Nothing beats the feeling of being a father. Having some precious one on one time with my son was priceless. His personality is unique and I see our mutual similarities in character. Love for a child is a deep bond that nothing compares to.
I truly appreciate his mother for being so loving as well. She is doing a great job raising him and I’m glad that we remain friends.
The most heartfelt moment this past weekend was when I asked him what he wanted to do when he grows up…his response, “To be like you dad.” That really stopped me in my tracks. It caught me by surprise that he said that. I don’t see myself any different than any other human being, but in my son’s eyes I’m a hero. I feel there is so much more that I’m working towards in my life and I’m nowhere close to where I want to be. To hear that really made me feel like someone special in my son’s life. Amazing!
