What else does a man want in life

| Family and friends | 2 Comments

These are the Gish kids in front of the Golden Gate Bridge...Once in awhile, someone tells you something that ends up really sticking in your mind. That is exactly what happened to me while I was visiting the family and friends back in America during my summer vacation a few weeks back. It was a wonderful and sunny day up in the green hills surrounded by Eucalyptus trees. We were all celebrating our reunion with a fun picnic, great food and some friendly baseball. At the end of the afternoon when it was time to say good-bye, my favorite uncle Dick came up to me, gave me a warm hug, and then he whispered the following in my left ear:

"You've got four beautiful children and a wonderful wife. What else does a man want in life?"

Maybe to some this statement may sound trite, but for me it struck a vital chord deep inside of me. It started to make me think. In fact, since he has said this to me, not a single day has passed without me thinking about the kind statement. The comments are now especially true considering the situation in my life.

You know, I need to settle down and enjoy the wife and kids more.


Yes, you *are* blessed. As am I. :)

what else indeed?
