A Time to Reflect

Hey there. Tomorrow is July the 3rd. Tomorrow is our anniversary. My wife and I will be celebrating our 4th year of marriage. She has been a godsend to me. In a time where my life was nothing but chaos, she came into my life and gave me a reason to fight on. Because of this, I'll always refer to her as my angel.

You know, she didn't have to do the things that she did for me. When we met, I had two small kids and I was kicking my ex-girlfriend out of my place, with more than enough resistance from the ex... and she didn't need to take on that burden. But she did, and because of it, I know that she loves me. At the tender age of 19, she took me in, along with all my "baggage". When all others would have ran at the thought of having to raise kids at that age, she stood by me. Even after all the shit that we went through, she was there, and became the loving mother and wife that our family needed. She stood by her man and there is nothing more that a man can ask for.

She just sent me an Email wanting to legally adopt the kids. Never occurred to us that it should be done. I'm telling you, this woman is the woman of my dreams.

Tomorrow is our anniversary... and I'm grateful that I'll be spending it with the one was meant for me. You are the world to me. Thank you, babe.

    I read your other post: many kids lie when they are afraid of the consequences. They might know they did something wrong, or maybe didn't think about it at the time, but later when confronted they are afraid so they deny it. Perhaps the way you confront them contributes to their fear? Maybe asking them to not do it again without demanding to know who it was would help. I'm not a parent, only a teacher, but sometimes all it takes is adjusting your approach.

    Wishing your family all the best for the future! :)
