It’s been a hell of a couple of weeks and I have a lot to be thankful for and to reflect on. I have a lot of good news to share and some to hold on to for a couple of weeks.
The most recent news is one I have had a lot of mixed emotions about until tonight. I actually learned an important lesson this week and the story is both sad and happy.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am crazy protective of my family. I always want what I think is best for them which is not always what is best for them at all.
The news was that my sister in law Kate got engaged to her boyfriend of two years named Spencer. When I first heard the news that this was going to happen I was worried cause I did not think they could handle this type of decision. I had a lot of questions but was worried about voicing them cause I did not want to come off as an asshole.
Tonight we had them over for dinner and my plan was to act happy and not say anything unless spoken to. This plan was going good until Kate asked me point blank why I was being quite and if I thought she was making a mistake.
I looked at her and addressed my concerns and found that my concerns were already her concerns. She knew where I was coming from and actually appreciated me being so protective over her. One thing I can and will always say about my relationship with Kate is that we have always been upfront with one another about everything. I actually met her before I met her sister(my wife).
The rest of tonight went really good with a lot of wedding talk and a trip for ice cream at the local DQ. We then went to check out a venue and I thought it was perfect.
The lesson that I learned this week was to no matter how much you have an issue with everything that is happening you need to be supportive and always have your family’s back.
Now I can say that I am so excited to be apart of this great milestone in Kate and Spencer’s life. I know that they will have an excellent marriage and with will be truly happy. Congrats guys! Love you!
