Six years ago today my life changed forever. My husband and I had been fighting a rare disease called Amyloidosis that had been attacking his body for the past 3 months. We were on a journey to healing, just not the kind of healing we were hoping for. On June 27th, 2012 at 8:51 pm he took his last breath here on earth and immediately joined his Heavenly Father where he instantly was pain free. For me that was the beginning of the most painful time in my life. I still miss him so much, every day. But God has been faithful to see me through and continues to take care of me every day. I know what it feels like to want to take your last breath. I know when the pain seems like it will never end. I know the anger when life isn’t fair. I know how it feels to never want to wake up yet too scared to fall asleep. I say all this for you to believe me when I say, it will get better. Maybe not the same, but the pain will subside.
What Do I Do When One of My Parents Doesn’t Want Me to Love the Other?
by Wayne StocksIf you ever wonder if it’s ok to love both of your parents after a divorce or separation, the answer to this question is simple:
You absolutely have the right to love both of your parents no matter what happened in their relationship with one another.
Sometimes the fact that you love one parent might make things uncomfortable for the other parent, and other times you might feel like the fact that you love your Dad makes your Mom mad or vice-versa. Unfortunately, you might be right. Especially when parents have gotten a divorce, one or both parents may harbor resentment and anger towards the other parent. They might even try to influence you to feel the same way they do about your other parent. What they are doing isn’t fair to you, but it is likely the result of the frustration and stress that they are feeling. Unfortunately, parents are human beings too, and even parents make mistakes.
