  • Always having reconciliation in the back of my therapist - mind, I asked Sandra, if she had told her Dad that her mother - his ex - wife - was deadly sick.

    " Oh, no, she exclaimed with a face in shock," My brother, sisters and I have immediately decided to not give him that satisfaction. Whenever a problem hits us like my brotherĀ“s illness, and we sometimes overcome our pride and go and ask him for some little help with money, he just grins at us and says he always knew we would never make it in life! Eventually someone will tell him about my mother, this is a small town after all. You can be sure: the moment he gets to know about my mother being on her deathbed or dead, my Dad will throw a huge fiesta!"
