There are somethings in this life that we can't plan for. I do not like or appreciate it when I cannot control my reactions and emotions when I'm caught off guard. I would have handled things a lot better many times if I would have taken the time to step back, pause and look at things from a different perspective but I'm not always that wise.
I have learned, however, that if I do the best I can with as much love and patience as I can muster that is all I can expect from myself. I know that God has gotten me through where I could not have made it. I also have a husband that is an awesome man who extends grace to me and holds me up. I'm not perfect and don't expect myself to be. I make mistakes but I'm also smart and caring.
Your momma knows you are a smart and caring man who will do his loving best and that is all you need to do. Your best isn't meant to please everyone for everyone's meaning of perfection for them or others is always different. Do what you know is right and don't worry.
God bless you sweetie. Be blessed. Extend grace when you can and know that Sar and I are praying for you.

The Cast

  • Wife
    Formerly GF. Self-explanatory, I think.
  • S & B
    Our former next-door neighbors. Their given names begin with neither S nor B, although the names that everyone calls them do begin with S and B. Go figure.
  • Wee One
    Wife's daughter, who is almost eighteen years old. An artist and aspiring actress who spends an inordinate amount of time getting physical therapy. She'll be starting college in the fall. We'll be in debtor's prison by the spring.
  • Daughter
    My 25-year-old daughter, a college graduate from SUNY New Paltz and working in the world of theater, making props. Currently her work can be seen on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Durham, with the Playmakers.
