Let me preface this by saying that I’ve had plenty of great days, I’ve also had my share of shit days. But looking back as far as I can remember three stick out to me. Ironically they are all days that I have met someone new. What are these days you may ask? Well here they are in order
Let’s start with 7/14/13. What is this day you ask? This is the day that I met the girl of my dreams, the person who was my missing puzzle piece, the person who makes me complete. That’s right I’m talking about my beautiful fiancé Christine
I remember that day like it was yesterday, and I know I’ve told that story a million times so I’ll spare you the sappy, details, but from this day on there hasn’t been a single day that I haven’t thought about her, we weren’t even dating and I had these feelings of love that were inescapable. I knew she was who I wanted to spend my life with, you might say I was the original Joe Goldberg. We’ve been through it all, multiple surgeries, rough times, good times, and multiple Valentines Days…which is what gave me the inspiration for this blog. Happy Valentines Day Christine, I don’t ever want to spend it with anyone but you. You!!! (She will be the only one to get that)
Next up to bat is 7/8/16. I’m sure you can guess what this is, that right! It’s the day that I met the second best girl in my life, my daughter McKenzie.
There’s a lot to unpack with this one, it’s the day I became a father, the thing I’m probably best at. She’s the one who pushes me, influences me, and inspires me to be a better man. Sure I’m tough on her sometimes but I can’t even put into words how much I love this little girl. She’s my everything and more. One day she’s going to grow up and live her life and honestly that scares me more than any man ever could, I wish she could stay 5 years old forever, she’s the best.
The last day is the most recent, it was a little under a week ago and that day is 2/9/22. The day my son came into my life, that’s right the day Barrett came
We haven’t spent that much time together but this little dude completes me, just the road to get to where we are today was so rough that I was almost sure that it would never come, multiple complications, doctor visits, and tears plagued the last 9 months but in the end we managed to miss all that negative shit and our little boy is here. He’s totally a Mama’s boy but I’m hoping he spends all the time he can with his dear old dad. I’m sure I’ll expand on the trials of this pregnancy in a later blog, so I don’t want away to much of the story this time around. Love you WereBear/Baby Bear/Barry/Bear. Those are the nicknames I’ve came up with in the past week, I’ll update when I come up with more.
Well that’s it, the three way tie for the best day of my life. What are your best days? Sound off in the comments
