It’s been a while since I’ve written anything about my family. In the beginning, when I started this blog, the point was to keep a journal. I’ve done that…somewhat.
I don’t necessarily want to write about MY family right now, although Austin is growing like crazy, as is Addie, who started to crawl last week. That’s super fun. Kim is also wonderful as ever.
I want to talk about the importance of family, with respect to someone I met this past week. He’s 42 years old, and just got married a year ago. He’s a good guy, who has already made a lot of money and had a lot of “success” in life.
We were talking the other day and he told me that he and his wife are now trying to make babies, because that’s what’s important in life. Money is nice. Friends are cool. Family is important.
Why is it important? I’m not sure I know. I just know that my family means the world to me. I can’t imagine going through life without a family. I’m sure part of the importance of the family is the joy you get from seeing your posterity grow and succeed at things. It’s awesome.
I respect this guy a tremendous amount. Right now he’s still growing his business, but he’s focusing more on his family right now, because he knows that’s what really matters in life.
Sometimes I need to focus less on my computer and my blackberry, and more on the people around me who actually care about me.
My computer doesn’t care.
