The relationship with my father was more than strained, for many years. I came from a dysfunctional family that is over 5 miles long. I hated my father for years. I don't want to get into the specifics as to why. Let's just say, "The stress of seeing my mom beaten on on a regular basis, caused me to have dark circles under my eyes before I reached puberty". Although I was never beat on by dad, I still had a resentment towards my father that branched further than anger. 

However, I found out in 2007 (I think) that dad's heart was in pretty bad shape, and his doctor was talking about putting a stent in it. I didn't see my father for a couple years after I heard about his heart. The man was running away from something so, it was never a necessity for me to know his every move. At this point in my life, it was a great relief for dad to leave the city of Houston or the entire state of Texas. 

February 7, will be 2 years since he passed, and due to my husband passing 2 months and 2 days after dad, the grief of dad is just now catching up with me.

RIP: Royce Allen (Al) Watson

You are dearly missed

I lost my dad on June 17. He was my biggest supporter, and we were extremely close. I feel lost without him.

I am so sorry Mary Kay. Our hearts were broken when we lost our dad. My sister-in-law had told us to prepare that tears and grief would come in waves...out of nowhere. One of my cousins had lost her dad before us and she spoke some wise words to us: (please forgive the bad word.) "Dear, dear Cousins,
 
It's gonna hurt like a sonofabitch for awhile. Then one day will come when you notice you haven't thought about it for an hour or so. And then the times between will get longer. And then something, you never know what, will grab at your heart and it will hurt just like it did at first. Those of us who have already lost their dads wish we could take some of the pain away. But as I told my boys when their daddy died - the saddest thing would be that if nobody cared, nobody cried. God is good and faithful and will get you through."

Another dear friend said there will come a day when we will be able to share memories of him without crying...I was clinging for that day.

Praying for you.

Some quotes

Today is the first day of the rest of your life - UnknownThis was something my mom used to have hanging in our living room, and since Jeremy passed away, it's something that is very close to my heart. Why? I'm still trying to sort through my heart and soul for the answer. There are so many quotes I never paid attention to when I still had my husband and our life together. However, since the day he died, a lot of those quotes have made their way into the essence of my being. Here are a few of…See More

Jeremy's accident

I've decided that I'm going to write my blog/journal entry in my Google Drive app, and then post it here because quite frankly, there's nothing like being in the middle of a sentence, deep in thought, and having your phone lose your spot because your hand caused the phone screen to rotate accidentally. Today is gonna be another one full of tears. I'm going to take a guess here, and say, "It's probably going to be a natural thing for me to start crying (off and on) around Thanksgiving and not…See More

Complicated

I am struggling with my grief and I really feel like I don't have anyone to talk to or anyone who can understand what I am feeling.  My relationship was an extremely complicated one in which I am married and he was not.  However, as our relationship was beginning he got a young girl pregnant and she lived with him.  He was committed to making sure his child was well cared for and that included taking care of the mother of his child.  He became such an important part of my life and the crazy…See More
