    Day 26 ponder question. What timing. Yes I had spoke with my dad about 4 days ago. Very tense conversation. He is upset with me because I won’t get the covid vaccine. I have concerns about it’s safety, but that’s a separate issue. Growing up my dad was not a happy person. Mainly during the work week. He has always had a quick temper and it’s gotten worse as he’s gotten older. Yells at other drivers, people in his way at the store just no patience for anyone, family included. He’s always right and doesn’t want your opinion. Has belittled my mother for as long as I can remember. I have feelings of guilt for not speaking up for her. I’ve been doing a lot of journaling about this as I feel it’s part of my own anger and fear issues. Yesterday in church service the pastor told the congregation they should call their fathers, you know for Father’s Day and all. I sent a text. Just didn’t want to get involved in a heated or tense conversation with him. Just wanted to enjoy the day with my own son. Anyway, amazing timing for day 26.
