Honestly, I pause concerning this.
My family and I have gotten through the stormy 2014 this year.
Dad was able to refund the loan that I gave him. I forgave the loan. However, I was sinking more into debt so he repaid it.
Mom had two hip replacement surgeries this year which was five (5) months apart. She’s doing great. I’m very thankful that she’s doing so well.
Dad is getting better. He totally lost it, taking care of his mom, helping his two disabled sons and not telling anyone that he needed assistance. He was used to taking care of everything. Mom and I had to support him as he worked on getting his finances together.
Me, it was a caustic year. Many lessons were learned but I’m thankful. I just need time to reflect on our family and where we fell short. I also have to protect myself. I fully gave him financial support but it cost me dearly. Since I don’t have siblings that can support me nor a personal family, I have to protect myself. Even to my family, I will need to say, “no.”
I’m thankful to keep my home and not declare bankruptcy. It will take me a very long time to come back though. If you believe in prayer, I would appreciate them for me and my family. My disabled brothers are well so I’m thankful for that.
I have a lot to be thankful for. I hope that you feel the same.
