Day 6.... under the wire!

What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

        This is a difficult one to answer... I was a wreck when my Dad got sick, he was always so strong and powerful, so seeing cancer chip away at the man I knew was the most difficult thing I ever did... When he died, there wasn't much of him left, he was basically comatose, yellow from liver failure, and wasn't living any quality of life... so His death was not as difficult as the dying part. Missing him is also a struggle daily... even after 9 years, Once a Daddy's Girl, Always a Daddy's Girl!

          My sister Lisa was 13 when she was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, and over the next 20 years her health disintegrated but it was shocking to my whole family when she passed away in her sleep at age 33. My relationship with her could have been much better and I always planned on working on it, but I ran out of time. So, my advice is to get in a better place, and live each day as if it was your last, or your loved one's last... Because, one day, it will be. 


  1. Very touching. I can't even imagine what it would be like to be a daddy's girl. You were very lucky
