My Son’s Day

My third son is 168 months old today. That is 5113 days or 730 weeks plus 3 days for leap years. He was born my pudgy little boy who liked to suck on his fingers and has turned into my tall, skinny teenage boy. He is my Coda, Cuda, Cuda-Bug and Dakotay. He is my buddy and Mini-Me (same chin and all). Today I want you to know a few things:

1. I am proud of the man you are becoming. I pray you stay strong in your faith. I hope you are always my independent little boy who make his own decisions in his own time.

2. Mom and Dad are your biggest fans. We only want the best for you. We only see the good. We want you to succeed in all you do.

3. Keep Your Faith (even when you friends have none). Be the influence and not the influenced. I know that is hard at your age, but try to be a man of faith as you get older. Your God will never leave you or forsake you, but don’t do those things to Him.

4. Your Brothers Love You, that is why they pick on you. Being ignored is worse than being the brunt of their jokes. Your brothers may seem like enemies at times but I promise you they will stand by your side long after your friends have gone.

5. Enjoy Each Moment. Enjoy today. Enjoy each day God gives you on this earth with family, friends and people who care about you. You will not understand this until you reach midlife and probably not live it out until you are a senior citizen. But if you can learn to do this now you life will be full of rich memories that are worth more than gold.

I love you my son. I hope you have a wonderful day. May God bless you with many more and us with many more together.
