Some of you may be wondering what in the world is going on! All this hate, this brooding, this . . . emo! Well, I've not gone emo on you. I posted a while back . . . yea, way back . . . that I'd be posting some of my darker stuff. Of course I also said I'd be posting stuff about dad and some ideas regarding how my family will be handeling Christmas a little different this year. Well, I started part of that but never finished it. Well, until now. I've officially posted all of my 'darker' stuff.
I know some don't like to read things like that. We'd rather read about positive and sunshine; don't get me wrong, I like that stuff too. Sometimes though I think a person can become so absorbed in things like that they tend to lose a grip on reality. I don't care one way or the other really. It's part of my past, part of who I am, and if you'll admit to it we've all had our moments of darkness and despair. They exist, to pretend they don't is a lie. I fear for my children as I know that they too will one day deal with such issues. I only hope that they find a medium to express themselves that helps them deal. I honestly believe that God gave me a talent of communication in order for me to put finger to keyboard to help with my own issues and later, to help others.
I have to give mad props to my good friend 'The Professor'. Words cannot express how much I love this man. I hate not having him by my side day in and day out at the office; but I still get to see him. He's been such an encourager and a great critic. I think you again sir.
Now, on to the other topics. Your cheerful Friar went no where . . . still here . . . still figuring it all out.
