I had plans. Big plans. I was going to be an accomplished actor or commercial artist. I can’t say my plans failed, they just went down a different path and I have been blessed with a wonderful job and four beautiful children, a Godly wife and, as of this writing, seven grandsons. In all the blessings of life, God saw to it to give me great subjects to write about. Fitting writing into my life was an incredible thing in itself. Inspiration would come to me after an event or happening and I just couldn’t wait to sit down and allow God to let the words flow through my fingers. I couldn’t feel more blessed. I just hope the inspiration I felt when writing these poems would give someone else knowledge that some of the things they are going through, others have felt too… Kids, Love, Faith, Aging Parents, Divorce and others are apart of all of our lives. This is the lighted path that God has given me so far. Let’s walk.
