Running into dad

Friday, November 15, 2013

Yesterday wasn't able to walk so that mean I couldn't stand up to make dinner so had hubby buy a cooked chicken at Sam's, they are cheap and wow do they taste good! He went there after picking up my son from school so they like to go try all the samples and look around.
Well if you have read my past blogs you know that I had to recently cut dad out of my life because of the disrespect, meanness and stress he was bringing into my life (very dysfunctional family) anyways we haven't seen or heard from him that day in the rehab place where I had enough. I said my good bye to him because I knew he'd never be man enough to apologize for everything he put me through and although I held out hope that he wouldn't remain spiteful and call me when the sox won the world series (baseball was our thing) he never did.
Obviously I never meant anything to him but being his emotional punching bag , anyways!
My hubby and son ran into him at Sam's and my hubby said hi how are you doing and my son said hi ( he supposedly adores my son) my dad just sat there with his mouth wide open and didn't acknowledge them at all and just watched as they both walked to the cashier.
I can't believe he didn't even talk to my son after all my son never did anything to him but then again neither did I.......... I felt bad for my son, I can't believe he's choosing to be spiteful till the end of his days.
The lack of stress that I feel because he's no longer in my life and my siblings is remarkable, I felt like I was carrying a elephant on my chest before and although I have some stress because of some other personal things it's nothing like when I had my dad disrespecting me in front of doctors / nurses/ social workers...
It makes me feel sad for him that he could go at any moment but he'd rather be mean and spiteful to me and my family.

    I wish things were better, but some people are just horrible. You are a great mother and can hopefully make up for your son having a mean grandfather. If he will not even acknowledge his own grandchild at a store, then he doesn't deserve to be in your life. I hope your son at least knows what is going on and knows he did nothing wrong.

    Unfortunately we can't force people we love to change! Maybe he was in shock that your hubby and son even spoke to him. That's all we can do sometimes, act as civil loving human beings and just let God work on the hearts of others. Hope you feel better and more mobile soon! emoticon emoticon
