Honestly, that is how I feel. I wake up some days and actually think, “I’m the luckiest man in the world.” For one, I get to do what I love for a freaking living. Thanks to you continuing to buy my books, this is my full-time job. When asked what I do for a living, I get to say, “I’m a writer.” Talk about totally groovy.
Then there is the whole thing about my daughter moving home. Sure, most parents would cringe at the thought of their children moving back home, but not me. I missed out on most of my daughter’s life…now she is here. Even better–she is doing well and getting her head right. She is putting her life in order and actually being allowed to live a happy, drug and alcohol free life. She is surrounded by people who are not into that scene and so there is less temptation to fall off the wagon. Plus, bonus, she is my workout and run training partner!
I am getting ready to celebrate my 14th wedding anniversary! Coming from a guy who never made it past the third in THREE prior attempts, that is a milestone worth celebrating! Is our marriage perfect? Heck no. We argue just like any other couple. However…we resolve those arguments and move forward. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage. Sure, lots of people want you to think otherwise; of course that leads to you thinking your own marriage is horrible any time some little dust-up takes place. The reality is that nothing is perfect. The key is getting over the bumps. That is what I have.
So, can you see why wake up feeling like the luckiest man in the world? How about you? How are things going? Maybe it has been awhile since somebody asked. Well, I’m asking. How are you doing? How is life treating you?
