Yes, he finally did. After 4 months of waiting, he finally did. For those of you all that knows the story, he stole this money from me. He was supposed to be getting appliances for me, but instead he took the money and used it for his own means. When I went to ask the guy whom was selling me the appliances, about my money, he told me that my father never gave him any money. He knew that my father was supposed to be getting appliances for me. He wanted $350.00 for it. I could not afford that amount. Well, my father paid me back $20.00 cash in January. And three to four weeks later, he paid me $70.00. I have that now in a money order. I was very mad when he stole from me, and tried to lie about it. I hated to let something so trifling like that destroy our relationship. So, I would just visit him and we would end up talking, so I guess that is how we made up. I could have never hated my father, I just despised when he stole from me. Well now that it is over with, all is forgiven.

Hello crem97! All I can say is that you're a good person. I agree with you that inspite of what your father did, you forgave him and that's what makes you good. Others may forget this but our parents are still our parents no matter what. They may do something bad to us, but we have to think for all those sacfrices that they had when we were still a baby. I am happy to know that everything between you and your father was fixed already.

Yes, I am too! I just wished that my other situation had the same mercy on me. It is very sad to know that others can be very unforgiven.. It is a pitiful change. Money is never that important. When the Indians die, they will not be taking the $200.00 with them in their grave. They will not be able to use and enjoy the money..

Hi cream97, Oh, I am so pleased that you got your money back and you made up with your father, he knows he done wrong, some time parents can go wrong and it is only right that we should forgive and forget as we have only one parents and we should make the most of them as really its just money, I know it doesent make it ok but we have to have hearts and I think you have. Hugs. Tamara

Thank you! I am glad to have a heart, it makes me feel of God when I do this! I won't let others walk all over me.. But, I will not be mean and try to hurt them anymore than they hurt me. That would be wrong of me. I try to do unto others as I would have them due unto me.

Yes, I am very glad that I got my money back. I have always loved my father. I just disliked what he did to me. I was very disappointed in him. But still I loved him.. After time passed, I started to miss him, but the thought of what he did to me haunted my memory. I hope he will never ever try to pull that on someone else, or he may live to regret it!

I remember you talking about this incident and I'm so glad he finally paid you back!! That is really wonderful news!! Your father does have a conscience afterall or he wouldn't have paid you back. I agree with you, you can't hate your father but you sure can hate his ways. I love my parents to no end but I certainly hate some of their ways. Now you know what your father is about, I pray that you never ever give him any more money in the future because you know now how irresponsible he is.

Yes, he has an conscience! When he stole from me I thought that he did not have one during that time, to do what he did. But, I am glad that he fessed up and gave me back which was mines. I do not plan to lend him any more money in the future. That is for sure. I just played it off and acted like, he did not stole from me. I figured me getting along with him will help to ease the tension. He already felt guilty from stealing from me and to help ease it, I was willing to be cool with him. I wished that he never have done this to me. In his eyes, I was considered to be a daughter that was respectable towards him. So, I guess after he cooled off he realized that he should have never tried to play me like that! But never again will I be so generous.

When it is your parents you are duty bound to forgive them it all really depends on if that money was to pay your gas bill to keep your kids warm and he had stolen it.It depends on you and what is important to me,I have made it plain to my Dad if you need money ask for it do not go without,I hate to think how hard up he would be before his pride made him ask me,but we did get to buy him good shoes and a warm coat for christmas bless him,but if ever he stole money from me or anything he is just not the type and something would be seriosly wrong with him.
