A Fortunate Life

I like to think it's all the fruit of my wit and prowess but I am a fortunate person.

I’m fortunate to have been born in a country that wasn’t war torn and starving. I have been to some of those and it's not so easy to excel.

Fortunate to have parents who worked hard to provide for their children. I have seen parents in this world whose children never had a chance.

Those same parents that taught me to face the world and work hard to provide for my family. Just saying you love a child is not enough, there are lessons to impart.

To have found a woman that I can cherish and adore who, I think, feels the same for me. It seems a rare commodity in today's world.

To have a son that looks up to me and strives to make me proud. I know I set bars high and he consistently sails higher.

To have a job that provides for my family in times where many are without.

To have traveled the globe and met with people from all corners of it.

To have my health and be capable of still growing stronger.

To have escaped unscathed from the perils I have sought for fun.

To have friends that enjoy my company.

Yep, I’m a pretty lucky guy.
