I have always been self-sufficient, the master of my own destiny, but this year is really testing me. This year is testing a couple of my sons as well, you never stop being a father, I just wish I could fix everything with a bandaid and a hug like I did when they were little.
All of my boys are strong, stronger than they sometimes give themselves credit for so I am sure everything will work out in the long run for them all. You just have to hang in there guys, all things come to those who wait.
They say that one door shuts and another one opens, but every now and then you come across one that is well and truly stuck and you just have to keep pulling. Right now I can’t even get through the doggy door.
I don’t feel sorry for myself and I don’t want anyone else to either, just keep sending out some positive vibes and I will send more back in return. I keep telling Brian I can feel the big one coming and I can. 2012 will be a year to celebrate, the first year of the rest of my life.
