knew how. I have no idea. I know that I will go through some deep sadness. I assume we will need to sell this home and move somewhere else for both emotional and financial reasons. I don’t know where I will be or what I will do. I don’t know how I will handle the grief.  I wish I could plan for it and yet I can’t do that. I have thought about it a lot and it always turns out the same, I am simply devistated and lost.

I dont’ want the time we have left worrying about will happen when you get to go see your wife, your daughter, Mom, Grandma, and Grandad. I want my time left with you to be happy and as painfree as we can make it. for you.

Maybe the key is let go of things I can’t control.

It’s a rough day.

What do you think?

  1. I wish you to find the strength to move forward.
    Life goes on and we’re forced to accept and adapt to change. It hurts, but there’s light at the end of the journey, waiting for you, if you believe so.
    I know you’re a strong person, for you have the courage to show and share your weaknesses. And you also spread a lot of positivity, may these good vibes reflect and come back to you. 😉

  2. First (sorry) I clicked twice and it downvoted your post. I am so sorry that was unintentional.

    I cannot imagine what you are going through. i wish there was magic in this world that would take that pain away.

    I am so sorry.
