Life is a precious gift that shouldn’t be taken for granted. My Dad was recently inspected with stage 4 cancer, and she doesn’t have genuinely long left. Although this was disappointing news, I am so thankful that I am able to spend her last days on this earth with her. I have been living with her for about more than two months now, and we have actually had some of the most attractive times these last few months. My Dad is entirely in nice spirits, and she lives each morning to its full potential. We both work genuinely hard to ensure that she is well taken care of. One of my greatest regrets that caused more issues than I could have ever imagined was not servicing the oil furnace in her house. I suppose that when my dad was alive, she had the oil furnace maintained every year, so I figured it could make it a year without being maintained, however unfortunately, I was mistaken. The oil furnace quit on a genuinely cold November night, and it caused so many issues. We didn’t realize that the oil furnace wasn’t on until the following morning, so the apartment was super cold. I called an HVAC professional, but she wasn’t able to come until the next morning. We froze through that morning and night. I felt so disappointing for my mom. When it was all said and done, I ended up having to spend money a whole lot more money than if I would have just had the oil furnace maintained. I suppose we all make ridiculous choices, and not servicing my mom’s oil furnace was 1 of my silliest.
