Re: Can you help ease my soul

Seeing your own child being born (even if you are behind a curtain during c section) is the greatest miracle of all. And your wife / girlfriend will need you, it's a tough recovery.

I had a nutty friend in the 1980's, wife was 9 months pregnant ... ready to give birth any second, and the fool takes off to see a show many hours away. That essentially sealed the end of his marriage.



Byrds Turn! Turn! Turn! Lyrics

Words-adapted from The Bible, book of Ecclesiastes
Music-Pete Seeger

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

I'm with the WTF camp. While I understand about wanting to go to shows, your wife having your child always trumps a concert, even if you're in the band! Please realize how special this is, my second was born 6 weeks ago and there was no place I'd rather be! Being there when your child is born is the most amazing thing you'll experience. Also, feel lucky that your wife is able to get pregnant, I have a few friends who have literally been trying for years and/or had to adopt...
Those who hear not the music. . . think the dancers mad.

Dude, I'm mean Dad, get used to missing a lot of things you'd like to do...including sleep....It's called responsibility and priorities.

I'll save a seat for you on the couch tour....I hope, I hope.

Congrats JStraw. And all the new parents.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
