J & T I just wanted to take a little time and let the world( sort of) know how much I love you two. It;s been a wild ride for the three of us. Raising
you two alone was a thank less job. As I used to think. But now that your grown up( sort of) 25 & 27. I look back and see it all in a different
I know how hard it was for you daughter being that girl in school who did'nt have a mom. You did, but she was as you know, now where to be found. You
found a way to get through all that. You are as thick skinned as I have ever seen. You were also wild as a honey badger!!! Still are in alot of
ways, sorry for that St.Patty's day Birthday of yours, take that up with your mom.
You ran off to Toronto at 18. I was scared to death for you. I knew I would never see you again. Now all that looks like anchient history. I still
worry about you, I'm your dad, I allways will. Just not as much, and I want wear it on my sleeve. I promise.
My son, where to start with you. I can relate to you more than your sister. Your a man, I'm a man. It's a man thing. But your still my little boy,
allways will be no matter how old you get. I know how school was for you. It was a horror. ADD/HD ritalin, I wished we didnt have had to go that
route, but we did. Asthma, the breathing treatments at school. Son, I know how hard that was for you. I know the stigma it gave you while you were in
school. I'm proud of the way YOU handled it. You handled it better than me.
I know how hard it was for the two of you dealing with your birth mom all these years. I hope I handled that one correctly. I am proud of the two of
you for being able to overcome those times and form a relationship with her now. It show's me the type of humans I raised..
My son, thanks for introducing me to your now step-mom& my three step-sons. When you were 14 & wanted me to meet your new friend Eric's mom . I've
been here ever since.. I know it sounds corny, but she and I knew as soon as we meet. Thank you son.
WE as Three, went through alot growing up. It was'nt easy on my end being both mom & dad. At times I failed miserably. Then at times the success's
were to numerous to count. You two are the most successfull things I have ever done. That I am proud of. I am proud of the two of you.
I am not a rich man,money wise that is. But I am rich in so many ways. I'm the youngest of six brothers & sisters. All still living. I watched my mom
& dad .grow old and pass away, they knew my kids, my kids knew them. I watched my kids grow up into two fine young adults & i am married to the most
wonderful woman in the world.
Yea, I'm rich in many ways. I just wanted to thank the two of you. Last year when your Nanna passed away it was really hard, son I leaned on you
pretty hard during those 4 months. You held me up at times and did'nt even know you were. At each juncture of that 4 month decline, YOU were the one
by my side, everytime. When I cried you were there. I have never told you what that meant to me. Even on here, I can't find the words.
Yea, you two are MY children. And I am proud of the two of you. Proud of all the little things that make you two who you are. Compassion, respect, and
trust. You two got the message through all the B.S. of growing up. Neither of you have ever questioned my decisions or my actions. Thank you.
That I am the most proud of. Thank you two for being MY children. I am a rich man indeed. Love you two.
P.S. Allways remember, The two rules of life. 1. Don 't sweat the small stuff. 2. Everthing is small stuff.
