I am a lucky man

There are lot of things in my life I am grateful for. In many ways I am a very lucky guy.

I have a family that loves me. All of them

When I came out to my mother at 39 years old, she did not hesitate to offer her support.

My sister has been supportive too. Oddly enough, I think I talk to her more now than I ever have before.

Even my father, who has always been a little on the cranky side, has been supportive. Last year he had the chance to meet T and still asks about him from time to time.

I have 4 great kids. Not that I play favorites, but my daughter does seem to have a hold on my heart that I was not ready for when she was born.

I have a wife who loves me. Even though we are dealing with a tough situation now, I know she loves me. She wants me to be happy and I want her to be happy too. We really enjoy each other company, we do not fight (maybe a little sometimes, but just a little) and we have a good time when we are together. Many times we are thinking the same thing at the same time. She is my soulmate and I am hers.

I have seen or read about it many times. When the husband comes out of the closet, the wife goes crazy, (and often with good reason). K has not done that. Yes, she has been hurt, and at times, angry, she has never been intentionally mean or done anything to hurt me. In fact quite the opposite has been true. I am a lucky man.

I have some good friends. T has been a REALLY good friend to me thought the hardest of times.

I am not a very religious man. I do believe in God, though not the god of the Jerry Falwell's of the world. I have been blessed in many ways and I am grateful.

Good, grateful is a good thing. One more thing you might think about. I had a therapist once that told me forget about trying to be "happy" and go for's so much more easy.

Think about it.
