  Lucky Editor Part Two.
I realize now that one of my major problems was that my dad was never around much as I was growing up. Now I knew this from the get go and always said I was not going to repeat his errors. I was going to be there for my kids. And I was. I changed the diapers, washed the clothes, fed them etc. The problem is that while I know I needed to be 'present' more often than my Dad was, I did not have any specific lessons on how to be a Dad.

Now I am not saying it is really that simple, but think for a minute the lesson you may be teaching you sons about dealing with women by saying that when they scream and yell just ignore it and hide. I am not saying that is what you are doing at all; please take it only as an example. I am not saying you are doing anything wrong at all. I am only explaining that sometimes it may require a more proactive approach to a problem.

To jump back to me for a minute, I do not hold anyone but myself responsible for my actions, I have come to realize that just because one knows one wants to be different than their parent, it does not mean that it will automatically be better.

You are truly a lucky man; I am honored to be part of your life. I value all you have shared with me, and only go into the areas where perhaps you might obtain a different outcome because I truly believe we are all able to make a better life for ourselves and those around us each and every day.

I hope some of this makes sense to you and you will give it some thought. I feel a little better having sat down and actually typed this letter to you and will get back to some serious writing STAT.

PS: Did I ever thank you for the books that I received Thursday? I am so fogged out I can not remember. THANK YOU. I will comment on the Pink Book in the next letter.
