Family is everything
I have a big family. I am one of six children. Both of my parents are one of five children. I have 17 first cousins on my mom’s side and 24 first cousins on my dad’s side. We’ve always been close, never perfect, but willing to do anything for one another.
So when I met my husband, I was excited to find such a wonderful man to start my own family with. Family is very important to me. Unfortunately for my husband, his family is not close like mine is. His family is wrought with grudges, pride, and selfishness (mostly on the part of his parents and their siblings). So he was equally as happy when he found me to start a new family with. On the 21st we celebrated his 33rd year of life. We went out, just the three of us, to dinner at a restaurant he picked and had a wonderful time.
Fatherhood has been difficult for him to adjust to, especially since he is not close to his own dad, who was often out at sea (Navy) when he was growing up. He is trying very hard though to be a good dad. So far he is doing a wonderful job and has been ever so helpful in ensuring our son is well cared for, especially when I have evening meetings. Tonight, I returned home from one such meeting to find this beautiful display of love between a father an his son.
