Battle Tested

Man does life beat you up.

Father of five

My youngest are 17 (twins)

I’ve been a battered Marine

I’ve been beaten by tweens.

I’ve moved 10 times and carried 30 couches

I was hit by a truck, bashed by the reef, infected, rejected and detested.

Being a father has put me front and center before the chaos of the cosmos more than I can count.

And with all that chaos my body has taken the hit and this old frame is still hitting back.

The painful reunion

The weight

The gain

The pain

The loss

Fixing broken pieces

Man does life beat you up.

But I’d do it again.
