It’s nice to get a letter like this especially when you put so much of your time and effort into a project. This is why I do what I do.
He was not one of wealth and fame
And no one even knew his name.
He was just known as dad, the only father they ever had.
He worked long hours for very little pay
Yet their clothes were clean every day.
He never lost hope, yet he learned to cope.
He worked at night so he could stay with his children during the day.
He would give them breakfast then take them to school
So that they could learn the golden rules.
His routine was always the same- it would hardly ever change.
Clean the house, take a nap, and for the children prepare a snack.
Then start to prepare for dinner, which wasn’t always a winner.
Yet they ate healthy and never went without
Of that there is no doubt.
In the afternoon pick up the kids and bring them home
During the day they were never alone.
They would change their clothes then have a snack
While he took another nap.
They did their homework when he slept
In the softness of his bed.
He would then wake up and dinner he would serve
And not a complaint was ever heard
They would say grace and he would ask: ” how was your day? ”
Wash the dishes and put them away.
They could watch TV. until it was nine
Take their showers and then bedtime.
This was the life of a single DAD
, and it was the best part of his life he ever had.
CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING!

Every one that is proud in their heart is an abomination to the Lord : though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil. When a man’s ways please the Lord , he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Proverbs 16:5-7 KJV
For three months now I been going to a Christian Counselor Dr. Tryon. He’s been telling me that I have to not allow people to effect me. I care so much about what people think and that somewhere along the way I lost me. Making others my priority, and neglecting my needs to grow. He said I am not controlling, but that in itself is not good. I should be to a certain point and to ask God for grace to control. I need to do my own thing.
I now understand and over the past month or so my mind has opened up and it’s like I’m free for the first time in 30 years. What wisdom that man has.
Out of the clear blue sky my 11 year old asked me what does the devil look like? I told him that movies and pictures show him having horns and a red cape. The fact is the Bible says the devil can have the appearance of an angel of light. I told my son to concentrate of Jesus. He only will protect us from the storms during our darkest hours.
I see so many bright things happening in 2018. Business being one of them. I had a client tell me today… “right now you’re eating PEANUTS but it won’t be to long before you’re enjoying PECANS and PISTACHIOS.” Well, that sounds good to me. I’ve worked hard this year to get back into stride to where I was in 2006. Now that was a great year. And next year my goal is even bigger. Double Six Figures… here I come blazing. Yahoooo!
I started my day at 3:30 AM. I just don’t have enough time in the day. Tomorrow getting up at 4:00 AM. I have 5 jobs that I have to work on in the morning including an animation project just in today. For a couple months during the summer I wasn’t busy at all and now I’m definitely making up for it. So tired though. Pushing through.
