Thanks Grandpa!

Yesterday I talked about miracles and inaction. It reminds me of a story my late grandfather once told me: A very good man walked the earth, he took care of the sick and poor, giving to others more than he gave himself. Every night he would pray, “Dear God, I …

Why I love her…

I try my best not to get involved with drama, because I dislike drama. I want everyone to be cooperative, friendly and encouraging to others. Not that many people do that in this world.

She supports my vision.

This is why I love her.

Joanna lives in a town far away from her parents because I have a career here. She has sacrificed so I might flourish. She encourages me to be better every day and is the first one to tell me when I have failed & hug me afterwards.

This is why I love her.

Always learning from Dad

So my dad is always teaching, trying to impart knowledge and his experiences on me and my brothers & sisters. After yesterday’s Nebraska Football victory I could tell he had an extra jump in his step. “Today’s been a GREAT week. It started with UT losing (my brother in law …

Help…

Actions that were made because of greed and because a board member didn’t want to share the publicity of an event with a radio group saddened me when the event ended but it brought up a story my dad told me when we lived in New York.

He was chopping wood, doing what he called to my mother, “Life’s Work” , and I asked him why he chopped the wood rather than have somebody else do it for him.

The Karma wagon rolls on…

Now it’s hard when you have limited local friends and family members are 5 hours away. I didn’t think that it would be good for Shelby and Ryan to be living in my unpredictable life back when Angie left.

Now I could have gotten a court order to keep her in a nine country range, but I let her go. I did what I thought was best and karma would pay me back.

“Daddy, do you think you’d mind if I could come live with you after my cat dies? I know you are allergic to cats and I don’t want you to get sick,” Shelby told me last week.

I just looked at the phone and a tear fell, “When the time is right you will be here, Shelby.”

No Brainer….

After many sleepless nights miserable, unhappy and alone I found her. I had suffered for years, looking in the wrong place for love. At first, I looked and tried to push her away. And I went away to disaster after disaster, tragedy after another. But then one night our eyes …

An ongoing trip report…

My Dearest Joanna, The drive to Ft. Worth was easier since I talked to you a majority of the ride.¬† I finally fell asleep at 3:30 in the morning and I miss your smell and your touch. When I woke up this morning I was filled with excitement and dread. …
