Sometimes I try not to remember how my father died. Sometimes, however, I hear his voice that still asks me how I am. My father always asked me how I was. 
My mother never asked me, on the contrary she told me that I should have died and not my father. Sometimes I try to forget certain bad words from my mother. 
I light a candle, light incense, pretend he's home and wait to celebrate something with me. I miss him very much. 
My mother was always there to draw fashion sketches, perhaps for this reason I don't like fashion. My father had a passion for watches in his spare time.
He liked to fix broken mechanisms, stood with the magnifying glass and tried to fix them. It was good to see those miracles and after all they were ticking again.
It was magic and I was a child and I looked at him as if he were a magician.

    I lost my father at the age of 7 to lung cancer. I have a son of my own now that does hurt that they’ll never know each other

    A girl’s relationship with her daddy is so special. I miss my father, too. 💔

    I am sorry your mother is angry with you for surviving. If she has faith in a higher power please remind her that her God made the choice of survival, not you.

    Sorry for what you are experiencing right now, everything happens in God’s will. I know your mother hurt you 💔 but just love her from a distance. She’ll one day know that she was wrong.
    Hope that you’ll find some healing though this.
