In Retrospect and 3 Stitches Later

February 12, 2017

Whoa- what a weekend! Sometimes there are things in life that should be a wake-up call and only idiots don’t hear them. Such was my weekend.

First things first. I have to say that I have the most patient, understanding, and loving wife that has ever graced this side of heaven. I mean she is the definition of that famous Corinthians bible passage that they read at our wedding. She is that kind of good.

I think we all have regrets in our lives and I will never ever doubt again that marrying her was the hand’s down wisest decision I have ever made. It is painfully obvious that she loves me with her whole heart- way more than I often deserve.

It’s hard to say “I’m sorry.” It’s harder to say it when they’ve  heard it numerous times before. Actions really do speak louder than words. And sometimes when you take inventory of your life, you realize that you’re not the best person that you can be. That there are things that are holding you back in life – whether it be a habit, an attitude, or even a bad temper.

Life is too short to be hindered by baggage and regrets. Sometimes you just have to say enough is enough. Old habits die hard. But that’s how you know they’re  worth fighting against. No one else can do it for you and you only get the reward after you’ve slain the dragon.

So things have to change. If I truly want to have a good life, be the best husband I can be, raise a family and be responsible adult- I’ve got to grow up. It sucks that it took me 35 years to figure that out but as they say, “better late than never.”

Oh, and did I mention that I love my wife? And I also want to say thanks for all my friends taking care of me until the cavalry (my caring wife) arrived.  Honey, I promise I will do better than this going forward. I want to be the man that you always envision me to be.
