REALLY…I HAVE NOT ONLY FATHER’S DAY COMING UP BUT MY DADDY’S BIRTHDAY TOO AND THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE THING I COULD BUY FOR THIS MAN THAT HE WOULD NEED OR ENJOY AS HE ALREADY HAS A HAPPINESS FROM HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD THAT FEW WILL EVER ACHIEVE.  MY DADDY AND I HAVE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS LIVING TOGETHER BUT THAT ALL CHANGED AFTER CHURCH LAST SUNDAY AND EVEN HIS FERAL CAT CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN MY ATTITUDE AND WILL LET ME TOUCH AND PET IT AND IF A CAT CAN TELL I HAVE A DIFFERENT ATTITUDE – I WONDER WHAT HUMANS SEE?   THE ONLY THING MY DADDY WOULD GET JOY FROM S SEEING ME HAPPY SO FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND FATHER’S DAY THAT IS WHAT I AM GIVING MY DADDY- I WILL PUT THIS STUPID HACKING AND THE HORRIBLE ATTITUDE IT CAUSED ME TO BE IN ON A DAILY BASIS FOR YEARS BEHIND ME AND FROM THIS DAY FORWARD THERE WILL BE NO PROBLEMS WITH MY ATTITUDE FROM THE HACKING OR ANY OTHER SOURCE.  IF I GET UPSET-I WILL GO TAKE A DRIVE IN THE CAR HE GOT ME AND I WILL DO AS HE ASKS ME THE FIRST TIME WITHOUT ARGUING WITH HIM OR COPPING AN ATTITUDE.  I WILL SHOW MY DADDY THE RESPECT HE DESERVES AND BE A RESPECTFUL DAUGHTER.   TODAY DADDY ACTUALLY ASKED ME TO COVER THE OTHER WINDOW WITH MYLAR TO REDUCE COOLING COSTS AND THAT IS A GIANT STEP FORWARD RIGHT THERE! HE IS SEEING THAT SOME OF THE IDEAS I HAVE ARE GOOD INSTEAD OF REJECTING EVERYTHING BEFORE CONSIDERING THE PROS OR CONS OF THINGS.  WE ARE FINDING OUT THAT WE EAT AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND NOW INSTEAD OF BEING MAD AT ME BECAUSE IT IS TOO HOT FOR ME TO EAT OR I DO NOT LIKE WHAT HE COOKS-HE EITHER ASKS ME WHAT WE WANT FOR DINNER OR WILL COOK IT AND SET IT ASIDE SO I CAN HEAT IT UP LATER.  THESE ARE ALL POSITIVE THINGS I COULD NOT HAVE EVEN IMAGINED US FIGURING UOT LAST WEEK, HECK-HE EVEN LET ME COOK HIM CHICKEN FRIED STEAK ONE NIGHT AND ATE IT!!!  HE DID NOT LIKE THE MASHED POTATOES AND WHITE GRAVY BUT HE DID EAT ALL THE CHICKEN FRIED STEAK FINGERS I PUT ON HIS PLATE!  I GOT TO DRINK MILK WITH REAL ICE CUBES IN IT AND I HAVE NOT HAD THAT IN YEARS…SO MUCH GOOD STUFF IS HAPPENING IN MY LIFE LATELY THAT I AM KIND OF IN SHOCK.  I DID NOT REMEMBER WHAT BEING HAPPY WAS AND PEOPLE AT THE WALMART I HAVE GROWN TO LOVE GOING TO MOST EVERY DAY ARE THE ONES POINTING THIS OUT TO ME AS I SKIP AND WALTZ THROUGH THE STORE!  TWICE WOMEN HAVE SAID TO ME THAT I SOUND HAPPY AND THE FIRST TIME I HAD TO STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT AND THEN I REALIZED SHE WAS RIGHT-I AM HAPPY NOW!   CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING MISERABLE FOR SO LONG THAT YOU FORGOT WHAT BEING HAPPY WAS LIKE TO THE POINT THAT OTHER PEOPLE HAD TO POINT IT OUT TO YOU?  SO THIS ARTICLE IS MY COMBINATION BIRTHDAY AND FATHER’S DAY PRESENT TO MY DADDY WHO IS SHOWING ME WHAT FAMILY REALLY IS LIKE AND THE THINGS THEY ARE WILLING TO GO THROUGH FOR ONE OF THEIR OWN.  THIS IS SOMETHING NEW TO ME-FAMILY- AND I AM FINDING THAT IT REALLY IS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED JUST LAST WEEK!  SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND FATHER’S DAY, DADDY!  I LOVE YOU AND YOUR FERAL CAT BOTH AND AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU PUT UP WITH YOUR BI-POLAR DAUGHTER AND HER HORRIBLE ATTITUDES SHE HAS BEEN GOING THROUGH.  THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER EVERY SINGLE DAY AND WILL CONTINUE TO IMPROVE BECAUSE I WILL KEEP MY MIND RIGHT AS MY GIFT TO YOU!  I LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY AND I NOTICE THE LITTLE THINGS THAT YOU PUT UP WITH EVEN THOUGH I KNOW YOU DO NOT LIKE THEM.  I AM GETTING BETTER EVERY DAY, MENTALLY, AND EVEN A FRIGGIN FERAL CAT CAN TELL I HAVE HAD A CHANGE OF ATTITUDE!  I AM SURE WE WILL HAVE ONE HECK OF A GREAT LIFE TOGETHER FROM NOW ON AND IF THINGS GET ROUGH- WE CAN TALK THEM THROUGH INSTEAD OF ME COPPING AN ATTITUDE AND MAKING YOU FEEL BAD LIKE I WAS WHEN I FIRST GOT HERE. SO THIS IS NOT THERAPUTIC WRITING DONE BY KARIN WRAPE 6-10-17-THIS IS MY GIFT TO MY DADDY FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND FOR FATHER’S DAY!
