    I had always wanted children, but by the time I reached 40 I began to think it just might not be in the cards for me. About 11 months after my 40th b-day, I met the woman who would eventually become my wife, and we just welcomed a beautiful daughter into the world 6 months ago. We picked the name Hannah, as it's a biblical name from the old Testament, and basically translates into a gift/favor/grace from God. Grateful, we are.

    I had the biggest scare and challenge of my life this past year.I'ts not over,but the changes in me that came about needed to happen.Life was getting frustrating.I was upset at my commute,work,politics,etc.I needed a change,and I pray nobody has to change the way it was brought about to me,but somehow,I see beauty in it.I didn't have the heart,or will to change myself.Now,food has never tasted better,the sky has never been more beautiful,the air smells so fresh,and it feels good to be kind to others.I am thankful for my support team,and this beautiful,rare day of life.I pray I can say this everyday now,and thanks for a wonderful thread.Also,my guitars have never meant more to me than they do now.

    I am grateful to be alive! 2 years ago I was involved in near fatal motorcycle accident. I hit the back of a car on the freeway at about 50mph because he slammed his brakes on. I broke my Femur, Shin, and Ankle on my left leg. They put a steel rod in my leg from my hip to my knee. Broke two ribs and tore my Colon. I was 10 minutes from dying due to bleeding out internally from my torn Colon. I lived in a rehab facility and learned to walk again. I had several surgeries on my colon and was given a Colostomy bag. The last two years have been hell!! UPDATE: Today I am pretty much all healed up. I had a surgery to reverse my Colostomy bag so its now gone. I still have some swelling in my leg once in awhile but at least i'm walking. I've slowed down a lot and am concentrating on becoming a better person. I am grateful for my family who stuck by my side through all of this. I'm very grateful for the Drs that put me back together and literally saved my life. When you've come this close to actually dying you really look at life in a different way and you tend to cherish moments that you used to take for granted. Take care gang!

    So many things to take note, good health, beautiful wife 40 years, grateful of daily provision, our successful kids and ... our beautiful intelligent granddaughter coming up on 3 this spring. She's my wrestling buddy, she messes with me and I do likewise to her. She had some issues with my settings so she made some adjustments.. ;)

    I'm a super content person by nature so I'll just say I'm on the right side of the grass....I'm good with that.

    I think she is leaning more as a doctor and/or ballerina. But she loves buttons and knobs, has to see what they do. ;)

    Makes me think 2203xman that I need to change a bit, slow down and appreciate things more...basically take like a little less seriously before its too late OR I am forced to make the change. Thanks for your post, I read it a few times!!!

    That post is gold.One of the hardest things about radical change is staying grounded.Playing great Marshall amps keeps me in touch with my good past,and allows me to be the old Mike,yet still be open to change.Keep rock'n Dog,you've got heart...Eddie VanD,so glad you made it through brother.
