Bless you my friend. One day at a time, that’s all any of us can do. It’s sad that it really doesn’t take much to have it all crumble down. We’ve had ups and downs. But you just keep going. You are alive and able to work. Wife and 2 beautiful daughters. That’s all you need to keep you moving. Merry Christmas!

I see people making coments about others spelling. Is your life that perfect that you can make fun of such a petty thing. Shame on them

We’re all in the struggle my brother. Keep your head up and take one day at a time. Failure is not an option. You just had some trials and tribulations. Some of us go thru worse ones than others. Don’t worry about the spelling. I would fail any spelling bee myself.
