I want to thank everyone that has supported me throughout my writing endeavors these past three years. It has been a roller coaster ride. So much has happened this year, that it would be impossible for me to write everything down. There are a couple of life events that happened this year that I would like to share:
When someone leaves us it is hard, especially when it is from a sudden illness, and you wonder what is life about and why we should continue. Those thoughts have run in my head, but as it has been so eloquently explained to me; that person was in your life for a reason. They are a part of your life and make up who you are and what life is all about which in part is getting to know people. I lost some very special people this year, but they will always be in my chapters of my life. Please embrace their lives and not dwell on their passing. Life is too short to dwell on the sadness.
Watching your family grow into mature human beings is probably the most satisfying feeling as a father, uncle, cousin or friend of a family. It is passing on the torch, which will continue to burn just fine with the next generation of Americans. The baby boomers have done an amazing job raising their children in such uncertain times. I sleep well knowing that we have past the torch.
Be safe and kind to one another. Peace out until 2019.
