Working A Lot

by Byron on December 24, 2015

Decker and Gibson,

I’ve been working a lot lately, guys.  And for the next six months, it will probably continue.  I see you every day and spend time with you every day, but not quite as much as I would like.

I’m doing the final transition of the law firm from Grandpa to me.  It’s a different firm, now concentrating in workers’ compensation and personal injury.  A few months ago, I had two of our five lawyers announce they were leaving within a few week time period.

As a consequence, I’m left with more work than I’d like.  Growing up with a father who worked too much, it scares me.

Plus, you guys are saying and doing new awesome things every single day.  It’s amazing!  I don’t like missing a second of it.

But it’s a lot of pressure, providing for you guys.  It’s scary for me.  And hard.  And some days really scary and hard.  I want so badly to provide you guys with a great home and a great education and all that you and your mom need.  It’s half my mission.  The other half of my mission is to love you guys and connect with you on a deep, deep level and have you guys feel safe and loved.  It can be hard to balance my two self and universe imposed mandates.  But I’m trying.  Everyday.

I don’t say this to get credit or points with you guys.  I say it because it’s me.  It’s my experience – what I’m going through day to day and I want you guys to know me, just like I want to know you and hope that you will share your experiences with me.

I love you guys!

So, so much.

Dad
