I spoke with a friend of mine last night. To protect the innocent, I'll use a very tricky way to disguise his name.
Let's call him Oejay.
Oejay came up to me and said, "man I read something on your blog and because of that, when you talked about needing to keep your word to your kids, I went and jumped on the trampoline with my kids."
Now Oejay is a good guy, great dad and husband. Hearing from him that I had encouraged him and challenged him made my day.
We all need someone to say "hey I see what you are doing with your wife and kids. You're trying hard. You're doing a good job. You've got great kids and it's clear you love your wife. It's an example to me. Thanks."
I will try and do that for someone tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.
I know your kids loved jumping on the trampoline, Oejay.
