"Sons"

On my two sons…The ones that don’t talk to me…The ones that live their lives in a strange unknown perfect world…Someone last night told me that we have kids, we raise kids, we help kids but we don’t own them. Once they are gone that’s it…They have choices. The only thing I can do is let it go and I agree. That’s my choice. Us Dads with that problem and don’t think you are alone, there are many of us, sometimes forget that. They are disrespectful, heartless and rude, but its not our problem anymore. Years ago I stopped trying to figure out why this behavior is so popular with males. We made these kids and now its their problem to stumble along in this angry world. Its their responsibility to take care of my Grandkids and these days, its no easy task. Every once and a while I mention this son issue just to remind myself that its OK for them to be like that. Its been this way so long the problem has been reduced to an issue, now that’s bad…The thing is, I think about the loneliness they will have in the future when things start coming around to them. Today for me it will be a long bike ride and a special dinner not necessarily in that order but you get the idea….My mission for today will be to keep cool under difficult circumstances…Have a good one guys……

What is something you worry about everyday? How long has it been plaguing you? Do you think you'll ever overcome it?

Let start with overcome it and I have. Yes, at first it plagued me, made me worry and I will admit,  I think about this issue at least once each day, its my 2 sons. The ones that don’t talk to me…The ones that live their lives in a strange unknown perfect world…Someone last night told me that we have kids, we raise kids, we help kids but we don’t own them.
