Today I talk about the worst day of my life (or definitely in the top 5).
It started out as a wonderful day. I had a great day at church, I stopped by Play it Again Sports and found a BRAND NEW Total Gym, and not one of the those cheap ones that you find at department stores. This was THE Total Gym, and it was normally 1,200 and this one was $300. A quick call to the nurse and we decided this was my Christmas present. My Christmas shopping was done, it was a warm and sunny day for November. I drove home to Cleveland, and thought to myself, “What is this feeling????”
The Nurse and I had actually put together a few good weeks. We were at least headed in the right direction.
I was going to have money for Christmas thanks to my job.
I had a great wife, and fabulous kids.
Life was good. Praise God. What was that feeling… oh I remember this. I think I was happy.
I took the total gym down and put it on the bed.
Life can change in the blink of an eye. The last two episodes show how I had been having issues with my wife. I have “pulled back the curtain” to show my warts to show you, to BEG you to get counseling before it gets to a point like what we affectionately call “November 28th” at the Jackson house.
I don't want to spoil the ending. I will tell you that this is just the beginning of the “Crap Cannon” of 2010,” and I'm not looking for a pity party. I'm looking for you to learn, please learn, from my mistakes.
