2008, New Happenings

It’s been a long time since I’ve made an entry. Life has been quite busy. My wife had major surgery on December 3rd and it was a long difficult recovery. It appears that all is well now.

My daughter reached out and got in touch with me. That was a wonderful miracle. The last time we saw each other was in 1985. She was 6 years old, almost 7. Now she’s a grown woman, 29 years old. She has worked really hard and accomplished a great deal. I’m overwhelmed with joy at her successful endeavors.

My mental illness and drug addiction made me into an absent father. The wonder of it all is that my daughter has forgiven me and is letting me be who I am now; a very different person.

I work very hard at staying abstinent and I also treat my mental illness with the professional help. It is a wonder that I’ve come so far; once a derelict, in and out of hospitals and prisons; now I’m what one might call a “normal” citizen.

I’d tell you more but my wife just came home and I’m going to join her.

I hope you who are reading this have a happy new year and I wish you good health. Love is the most important element of life.

Peace to all of you, even those of you who don’t like what I’ve written before. I am who I am and I’m changing all the time, for the better, I hope.
