I know that I rarely post, but I am an avid reader and I have always been touched by the gracious sharing of emotional strength that I see here. I don't have anyone else to lean on right now, so I came here to let it out.
My Father has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. I have had a strained and distant relationship with him my entire life, but we've been making strides to repair that this last few years. I have not gotten to see him in 20 years and with money being so tight, I am terrified that I won't ever have that chance now. I am not a religious woman, but I believe very strongly in the power of energy and prayers are a way to direct that energy. So, I ask that everyone please send their prayers to my Dad. I so desperately wish for his remaining time to be as peaceful as it can be and I hope to find a way to visit him before it's too late. Thank you.
