    I was just on Facebook and one of my sisters posted about how much she misses our mom; passed away in 1993. I don't know why but reading her post made me start to miss my Dad worse than ever. He's alive and well and living near that sistser in Florida.

    I miss him so much right now. I wish I could live closer to him and see him more than every couple of years, but I can't. My home is here in Arkansas with my husband. Because this farm has always been in my husband's family and he intends to pass it down to his children some day we could never relocate to Florida.

    I'm just so conflicted right now. He's my dad and my siblings stepfather. I feel like I should be the one down there taking care of him. He took a bad fall recently and all I could do was call to check on him afterwards. I tried to call him today just to tell him I miss him, but he's not home.

    I'm just very sad and could use a cyber hug. [​IMG]

    keep calling, you'll probably feel better after you hear his voice!

    A prayer on it's way too

    Is it possible for him and you to use Skype or some kind of "face-to-face" chat? That wouldn't be the same thing but it could help if you can see each other. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm so sorry, Gritty. I was really hoping that he would agree to move back to AR with you this time. I know you miss him terribly. [​IMG]
