Change isn’t easy plus this was quite apparent to me after our father passed away, then he had been our rock plus always there when I needed him; as a kid, mom left plus the people I was with and I only had each other, but my dad never remarried though he dated a few times, and it never seemed love he got over our mom which was a little heart cutting to watch.
- After high school, I had to head off to university plus get admission for a university hundreds of miles away… Dad had insisted I go there to learn to be independent which I later found out was the best thing he did for me.
In our late 20s, he fell ill plus I had to transfer back to the cabin to take care of him. Dad’s death hit me hard plus it took time for me to adjust to being alone in the house. I recall a single afternoon when I woke up drenched in sweat because the AC unit had stopped working. I wasn’t sure when the AC idea had been maintained so I had to find an AC worker to take care of that. I got up, took a shower, got dressed plus went to call an AC company I’d been told about. I had heard nice things about this AC company a single time when I asked a friend for a recommendation… But being so busy, I forgot to call them to come plus repair the unit, then now time had passed plus it seemed the unit was failing due to neglect; however, the AC expert they sent did confirm that the AC unit was failing plus the best thing to do was install a new single component.
