The Introduction

Dear reader,

Life threw many obstacles my way that may have derailed some people; however, I found a purpose, after years of bad decisions and heartache, which led me to the path of genuine happiness. I remain on that path today!


I invite you to come with me as I reflect on my journey called life! From a shy boy raised in rural Louisiana to living the fast life in sunny Southern California, this book will honestly portray the good times and the bad that led to me ending up a decent old man deep in the heart of Texas.


While I can't go back and change many of my decisions, there is one I would never change! I want to share that truly life-saving decision with you. We all need hope and this book is a testament to that very quality! I hope you enjoy my journey and benefit from the lessons I learned. You too may say "If I Had Only Known."
