When I was seven I watched as my father stomped my mother into the floor, breaking several ribs and puncturing her lungs, putting her into the hospital for several weeks because she refused to have an abortion. He nearly killed the baby, my baby brother, but did not succeed. It took me years and I'm still working on getting over that one, but this week I learned that he actually forced her to have an abortion before she became pregnant with him. He's 82 years old now and I would never confront him at this age with the things that he did to torture our family in the past. I'm trying hard to love him, and I do love him, but things like this keep popping up. He also told us at Christmas, with my mom present, that he has another child living in another state that was concieved around the same time as my brother. How do I deal with the past slapping me in the face like this, keep my sanity, and still be able to love this man?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
