Today is my Dad’s last day at his job. About six weeks ago, instead of getting the pay raise and bonus that he more than rightfully deserved…he was informed that he would be laid off. It sucks. Mostly because my folks live about 5mins away and they’ve decided with my sister moving out and this lay-off looming that they will sell their house. They will go wherever my Dad finds work. I am close to both my parents and so are my children. My Mom & Dad are very involved with their grandkids.
Situations like this really make me question life in general.
My Dad is good guy and a hard worker. There were other people who could have been let go and wouldn’t have been missed at all. But my Dad has always been a good leader, he has integrity and has been respected for that.
Even now, while I curse such a thing happening to him, he reassures that there is a reason for this and has faith that better things await him. His example really touches me. I know he’s where I’ve gotten my strength from.
I’ll be forever grateful for that.
Love you, Daddy.
