2018 the year that changed my life

These past few years have been kinda depressing. One mom had cancer, one had a heart attack, my uncle and grandpa both passed and I got divorced. 2018 though was the year that changed my life and a year that will be close to my heart.  I met by wonderful girlfriend who has brought a smile to my face that I had lost.  She showed me what it was to love again, and love her is what i do.  She not only brought a smile to my face, but she blessed me with a beautiful daughter who was born on 12/19/18.  This little girl, Sophia Kane, is the love of my life and it’s a love that I have never felt before.  I look into my daughters eyes and my heart melts.  Here I am at 39 years old, with my first child. People ask me if im tired already of changing diapers or not getting sleep.  I can honestly say no.  I love every minute of it.  Am I tired?  Sure, but this little person looks at me and I know its my job to protect and care for her.  So now we enter 2019, which is not about me, but about my daughter and my daughters mother.  2019 is about the family that I helped create.

Music to my ears…

First let me start by saying that I tried Tumblr’s blog and my god it was confusing. I’ll just stick to this.

Do you have a song that you can listen to non stop?  Do you have a song that can instantly put a smile on your face?  Do you have a song that as soon as you hear the first note, it brings a tear to your eye?  What about a song that you want played for your funeral?  Ok that last question is kind of weird but people choose their funeral song more often than you may think.

Non stop- 

  I’ll fly with you by Gigi D’Agostino.  This has to be one of my favorite songs.  It brings me right back to my days in the service.

Put a smile on my face- 

  Part time lover by Stevie Wonder. Something about this song just puts a smile on my face.  As soon as the first note hits, I remember visiting my mom in Arizona.

Brings a tear- 

 When my parents got divorced I remember my mom telling me that we’d be under the same bright star.

Funeral song (im dead serious on this one..no pun intended)- 

 I’ve loved this damn song since i could first remember hearing it sampled by Jay Z.
