Subject: why he BEGGED to sleep on the couch (true story)
This morning I was thinking about something
that was a pretty ‘big deal’ in my life.
As you probably know…..
4 1/2 years ago I was at rock bottom.
I literally crawled my way onto my dad’s front
porch – when I couldn’t take another day of the
miserable life I was living.
I Was Broken.
I remember knocking on his door – him looking
at my sunken face – and saying….
“Son. What have you done to yourself?”
I didn’t have an answer.
I could only mutter the words…..
“I don’t know how I got here. But if you’ll let me
crash on your couch and get back on my feet I’ll do
everything I can to turn things around….”
4 1/2 years later….
…last Monday – after coming home and sleeping
for 5 hours, exhausted from the most amazing
and exhilarating weekend …ever – I asked my Dad
casually if he wanted to grab a quick bite over
coffee at a diner near my house.
When we finished, just as we went to get up
and leave, he stopped and looked at me dead in
my eyes….and said:
“Son, you’ve come a long way from sleeping on
Sometimes you just want to make someone proud.
For years, that someone was my Dad. Today, I’m
grateful to have a Dad (and an awesome step Dad)
….and be a Dad myself.
I got HUGE props to anyone out there being a
Father to their kids – or making an effort to.
And It’s never to late.
Happy Father’s Day, fellas.
And mad love to all the single Moms out there
And never quit on your dreams….
….or your people.
