…at least for me.
As I sit here, in the woods in the town of Wellfleet, making sure a generator keeps running to power part of our cable system, it got me thinking and reflecting on the past year of my life, both in the “real” world and in the internet world.
In the “real” world life was somewhat of a whirlwind. It seems this year was busier than usual. I guess with three children that is somewhat normal, so I expected nothing less. There are (were) times when I am (was) down on myself, and think I could be a better father. Sometimes, to often, I get frustrated and have a hard time coping. I know it is selfish to think these little people should behave the way I want them to. It is humbling for me to come to that realization, and I know it is something I need to work on. Not only for the sake of my children, but for the sanity of our household.
My wife Leah and I hit our 7th year mark as a married couple, although we’ve been together for 11 years. Time definitely does test a relationship, but with love, and the resolve to make it work, our relationship seems to grow stronger when ever there is a bump or scrape. I love my wife with everything that I have, and am working on being a better husband. We all have our inadequacies, I know and realize that, but I refuse to just accept them as they are. I made a vow to be with her through it all, and to assist her in any way possible. That resolve grows stronger by the moment, and I am happy to be able to share this life with such an amazing woman. Where my inadequacies come up short, she is always there to pick up the pieces and work it out. Without her I do not know where I’d be, and I am so grateful to have her in my life. I love her with all of my heart, and always will.
