I don't watch American Idol usually, but with them bringing in Steven Tyler as a judge it raised my interest. Plus my girls watch it and like for me to watch it with them.
This guy was on there, and this is a guy that is owning it. This is a man. This is character.
If I were the one in the wheelchair, I would not want my wife sticking by me. I'd want her to go find someone else and live a happy life.ReplyDelete
Death is preferable to that condition in my opinion.
Maybe. But his point was, that's the vows you take in marriage. Through thick and thin, till death do you part. That's what dedicating your life to someone means. I would stick by my wife if the same happened.ReplyDelete
My wife and I watched that last night. Her first comment was, "Would you leave me if I was like that?" I told her Hell no. I would stick by her through anything. I might be pissed off at how unfair things were for her, but my wife is my best friend and i ain't leaving.ReplyDelete
That guy is a real man. Not some douche who talks a big game but doesn't do anything when push comes to shove. I salute you Paul for putting this up and making all us "men" realize what type of balls it takes to be a real man.
Me too David. My wife is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. I wouldn't leave her for anything. Through thick and thin, till death do us part. She's my best friend and the person I love most in this world. Nothing could ever take me away from her.ReplyDelete
I showed my wife this video from your blog - we were both in tears, man. (That's two tear-jerkers from you now...) Maybe it was the recent death in my family or the fact that my wife was feeding our baby girl while we watched, but that was an eye-opener for the both of us. That's real commitment in the face of so much divorce, etc. I hope he wins on character alone. Not to mention he seems pretty talented.ReplyDelete
Me too Chad. I hope he wins or at least gets far enough to make an even bigger name for himself.ReplyDelete
I lost my wife to Cancer 5 years ago. Laurie also had MG. I would have been glad to push her around in a wheelchair for the rest of her life if needed just to have her here with me and the kids. Loneliness sucks! Sickness and Health is right, Paul. That video made my cry. I ain't ashamed.ReplyDelete
Terribly sorry to hear about that IronBear.ReplyDelete
That's how I feel. No matter what I would always be there for my wife. For better or worse.
I'm never ashamed to cry. Some people see it as a weakness. I just see it as being human. Crying is no different than any other natural emotion like anger, excitement, jealously, etc. I cried last night thinking about Dozer, and how much I still miss my good buddy.
