Jonas Brothers

My wife took the kids to the Jonas Brothers concert here in Cleveland at the Q.  They told me that it was the most fun they’ve ever had out together.  The kids said it was a blast.  I’m so glad I was able to do that for them even though I think my wife had more fun then they did.  When I talk to the wife next I’ll try and get more details.  I’m not too familiar with the Jonas Brothers music, I mean I’ve heard a couple of their songs and I know that they’re very popular but It’s not something I get the chance to listen to every day. 

The improtant thing is that I was able to provide my girls with an experiance that they’ll never forget.  For all you parents out there, I know that you know what I’m talking about.  Every fathers dream to see the smiling faces of those you love, knowing that you had a hand in creating that smile.

My Father Terrance Sr.

He goes by Terry. One of the greatest guys you’ll ever meet. He’s one of those guys that no matter what you ask of him, if he’s able to do it for you he will. He’s the most dependable and reliable person I know. Skilled in almost any thing. He went to a trade school growing up for carpentry, was a mechanic and refinishing technition for an insurance company for almost fifteen years, went into business with his Dad running an excavating co. He’s a great heavy equipment operator. He was driving a truck for an oil drilling co. and now he’s running the warehouse for them. He still drives the truck sometimes but he’s doing really well for him self.

Recently I got him into a business called Mona Vie. He was reluctent to join but having common since and seeing the compensation plan he dove into it. It didn’t hurt when I told him that it was absolutly free to join in 2009. I think he did it for me but like I said, he’ll do almost anything to help someone out. If he lived a little closer, I could work with him, teaching him Real Estate Investing. I think he would enjoy it, especially once he started making real money. Perhaps we could have some long conversations on the phone in the near future.

I use to work with him at Dexter Excavating with my Grandpa. I miss it. Being with him every day was one of the most rewarding times of my life. See I’m a very hard worker. I always give one hundred and ten percent no matter how physical the work. Having my father compliment me and look at me daily with that pround look on his face, only made me work harder. My whole life he’s been there for me. Suppoting me in baseball, football, and life. Never showing me anger, only disappointment or approval. He raised me the way that I would like to raise my own kids.

I’m still workikng hard. I can only hope that he’s still as proud of me now, as he was then.

Thanks Dad, I love you.

My Sister Taylor

My little sister is 14 years old and is coming into her own life. She lives with my Mom and Dad more than two hours away from me. We text message all the time, that seems to be her only form of communication. I wsh I could see her more. She’s wonderful in sports like I was and this year she has opt out of playing. I remember playing ball and having nothing else on my mind except for when was the next game. I couldn’t wait to play again. She recently aquired her first boyfriend and ever since it’s ” I love him this and I love him that. Even when she texts me now her signature says how she loves him. It’s because of him that she’s not with her friends playing ball. I don’t want her to get hurt and in addition to that I realize that she may have wasted her time and missed out on becoming better at the game she loves. The only oportunity she may have had to make something of herself and go to college with a scholorship. Her mind is too young to understand the mature thoughts of future responsibility. She’s living in the moment with no care of what the next day brings.

I’ve had it all, money, security, great friends, and I’ve lost it all. I spent eight years in the U.S. Marine Corps, and have done my time in the sand. I’m now home and working hard to rebuild the type of life I once had. This time doing it with two daughters and a lovely wife in my arms. My sister has no clue the type of commitment and dedication that life can be. I wish I had more time with her to show her the things I know and the things I’ve seen. Sometimes I feel bad for moving away from her but to be honest that was the only way that I was going to succeed. There was no oportunity in that town. Just sports and education. Is there anything that I can do from 100 miles away?

Having a rough day at the office. It’s…

Having a rough day at the office. It’s one of those days that’s not real tough to get through, but everything seems like it’s taking forever. I feel as if I’ve been here for 12hrs already, though it’s only been four.
