Blessed with a Wonderful Family

A couple of years after getting together with my darling Sharon, we got married. This happened the same year that we found Scientology. These two amazing events have meant our lives have never been the same again!

Scientology is a religion, but one based on an organised body of scientific research concerning life. We found it very helpful and have been Scientologists ever since. In fact, from the ages of 21-25 I was staff in our church in London, enjoying the fun and hard work of spreading the word about something that helped me so much.

At the age of 25 Sharon became pregnant with our first son, Victor. She soon showed the usual expanding of the stomach that comes with pregnancy.  Less usual was my own expanding stomach which appeared at the same time – which to this day I still haven’t gotten rid of!

I began experiencing the joys of fatherhood with Victor, who was a self-determined little thing, and in rapid succession we had two more boys Daren and Adam.

During this time writing rather slowed down as I focused on bringing in the money that our expanding family needed. I began a painting and decorating company called M. J. Kloss and I worked hard and it grew into the successful company it is today.

Being a father adds a whole new dimension to life. The love and responsibility are just so huge, and every decision and event multiply in meaning, with how will it affect my wife, my sons and so on. It is a joy and an obligation I could never have imagined.

Here is a poem which rather shows how I feel about my family…

Blessed

Blessed is the boy

Who loves the girl,

And is loved in kind

Through heaven and hell.

 

Blessed is the man

Who finds such joy,

In loving the woman

He met as a boy.

 

Blessed are the children

Whose parents are strong,

With help ploughing through

Life’s rights and wrongs.

 

Blessed is the husband

Who cares for his wife,

And receives in return

Her love, her life.

 

Blessed is the man

Who is part of a team,

Made of loving children

And the woman of his dreams.
