Amen brother! I'm closing fast on the big 4-0, and I've been taking stock of my life. While there are things I would like to change/improve, I figure my wife and three boys put me WAY ahead of the game. We all talk about how we want to change the world, but the only sure-fire way to make a difference is to raise your children up right and show THEM the way. God bless you and your family lostwildcat.

It's all a matter of perspective. When I think of the circumstances of others in this world, I am rich beyond the average human being's wildest dreams...I eat when I please. I sleep in a dry comfortable place. I drive a car and wear clothes without holes. I practice my religous beliefs as I see fit. When I think of Ted Turner or Bill Gates or someone like them...I've beem lied to, cheated, and screwed every which way possible. I can control only how I see the world. I can count my blessings, or I can be bitter. I can control how I feel and how happy I am...just by choosing where I stand to look out over the whole wide world. And so can anyone do.

... So true. However, I must say, one doesn't necesarily NEED to be a father to have "everything in life" ... I'm parentless but I have many young nieces and nephews and relatives. I too feel like I've been extremely blessed so far in life. ... Then again, I'm of the belief that your life is what [b]YOU[/b] make of it.

LOSTWILDCAT: before my baby girl was born two and a half years ago I wanted to have the biggest house with the BMW and a HUGE service company. Me and a big time dealer got into a huge fight I was stressing over and then two days later, my girl comes into the world. Unfortunately she has heart issues and you know what? It puts life in perspective. Screw the cars and the big dreams of lots of money. All I want is good health for me and my family. PLUS! I wish good health on all of you.

Damn, Imb. you are always in such a HUFF! No complaints here. I deal with kids everyday who can barely speak and are looking at a lifetime of being in the control of others because they can't control themselves. No matter how bad things get I have my students to put things in perspective for me. Plus I got a great wife, house, dogs, good friends, one car for everyone in the house if you include the dogs, no kids, not every gun I want but feel lucky to have what I do, HDTV (mmmm... HDTV) and I'd still be happy without all the stuff. If you just take joy in the small things in life, the rest will come and it doesn't matter too much if it doesn't. If you are a whiny, bitter, jerk, life tends to suck no matter what you have.

At the time I posted it, my wife, 33 yrs old at the time, was just coming off radiation and chemo treatment for cancer. (God has seen fit to send her cancer into remission. Praise His name for that) I won't claim it didn't beat me down pretty good - it did. But we made it thru. And God was with us all the way - that and ALOT of true friends He had given us. Life is a rollercoaster ride. But with the right mindset, you can enjoy both the ups and the downs.

Well, if I dont feel the same way in two years Im not doing a very good job. Things happen, I know...life is like a box of chocolates" and all that, but...Like someone else already said, your life is what you make of it, nothing more, nothing less. Nevertheless, Ill let you know how great things still are in a couple of years! Edited to say. Yo Garandman, thanks. Hope your post still rings true..keep the faith and all that, dont loose sight of whats important.

My dad told me many years ago that raising kids was the toughest job he ever had. Now I know what he meant. But as someone else said here, you gotta take the bad with the good. And right now, "it's ALL good"! AB

Winston_wolf, your right, you dont NEED to be a father to have everything,I dont think its necessary to have kids.. The world needs good uncles too! We all know a lot of fathers fall short, its nice to have backup!! My brother will be an excellent uncle and Im glad to know my son would be in good hands should anything happen to his parents.

Thanks for posting that. My two didn't make it, but between nieces, nephews, great-, and one great-great nephew, I'm an uncle 36 times over. It nice to hear someone express their appreciation of an uncle. This might sound petty, but yesterday was a great day. I got air conditioning for my house. I just can't take heat like I used to, and my wife has been suffering worse than me. Last night, the house felt like a motel room. I'm looking forward to cooling off at home after walking home from work tonight.z

I agree with you! Too many people dwell on the past and things they cant or wont change. I say roll with the punches. Put the past behind you, learn from your mistakes and strive to be a better person. What doesnt kill you only makes you stronger!! -- Best of wishes to you!!

The Lord has given me all one could sensibly ask for, and far more than I deserve. I have a lovely, wonderful wife (who is also buddy, girlfriend, advisor/consiglieri, playmate - a bargain combination). My in-laws are great - my mother-in-law is a buddy, too. And, a nice assortment of toys, enough to make me feel guilty.
