My Husband's Childhood Home

This is the last picture I took of Dad with my husband and  kids at his house.  He no longer lives at his house because   he was getting to the point where we can no longer trust him living alone.  It makes me sad to see  Dad  go downhill that way.  He  is such a great father-in-law and I miss that about him.  I am not sure what condition he has but he can't remember who we are anymore.  He think and act like a child most of the times.
 My husband suggested to his  sublings that they should put him in a home but  my SIL did not like the idea.  So now that Dad can no longer live alone, she is taking care of him now at her house.  I commend my sister-in-law for doing because I would have done the same thing if he is my Dad.  In fact, I  wanted to do it  but  they did not let me.  .
We feel so sad on Fridays when we take our kids to piano lessons in Marland Heights.  We used to visit him at his house on that day but now, we no longer  go to his house because  it makes my husband really sad to see his childhood  home where he grew up, filled with emptiness.  I am not sure what they are going to do with the house but I think my niece in law will be living there now that Dad is living with my SIL.  


  1. Letting go is definitely difficult, mentally and emotionally. I can understand why your hubby is feeling that way. I hope things go well for your father in law. May God bless your family.

  2. o my ,thats a very difficult situation to go through....

  3. So sad! I hope that your FIL is doing okay now at your SIL's house.


It's always a pleasure to read what you have to say! Thank you!
