Does it Ever Get Better?

Dad asked me that today. I didn’t know what to tell him.

I could see that he was tired, and frustrated, and really feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders just then. But, I didn’t know what to tell him.

I didn’t want to give him false reassurance. You learn that is a no-no in the first semester of Nursing School. And besides, I don’t want to presume to know the future. But, I didn’t know what to tell him.

I certainly hope, and even pray, that the answer to his question is “yes”. Not just for his sake, or the family’s sake, and certainly not for my sake, but for Lia’s sake. I hope it gets better, and soon.

But, I didn’t know what to tell him.
