Thank you for listening Glenn. I really don't have many friends that actually have a wife and kids nor care to how to treat them and give them emotional side of you that they most deserve. I have a real problem with putting my emotions out in the open for my family to see. I tell them I love them all the time but those are really just words. I would like to learn how to express my true feelings and show them physically that I deeply care and respect them unconditionally.
