True Love Is Hard to Find, Part Two: The Long Road to Tupelo
Taylor Hicks wrote a song not long ago called Do I Make You Proud? I didn't have to write these two books to make my Dad Proud of me. My dad is just proud that I am his son. If it had not been for my Dad then I wouldn't be who I am today. I don't have to do anything to make my dad proud of me because he is already proud of me. My dad was always there for me even when my family turned against me. He was there for me when nobody else was. I have a lot to be thankful for because my dad was always there to see me through. My dad was the one who guided me through the all of the bad times. My dad believed in me when nobody else did. I have tried everything to make my family proud of me but they will never be proud of me no matter what I do but my dad has always been proud of me and all I had to do is just be his son and now I realize that now. I will never have to be afraid to stand alone because my dad will always be there to guide me through. My dad loves me even though my family doesn't and he makes up for the love that I didn't get when I was a little boy. My dad makes feel strong everyday just by being here with me. My dad is the one who taught me to believe in myself and that I can do anything in life if I just believe. I have often wondered why God gave me all of these stories for and now I realize the reason why and the reason is because he wanted me to be able to express my self through writing and writing is a form of art and I am an artist. God let all of this bad stuff happen to me because he wanted me to turn all of that bad stuff into something good. God always takes all of the bad stuff that has happened to you to turn it around and do something good with it and that's what I have done. I have turned all of this bad stuff into something good. I have found my purpose in life and that is to become the best writer that I can be. I never could figure out what my talent was but now I know what my talent is and that is to be a writer. There are a lot of great books out there these days but at least I did what God told me to do because it says in the bible not to hide your talent and I didn't hide my talent. I used it for the glory of the Lord.
