I am a very fortunate man.
I have had many wonderful moments in my life, last night was another in that chain. Gage and I camped in the front yard, for our first time camping. We had a fire, cookies and popcorn, telling stories, just sharing love.
I have felt so much love both from and towards Gage this past 2 months that I can't imagine anything better. I must have done my life right. That little man adores his Papa and his Papa adores him.
Today has been a very emotional day so far for me. I have the love of Gage and the love of my wife. I truly feel sorry for people who can't find that sense of peace that love brings to you. This is no time for anger and hatred towards others, yet that's where we have gone.
I never really had true peace in my life until about 3 years ago when I turned 70. Many things came together at the same time to change my life forever. I found inner peace.
I say I am a very fortunate man because I have 3 loving women in my life, my wife, our daughter, our granddaughter, and 1 great grandson . I would not change it for the world!
All I can wish for anyone is that you may sometime in your life feel that inner tranquility.
I love all of you and will always be there for you, if not in life, in spirit. I know my time is drawing closer each day, I only want to see you become the person I know you will be.
May all of you find peace.
