Actually...I don't think goals is the word I'm looking for. I think aspirations is a better word.
I know, I know...its a matter of semantics, but as is with many things, the details are what matter the most.
For the last seven years I've aspired to be a good husband and in that I think I've been successful. I suppose only God and the Translator could tell for sure. There is no doubt within me that I would be where and who I am today without the support of my wife. She's meant more to me then anything in my life.
Once someone told me that life was a bitch, but with 29 years behind me, more often then not life is...I don't know what life is but, it's not always a bitch. Sometimes its down right rewarding and sometimes even fun.
I stand at the end of a 29 year trail and at the start of another that will lead me to inevitable pain and turmoil but, with those trials will come victories and joy. I look forward to being a father one day. I look forward to reading the Translator's newest best seller. I look forward to many happy years of fulfillment and I even look forward to the trials because, without trials how can I become a better person.
