A Birthday Wish to My Son

September 20th, 2012

Happy Birthday Baby Boy,

You may not notice it, but today is special.  Exactly one year ago, you came into my life and changed everything for the better.

When you first opened your eyes, I was the first person you met. I was completely in awe (and I still am).  When I first held you in my arms, I told you that you were meant for big things and going to change this world.  I know deep down in my heart this is true; you prove it to me every day.

Watching you grow over the past year has been such a joy.  You've reminded me how to look at life through fresh eyes, not to underestimate you, and that it's important to always remain a child at heart.  It's like every interaction we have is a life lesson for the both of us. 

Every day I try my hardest to be the best role model for you.  I want to teach you to be loving, caring, and understanding.  I want you to dream as high as you can possibly imagine and never give up on your dreams, no matter what.  You inspire me to be a better person every day.

From now on and for the rest of your life, I want you to know that I wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and peace.  I'm grateful that you are in my life.  I'm blessed beyond words.


Sincerely,

Dad
