That is the question rattling around in my head right now. I’m being absolutely serious when I say that what is happening in my life right now defies anything I could’ve ever hoped and/or dreamed for. Lucky doesn’t even cover it, in fact, for a writer, I am facing one of those moments when I have no words.
To do what I love for a living would be enough. Then, as many of you know, I was reunited with my daughter Ronni a few years back. She even came to live with me for a year and just recently moved into her own place with a great young man that hits all the checkmarks on a dad’s “List of rules for dating my daughter”. That also would be enough. It was more than I ever expected or hoped for, and it is something that I cherish.
What many of you may not know is that I have two sons. Cody and Alex. I thought that it was very likely that I would never see or hear from them again. The reasons are not for this post, but due to the relationship between their mother and I, it just did not seem likely that luck would grant me the opportunity to speak with my boys ever again.
Some of you know that my publishing label, May December Publications is based on the birth months of my three children. Sure, there were others out there who like to make it into something nefarious to suit their anti-Todd agenda, but since I know the truth, those sorts were long ago deemed inconsequential as well as being clinically moronic…but I digress.
Yesterday, I spent several hours messaging back and forth with my son Cody. Today, the hope is that I will be visiting via Skype with him and Alex. Alex is the one who may take a while to be okay with the situation, but I am set to do this at his pace and on his time.
Wish me luck.
