You have become a great guy in spite of me sometimes. I mean, we are so much alike and you and I have both been reminded of that for good and bad reasons. I am pretty sure that you have heard, "You're just like your Dad" many times. Depending on how those words came out of their mouth, you might have wondered if that was a good thing. What I know is, You have made assets out of so many of those qualities when I wasn't as good at it. You do a really good job of playing the hand you are dealt. Our similarities just seem to look better on you.
You're quick to forgive. I know that doesn't always mean forgetting is going to happen, and I
We laugh a lot together! Whether it's playing video games together, or disc golf, or just hanging out, the moments are never dull. I love how you use humor to deflect sometimes as well through an uncomfortable situation. I appreciate the way that you keep things in perspective. You slip through awkwardness with a smile, and I hope that is a quality you will never lose. It has a way of making folks feel comfortable. You make me laugh. I genuinely enjoy being with you. I find that I feel proud when I watch you interact with folks when we are together. You make impressions on the hearts of people who know you. You have a gift for that. You're accepting of my girl and my friends, and I know they love being around you.
Ultimately, I want you to know that I am so proud to see how far you have come and I am glad to see the guy that God has made of you. I am excited to see what the future holds. Please know that as long as there is breath in my body you will always be a big deal to me. I will always have time for you.
Don't ever forget that I am here if you need me and I will always be thinking of you! I love you son.
