“Well I’m thankful for the things I have,
And all the things I don’t.
And I’ve got dreams that will come true,
And I’ve got some that won’t.
Most the time I just walk the line- wherever it goes.
‘Cuz you can’t hang yourself if you ain’t got enough rope.”
-Christ Knight, “Enough Rope”
THANK YOU and a huge SHOUT OUT TO DaddyBlitz @The Daddy Blitz -Blogging about Family ,Religion and Politics for these lyrics for #FollowGreatFootsteps. I found myself in stitches (not of the hanging rope/ medical kind) at the humour.
These lyrics give you a sense of what the mood is like on DaddyBlitz’s blog.

Some valuable advice is ‘ walk the line’. I had to look that up because I haven’t done a whole lot of ‘walking the line’ in my life. 😀
1. To maintain a fragile balance between one extreme and another. i.e.: good and evil, sanity and insanity, decency and decadence, etc.
2. To behave; to abide by the the law and/or to abide by moral standards; to walk a straight path of decency by following the rules; to “walk the straight and narrow.”
The latter definition is that applied in the song “Walk the Line” by Johnny Cash.
1. I walk the line between good and evil.
2. I used to be a drunken thug, but now I walk the line
I do love Johnny Cash. So thanks for the this new term. I do a lot of that these days.
So what about DaddyBlitz ?
Last night I read his post and he was writing about his life being married and having 5 sons varying from the age of 4-14 years old.
He has this way of writing that made me think
I could be a a mother again… It’s not that hard, surely …
Then I realised this is DaddyBlitz!
A man of God,
An epic and comic parent,
Works in the Attorney trade.
He writes and he blogs about PARENTHOOD ,RELIGION and POLITICS.
He also Writes SHORT STORIES and POETRY too!
He even has a GUEST BOOK on his blog. It’s such a lovely touch. People leaving their thoughts in comments about his blog – check it out.
Then, I realised that this man in my eyes must be some Demi — God. So, the planning to have another sibling for my daughter went back into it’s little cave again.
He reminds me of my G
No G is not in the attorney trade
Nor does he have a growing hockey team
But he does have the same spirit.
I read his post on Advice to new parents -Relax and I thought if this is who springs to mind when I read this man’s Blog then I have nothing to fear when I get married -or maybe everything . Ha ha.
DaddyBlitz’s Blog deals with heavy themes but not in the way I expected . There is a lightness, a spring in his style of writing and humour is never far away.
I love to laugh so I am sold –
I follow this dudes blog.
I’ve ‘walked the line’ for a few years now and I never thought this would come out but I love the security I feel. I love the feeling of contentment I have in me and I love the direction my path is on.
I will always be a rebellious spirit is some form but I realise I can do this in way that doesn’t damage me and the ones around me.
When I was in the thick of all the crap I went through a few years ago. I spent a lot of time with my legal team. They kept me going.
The first solicitor I met was when I was when I woke up in a cell and didn’t know why.
It was all around the issues with my daughter and that night.
I didn’t want an attorney because I didn’t know that the charges brought against me was assault. The police insisted I have some form of legal representation with me.
I met S – the solicitor.
We went into a room to chat. I told him as much as I could remember.
I didn’t know yet that all the tests had come back on the assault allegation.
S started to tell me a story it went like this
“Did you know last week I went to played in a baseball match in Manchester and it was a perfect day, the sun the was shining, I saw this ball coming for me and I whacked this ball so high – everyone scrambled for it. The thing is I don’t remember running each base.”
I was like.
okay…. the thought never occurred to me that baseball is an American sport and we were in the U.K. and I thought what a cool story – thanks for telling me.
He then came out with the words :
“Do you want to know why I can’t remember?“
I obviously wanted to know and I nodded my head.
” Because it didn’t happen”
I choked up.
Just because my loose cannon ball ex made the allegation I shook my child there was no evidence and it didn’t happen. It was a lie.
Yeah, so thank you for this and for engaging with my #FollowGreatFootsteps challenge I came up with.
Solid advice to live by .
