Day 331…Vows and wounds

Day 6 is my favorite in the BBTL book.

Day 331 is the hardest for me to read and to accept fully what it is saying to me.

“Kids came early before I understood myself, my wound, my Miss, much less what it meant to be a dad to little boys…” – Chet

You see, I did not decide to live up to my commitments as a husband and father until I was 45 years old.

I knew I was breaking vows and causing pain to those I promised to love and protect. But I didn’t care enough to do anything about it – instead, I justified my selfish priorities, my vows to myself.

Looking back, I realize that it did not have to be this way.

I could keep my vows to myself and to others – and so can you.




Deep wounds require great forgiveness.
