One Of My Fundamental Truths

Whether this is a character flaw or not, I'm not sure. I'd like to think it's one of my few great qualities. Here it is: I treat people the way I want to be treated. And because of that, I'm a helper. A fixer. You have a problem? I will always do what I can to help you fix it or get through it.

When someones world comes crashing down around them, it ceases to matter whether I like or dislike the person, I will do whatever I can to help. Why? Because I would hope that if I were to be in the same position, that person would do the same for me. Is that insanely naive of me? Probably but, It never stops me from doing what I do.

I spent a good part of my first marriage waiting to be treated the way I treated him. It never came. I do and unconsciously treat Wade the way I want to be treated. I love him, care for him, and always have his back. I get the same in return. It's magical and glorious.

Same goes for all of our children. For our kids, that's just what parents do. They fix. But, what if their problems extend to matters out of their reach and/or knowledge? I'm on it. Because I love them. I love them all.

In recent days I've been thanked over and over and even called a saint. I definitely don't think so. All I know is that, if you need me to be there for you, I got your back.
