Oh Baby Oh
Most of you will want to slam me for this one. Go ahead. I can take it. I know that many of my opinions are as archaic as the bundling board and for that I do not apologize.
Tournament golfer, Hunter Mahan, was leading through 36 holes in the Canadian Open and was the odds-on-favorite until a phone call came that his wife had gone into labor. He walked off the course to be there for the birth and waved good-by to a potential million bucks. He later thanked his sponsers for appreciating what is important in life.
OK, just what is important in life? I'm sure it's different for each person and varies with generational mores. Is not being at the birth going to do irreparable harm to the little duffer? Would perhaps winning a cool mill. be a nice little nest for the college fund?
If I had been Mrs. Mahan, I would have screamed at my husband to get out of here and do his thing or at least go down to the pub and get drunk with the guys. What woman needs a guy in the way when she is gearing up for a job that has to be done alone. He already had his say in the reason she is in this situation. Enough. What's he going to do, help her push? Oh perhaps they will hand him the scissors and tell him where to cut the cord. Big Deal.
Now it's all share your wealth or so the citizens (oops can't say that word anymore) have been brainwashed to do because of all the POOR people in the US. Show me, a child of the great depression, one poor person in the US. I know poor and what you would show me wouldn't even come close, especially what with all the government hand-outs.
So, am I placing money over fatherly love? No, I'm saying that using your god-given talents and providing money for your family IS fatherly love. When this child is grown and looks at the parents still being married, he/she will understand the real meaning of family love.
