The most important mark I will leave on this world is my son. Lincoln turned 10 years old. (Where has the decade gone?) The last 10 years have been the best of my life – not the easiest – but, by far, the best! In the past 10 years, I’ve cried more tears than the entirety of my life before – most of them tears of joy. 😭 Tears erupting from a heart overwhelmed with the love of a son. ❤️
One of the best parts of being a dad is receiving that love. That love that flows so freely – purely – from your child. Unknowingly, his love for me has healed me in a hundred ways. I wasn’t looking for this, but it did and it does…heal me. The way he looks to me and looks up to me does things to me – touches my soul, my father’s heart. It’s indescribable.
Lincoln embodies many of the same personality traits as my wife, Casey. She is my best friend and, like his Mom, it’s so easy to love him. He has my heart. He has my attention. He is my son, in whom I am so proud.
Here’s to you, Lincoln, you’ve overcome so much in your first 10 years. I can’t wait to be by your side -cheering you on – for the next! 🎉 🏆
The most important mark I will leave on this world is my son. The mark my son has left on me, has already changed mine. 🌎
