I really thought that was what I was doing. I intended those words to be comforting and focused in a positive direction, as the recipient also has had a difficult relationship with a father figure and indicated she was fearful reconciliation wouldn’t happen soon enough. I wanted her to know that though my dad and I reconciled before he passed, I believe that even if we hadn’t, all of that would be forgiven now. On both our parts.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
