It Just Doesn’t Get any better than This

A few days ago, I was seat-belting my son into his seat (he’s 3 years old)….I just haphazardly asked him, “Mack, does your Daddy love you?” He says, “Yes, because you (pronounced “oo”) nice and you not a meanie.” I mean, really….it just doesn’t get any better than that!!

Trouble in Paradise

I have a good friend…..we’ve been friends a few years now. We share some of the same interests. A few days ago, he and his wife had a tough day………”marital discord” as the term goes.  I’m only saying this here, because I said it directly to him (and meant it with no guile whatsoever)…..it really warms my heart sometimes when I hear that other people are having marriage problems…….I often think that my wife and I are the only ones (even though I know that’s baloney). We love each other very much…..errrr, let me try again: I love her very much.

She routinely misuses and abuses me……treats me like so-much-pocket-lint more often than not!  Haha….that’s funny……she needs to read that one.  Let’s just say that I might’ve gotten the algebra of our dynamics mixed up just a little teeeeeny bit in that last part.
Anyway, I’m certainly not one to revel in another’s pain but lots of couples have their bad days…..and so do we………over 17 years of marriage, a little rain must fall!
