DH and I were talking about the whole mess with oldest stepdaughter. And these words came out of my mouth, "You don't turn your back on family". Which got me thinking, isn't that essentially what I am doing with my father? I am turning my back on him by expecting things out of him that he obviously cannot do.
So, do I pick up the phone, let him know I am disappointed, but won't turn my back on him, or do I continue along as I had intended a few days ago by sending a letter that all communication is up to him?
Now I have even more to think about in this whole messy situation. GRRRRRR.
