Today is another day down and its another day closer to being free. Its alot of things that I wish I could do and its things that I plan on doing when I am free. One of the main things thats been on my mind is being a better father. I havent talked to my kids in so long and havent seen them in what feels like years. Im only 31 and being a father at thing point in their lives is hard. Its hard mainly because of the distance and because of the lack of communication. I know that my kids love me and I hope that when they get older they dont have any hatred towards me for being away for so long and missing out on so much. Another thing that I wish Ill be able to do is to love and be loved unconditionally. I want to get married, and have a family of my own Insha Allah!!! When I came to prison I knew deep in my heart that the relationship that I was in wasnt going to last long. Its all my fault and I just wish the best for her at this point. I have to move forward in a positive light and I have to pursue my happiness as well. At this point in my incarceration I dont have anyone that I can call or talk to or share things with or just be there when I need them to be. I have a huge family on my mothers side and my fathes side but its as if I have no family at all. I just want to be accepted, forgiven, and believed in!! Is that too much to ask for???? Be safe out there and have patience and stay watchful!!!!
