Ben is 2. It’s hard to see past the noise, messes, babble, and sweetness at times. But this season will pass. My boy will grow up. He’ll become taller and stronger and more confident. He’ll find passions and he’ll make friends. He’ll learn about the world around him and the God our family chooses to serve.
If he becomes patient and kind like his daddy, I’ll be a happy momma. If he loves and serves people like his daddy, the world will be a better place. If he chooses what is right like his daddy, his community will be grateful. If he encourages his wife to be a better version of herself like his daddy does me, his family will thrive.
My boy, embrace the example your daddy is because there really isn’t a better man to want to be like.
