Ben Drake West Ryde, NSW, Australia
One huge desire has been to be that stay at home dad for many years and to work on giving our kids a father who can go on holidays with them regularly. A father involved in their lives, over the last year I have seen that involvement increase that have been able to travel and take time off to go away with the family on trips and holidays.
That desire has grown stronger to be at home raising our 3 kids, our twin daughters and Jamie. That I attend events for the kids. Its taken a lot to realize that what really wanted to do and what was meant to do was the area that at times struggled with, for many years it was a battle watching grandmother passing away. That was part of the desire though to be there for those people.
That desire has grown so deep these days that it is a passion to give our family a better life. Also to help families to live better lives themselves. Its time to say to those who want to put their opinion in and push away from the path that choose "does this decision that I have made, impact You in anyway at all?". That way keeping my own desire strong and allowing to achieve that goal.
Thank you to my amazing wonderful mentors and friends from mentoring for free, especially Ken Klemm and Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your ongoing guidance, love, support and encouragement. Thanks to my amazing wife for life Jenny who is outstandingly beautiful and gets more beautiful daily.
Your friend for life,
