|Cottonwoods - Along the River|
All I can hope is that it was enough to express to him all he has meant to me. I've always felt so lucky to have both my parents in my life. Seems that I planned that to be the case forever. Sometimes forever isn't as long as you hope.
Driven away from the drama, I used the same escape I have since childhood. Started walking to find private space. In the middle of Winter, in a small town on the Great Plains - it can be a cold walk & was in more ways than one. But I did find natures beauty - I wasn't let down there.
Being the oldest & always close to my Dad - I expected to help, but have been shut-out.
A word to the wise, no matter how much you think you can trust someone - even family - be sure that you Never sign a power-of-attorney that names only one person! Also check to see if other documents have already been filed that you know nothing about - such as a living will, etc. I feel like I've done what I can & my father seems content with that~
