This morning I woke up to my little dude smiling in my face saying Happy Fathers day daddy!
Behind him was my beautiful wife with a plate of bacon, eggs, sausage, and toast. The bacon was lined up to form a heart. Everyone crawled into bed and we shared a wonderful breakfast together with no TV or internet. The smell of the bacon crept down the hallway to the dog beds, they decided they wanted to be part of this too and jumped on up playfully stealing pieces of bacon from my son’s shirt.
These are the moments and time in this life that I treasure the most. This was like waking up in a Dragon’s treasure horde. I wouldn’t trade all the gems, jewels, gold and silver for what I have.
While I may not be wealthy or rich in a material sense compared to the elites of this world, I know I have more wealth and feel like one of the richest men in the world today!
You can spend all your life chasing after those materials things and casting everything and everyone else around you to the wayside in your pursuit of wealth, but for me those things are only illusions to keep you from the true treasures in this world. Family, friends, and love.
The rest of this story is between the wife and I. As that treasure chest remains locked under privacy and respect for the rest of you.
I hope that you too can find the true treasures this world has to offer. It is out there. And is guarded by the great Wyrms of misinformation and some ideologies that would tell you this way of life is wrong and harmful to women.
My wife loves to cook and take care of the house. It makes her happy, as It is not a one way street. I pitch in when I can. We share the encumbrance load of the party campaign in life.
Just as all things should be… Balanced.
