It’s really difficult for me to write this. Not that I have a problem sharing this story but it’s physically impossible to see my screen through the tears.
It’s amazing to think that someone you’ve never met, now thousands of miles away, can impact your life in a way that can make you sob alone in front of a computer screen. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I have a daughter, but this is just one of those stories.
Twitter is kind of amazing. Yah, I’m one of those people. Not the fanatic every-second-of-the-day tweeps, but I can proudly admit that I have my moments. I do my best with the @8BitDads to connect with other parents on the Twitter. I enjoy sharing powerful stories that might not ever make it to major news outlets or go viral. I am thankful for anyone who can poke at my emotional bad-ass-man-fabric long enough until salty tears dissipate.
Today, I’m thankful for @dad_or_alive.
