What hurt the most was that I had accepted them.
I’ve never had a relationship as special as the unique ones I have with each of them.
It’s a path I never expected to travel, but am glad I had the courage to walk it.
Being Dad is the greatest, scariest, happiest, lifetime of dread I could have ever signed up for.
Life lessons that served me no good will serve them no good. It’s my duty, as their father, to see that.
Take a moment, think about your words, and then say what’s in your head. Or, even better, don’t.
You don’t know what’s missing because you don’t even realize a piece should be there.
There are so many pops and cracks, you’d think I was a walking pile of rap music record albums.
“Who has seen me today? Did I talk to people like this? What is wrong with my face? Am I freakin’ melting?!”
Some loved ones are gone because they’re in a better place now. Others are gone because I am.
