I love people who can make me laugh, even when I don’t want to smile.

It is so hard to crack a smile in prison. Even more so now with everything that is happening out there in our crazy world. But, we all must remember there is always someone out there who has it worse than we do. I feel so blessed to have four amazing kids in my life that make my smile every day. I love all four of my kids, but the special bond I have with my 17-year-old daughter I cherish and wish every dad could have the bond I have with my daughter. I am truly a girl dad.

I know that as we go through life it is hope that allows us to live out each day without apprehensions of what lies ahead of us tomorrow. Without such hope what would our lives be? How would it feel to wake up in the morning and think to ourselves “There is nothing left for me to hope for. Nothing in life for me to look forward to.” Try to imagine just what a miserable existence this would be. My kids are the reason why I have hope for a better future for me, but something is still missing in my life.

I’ve been behind these lonely prison walls for a long time, working on my case, trying to prove my innocence so my kids could get there father back home where I belong. I took a long look at my life and what my future holds for me and it’s not in here. It is out there spending my time with my kids and that special someone. Right now, I have a void in my heart because I need that true friend in my life. Someone I could laugh with; someone I could cry with. Someone who I know all their flaws, mistakes and weaknesses but I still find them absolutely amazing. I want to be the reason why you crack your next smile, will you let me? I feel one day someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else. I took my first step, the next step is yours to make, to see if I am that someone in your life. That true friend you’ve been looking for.
