I'm laughing as I write this because I never thought I would be a blogger. Those of you that know me are probably sharing the laugh since you know I have avoided posting any of my own writing. But here I am - needing to get some things out.
Let me start by saying I have been blessed with a loving wife and beautiful son. These are gifts from God and I truly am grateful for them. I'm also grateful for all of my e-friends (You are a great bunch).
I think the greatest issue I have is pressure. The decisions for my family are on my shoulders. I know some may say, discuss it with your wife. I do. She's wonderful and wise, but the final decision still comes back to me. We have a very traditional marriage. I bring home a pay check, she is the one that works (Hey taking care of my son is a hell of a lot more work than I do in a day). But the pressure remains.
There is a for sale sign on the front lawn of the place we rent. The land lord is considering an offer. I have to find a new place for us to live. I look at my son. I look at my wife. They trust me.
Pressure. If I fail, I've failed them. Pressure. If .... If .... If ..... If .... pressure. My shoulders are getting tired. I believe God has a plan. I know he won't let me down.... but I would be lying if I told you I didn't feel the weight on my shoulders.
