A Father's Instruction

Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go. As we were headed out to my Mom's today for Thanksgiving (I almost forgot the turkey), Ray started out a conversation with Will. I was actually getting a bit excited at the prospect of the wisdom Ray was about to impart to our young son on this holiday morning.

What was I thinking?

It went a little something like this, "Will, if you ever marry and have a family will you promise me one thing?" Wait for it, wait for it....

"Would you just spend the money and buy yourself a quality Christmas tree stand, because you are going to save yourself years of misery."

And that my friends is I why I married this man.
