I have to admit I was closer to my mom than my dad while I was growing up. My dad was always working to provide for me the things I wanted and those music lessons and talent shows I entered all the time. What for? I don't sing anymore and instead of the money he spent on things, I wish I had the time with him. Don't get me wrong, there were a lot of good times camping and vacationing that I wouldn't trade for the world. He was a stoic man and he loved me by working hard and setting a great Christian example of what a dad and a husband was supposed to be.
So, if anyone is reading this, please pray that God will gives all of us the strength and peace we need to get through this trial.
