well first i hope all had a merry christmas and wish you all the best and a happy new year. thank you all for your prayers and wishes. my wife told me the day before christmas that she wanted to talk and wanted to know how i was doing. the talk ended well with a maybe and if things go like they are now and i dont fall back to my old ways she wants to work things out and be my wife. we spent christmas eve and day togather with the kids and for the first time since the break apart she came over sunday with the kids and spent the day just to watch movies and hang out. after we watched the horton who movie the kids went to grandmas to visit while me and the wife watched the happening. i sat in the floor and held her through the whole movie. its a blessing because i never thought i would touch her again. we all had pizza then the youngest fell asleep and the oldest was tired so she left them overnight with me because she had to go to work early. then i took them to eat last night when i took them home to grandmas after she got off. she has been over alot more and ill be with them tomorrow again. basically i have my family back but it will be a while before she comes home to stay. shes being cautious but i understand. thank you all for your prayers. things are going great here with me.:wink: and were all going to a glow in the dark mini golf place friday togather.
