    Bottom line here is men struggle like hell day in and day out, as did my Dad silently, courageously and in absolute loneliness, to find 'balance' in being a good father, husband, breadwinner, coach, mentor, psychologist, example etc. The problem is this guys knows only about .00001% of the time whether I'm 'doing it right' as although I am not complaining, I am not 'measuring up well' most the time......until I read of the exploits, experience, strength and hope of others.......
    Thank you men....for that......cause I sure as he11 never said it enough to my Dad......who gave me a very full tool box for the mechanics of all this......but still have a very clumsy time with the 'comfort' part of....that my girls help me with as Sparky alluded to....
    Are you reading my mind??

    I'm blessed with a wonderful partner who I can share my insecurities with. She is my strength more than she'll ever know even as she knows me, maybe better than I know myself.
