Tonight, I sit alone in a hotel room in Boulder thinking about you, your brother, and your dad. And I miss you all more than ever!
I made a decision two years ago to come to the city and make more money so that I could help better support our family. I wanted to be able to give our family more – things like a house, college tuition for you and your brother, a retirement plan, etc. But I’m realizing more and more that, that probably wasn’t the best decision I’ve made.
I want to provide for our family, but I want my family more. I want to be there for homework, to cook dinner and eat together, and for bed time. I don’t know how much longer I can do this, but I miss all of you. More importantly, I feel like I can’t contribute to you enough. I want to give you the best life I possibly can, and if it means me working here for the rest of my life, I’ll do that… I just want to be home again.
