It will be 2013 in a few minutes but before I end this year I wanted to make a quick promise to myself. Although I plan on getting healthy in 2013 and making some great strides to become FAB in ’13 the thing I need to work on the most is my relationship with my dad.
I suck at picking up the phone to call him and he is alone. Well he isn’t totally alone, he has his bird, but there is only so much Tyger can do for my dad.
For those of you who don’t know the story, we recently “found” each other after losing contact for almost 20 years. Although I think about him a lot I don’t always pick up the phone and call him to tell him. I have him programmed into my HTC 8X that I’m reviewing for Verizon, but I rarely tap his tile. Maybe it is because he lives in California and I’m in Florida? Maybe it’s because there are over 30 years of things that were never said and it’s hard to fill that gap? Regardless, I have a lot of guilt over my lack of communication. In 2013 I will call my dad every week. I’m putting it on my weekly To Do list.
