It is not often that one gets to actually do what one really wants to do for a living and love it. Count me as one of those fortunate few. I was able to live my dream career for twelve years. Suddenly however, my wife died and I had choices to make. Continue with my dream career, with the graveyard shifts and hazerdous environment where my then 2 year old daughter was being raised by everyone BUT me, or make a leap of faith and change careers to better take of my daughter...I chose to be a father and put my career aside...

Two years later, I was working for a great company, however without benefits and I was not full time. Last Tuesday, I was promoted to full time with full benefits and retirement!!! As I said, it is not often that one gets to fulfill their dream career. I have been so fortunate that I did that AND I am starting a new career that I love as much as the first! How cool is that? I feel like a youngster again starting from scratch...Monday through Friday, 7-3.....My little girl is so gonna appreciate that!!!!


Sorry, just wanted to share that....... :p

So YOU'RE the guy who brushes the sand of the supermodels when they're doing photo shoots on the beach. Congratulations.

Sorry to hear about your wife. I don't know what I'd do if I lost mine. Congratulations on your promotion. You deserve every perk that life has to offer you at this point.

Good on ya.

Just out of curiousity, what was your dream career?

Much to everyone's dismay, I am sure, I was a Sheriff for 12 years. I loved it and I was good at it. I was not your normal 'cop'. I gave everyone respect from the get go until they proved to me that they did not deserve my respect. I was NEVER one of those 'badge heavy' assholes who had something to prove...

Fast forward two years, I now work for a local energy company and am loving every minute of it....So does my beautiful little daughter.... :)

Life CAN be good, ya know?

Wow Big K, somewhere between Heaven & Hell, my very best to you.


I guess the only good news, is that there will always be a beautiful girl hanging on your every word.


God bless you dude.

YES!

You, sir, are what a man and a father should be. I happy you're being rewarded for doing the right thing under circumstances that I can't even imagine.

I applaud you in your taking a chance to afford you more time to spend w/ your daughter. Not many would have the balls to do that. Congrats, and I wish only the best for you- which seems to be panning out.
