Father’s Day


Do you know what it’s like to have your father tell you he’s finally getting the son he always wanted? Watching your step sister climb in your father’s lap and hang all over him like he’s her boyfriend? Do you know what it’s like to have to beg your father not to stop paying your mother alimony? What about listening to him as he sings the praises of his new step daughter’s successes over and over? And to listen and feign a smile as all your step family gushes about his generosity and what a sweet man he was? Can you imagine seeing posts over and over from your step sister about “her dad” and how much she misses him? What about getting the letter from his attorney after his death asking you to sign a waiver that you won’t contest….having never read the will? And requesting the will only to find your name (and your siblings as well) are no where mentioned in it?

Well, it’s kind of like a kick in the gut.
