Earlier in the week my mom suggested that I text my dad to wish him a Happy Father's Day. She even suggested what to say, "Dad, even with all of our differences, I wanted to wish you a Happy Father's Day." I said no. I would not send someone a text that did not text me on my birthday for the last couple years, or on Christmas, or any holiday. He's very much like your father. The last time I saw my dad, he was in the garage when I dropped my mom off. I waved and he did not acknowledge me and went in the house.

Though, I never sent the text, I thought about it all day. It haunted me until the sun set on Sunday and night came and I could breathe a little that the day was over and I made it. I hate that this is inside you that you had to write it but I appreciate that you did.
