The most amazing role for a human being is that of being a mother, traditionally beyond Adam's reach. 

The next greatest role is that of being a father, beyond that of boss or king.

Donning either role is a privilege and tremendous responsibility. You'd have to ask each of my four sons to know how I have been doing.


Twice, divorce has cut short my time in the house, when the two boys I was helping raise with​ wife were around the same age, the first time with Rachel, Russ was 15, Alexander 12. This time with Katie, Riley was 13, Sawyer 10.

And each time I was served my divorce papers while laying up in rehab after totally breaking apart, the first time from alcohol and crack addiction, the second from a stroke from the fall and likely upon impact with the ground. ​
