    Perfect answer.  The fact that you are grateful and love her so much is a big reward for her.

    My dad.  After we resolved my hurt and anger from my childhood together, I was able to really see what an amazing, kind, generous, open-hearted person he became.   He was one of those kind souls who would help anyone in need anyway that he could.

    WOW that sounds exactly like me.  My dad was wonderful and I never realized it because we had a horrid relationship for years.  My dad would help anybody.

    Learning to let go of resentment and forgive was one of the hardest things I have had to do, but by far the most rewarding. I only wish he were still alive so I could have more time with him.

    You're fortunate that you were able to do that with him. I had the same kind of thing with my dad, and I feel lucky that I heard him say that he loved me the last time I saw him, five months before he died.

    I wasn't clear enough. I feel lucky that he said that the last time I saw him because I wasn't as fortunate as you because I had to work through my difficult relationship with him on my own, which included nine years of psychoanalysis.

    I am sorry you went through that.   You were indeed fortunate though, and I hope that both of those things helped you to find some kind of closure. This post was edited by lavender at November 18, 2018 8:33 PM MST

    I know how you feel Stu, believe me.  My mom who I was closer to than anyone treated me like I was her enemy the last year of her life and would call my idiot brother up who was living in Chicago, every day and tell him how evil I was to her.

    My MOM.  I cannot believe how badly our relationship disintegrated and I know it was because she was so sick.  On her deathbed she apologized for being so mean to me.  I told her how much I loved her and no one had a better mother than I did and she looked so happy and relieved.  I loved my mom and what hurt so much is that she stopped believing that for a while.  

    Glad you got some help and hopefully that is resolved.

    Yes, Stu, I know it is supposed to be WHOM, deal with it.   This post was edited by TIME for JUSTICE at November 18, 2018 8:33 PM MST

    Well the idea that you forgave was beneficial to him and most of all to you.
