I was thinking about the mistakes I made in my life.

I drank too much.
I did some drugs.
To the point of being homeless for a while.
I lied to family members, employers and friends.
I have been a jerk to some people.
I dumped a woman or two that I loved.
I wasted my money on crap when I should have saved it for a rainy day.
I killed (accidentally) a cat.
Blamed other people for some of my screw-ups.
I didn't always do the job the best that I could do.
I stole a few things.

But...
I learned from my mistakes, paid the price for them and do believe it made me a better person.
I now live the way my parents hoped I would become when they raised me:
Honest with myself and others, hard working and a responsible man.
I did confess my sins, to God and to the people I did wrong when possible and did my best to make things right.

I did feel bad for the wrongs I did.
I am not proud of my mistakes, but I do not regret anything.

Why?
Because that was the path that led me to my wife. And with her, a few years later, came Eva-Mae.



Every stumble before them only took me closer to them.



If I would have done anything different, I would not have met Melinda.



And without meeting her, my daughter would not be the Eva-Mae I know and love today.



They say that everything happens for a reason, and that reason is that little girl.

    Good on you Quebecker!!!!!!!!!

    As far as I see it, that is a major problem in the world today. NO ONE wants to stand up and take reponsibility for their OWN actions/stupidity. They just want to blame/sue everbody else.

    Great attitude. You should consider sharing that post with Eva-Mae some time in her future. My Dad did something similar for me a few years back at a time when it made a world of difference to know how much I was loved and always had been and how important I was in his life.

    It takes a real man to admit that he has made mistakes, but has learned from them. So remember, if you need to forgive anyone, get er done and put that behind you. And remember, say what you mean and mean what you say. An honest man lives by his word. And this verse in the bible, "a tree is known by it's fruit" good or bad..so produce good fruit my friend. It takes a lot of guts to put what you said on this forum.
