Happy Birthday Dad

He would have been 97 today.  Thinking about his age helps me to not feel bad that he is gone.  He would not have wanted to be around at 97 considering where his eye sight was going at 84 when he actually passed away….but even though it has been 13 years – nearly 14 years, I’ve had some tearful moments…they pass… the pain never quite goes away…as time goes by it does get easier to go deeper to remember him.

If you read my blog a couple of days ago about @Hobby Lobby, know that I have rethought my shopping there.  I don’t disagree with anything I said in my blog but according to conversations and comments, apparently I did not look deep enough into what lots of people were finding offending about the management of the company…their healthcare for women…and now, I wonder if I need to stop spending my money and supporting the disfunction.  Its going to be hard and it really pisses me off that I may have to make this decision.  I continue to justify why I’m still going to shop at @Hobby Lobby the way I justify continuing to buy my home products from Melaleuca the anti gay company…I feel I need  to stand behind my convictions.  So until I figure this out…..please ignore me if you see me there…I’ll be the one wearing the disguise I bought at Michaels!

Until next time…

  1. I’m glad you are able to pull the memories of your Dad to the surface to enjoy.
    I hope that as the Healthcare marketplace gets on it’s feet and the storms have settled down, people who are getting healthcare from their employer but who still have to pay a portion, will look at the healthcare options that are out there and maybe they won’t have to be dependent on their employer making that kind of decision for them.
