30 Days of Dickens – Day 21

“Men’s courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead,’ said Scrooge. ‘But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. Say it is thus with what you show me.” – A Christmas Carol

My Take – In the past, I have been less of a good man than I ought to have been.  Let’s face it, I was a pretty miserable excuse for a human being for the first 10 years or so of adult life.  One of the things that Irish Woman has done for me is to be a constant reminder that I can be a good man and that she and our children deserve just such a man.  We can all look in the mirror, see the good with the bad, and try to change not just our today, but also all of our tomorrows.  I recognize that I’m not there yet, but I at least know enough to see where I need improvement and to try to follow through on it.
