Casey like's lots of plates on his bar-- and a little help from dad.
You can learn a lot about yourself from being a dad. Read this dad's story:
I have always prided myself on my ability to go it alone, but this journey -- which at times seems very isolating -- has taught me just how much I truly, deeply need the help and support of others. It has been quite humbling. That's why one of the most surprising aspects of this experience has been the reaction, and lack thereof, of close friends. People I believed would be there for us have faded into the background for reasons I can't quite ascertain. Perhaps our situation makes them uncomfortable; perhaps they're fearful we might need too much; perhaps they are simply busy with their own hectic lives. Whatever the case, the sting remains. Equally surprising, however, has been the reaction of other friends -- some old, some new -- who have come forward to offer their support in remarkable and wondrous ways. Their acceptance of us in general, and of Colin in particular, has been a salvation of sorts. Never a joiner, I've come to learn the value of community and the importance of asking for help.
Happy Father's Day to the dad's in my family: Dad (Rick), Matt, Elmer, Mike, Tom, Adam, Taylor and of course, Kurtis. Happy Father's day, also, to the dad's in our gym family - of which there are all together too many of you to name!
