To my Son


Be who you want to be. Be strong. Be fun, be sweet, be loving. 

Take long naps. Love Jesus. Save your money. Work hard. Play harder. Be like your daddy. Kiss your mama every day. Get a good education. Run through the sprinklers. Live happily. Don’t watch too much television. Read lots of books. Put sunscreen on your face. Follow your dream. 
Be nice to everyone. Don’t buy a fancy car. Live simply. Play sports. Hug your grandparent’s. Be brave. Be courageous. Be adventurous. Tell the truth. Be yourself. Dance. Sing. Play in the dirt. Lay in the grass. Go barefoot. 
Don’t drink alcohol until you’re 21. Seriously. Don’t.
Never forget that I love you more than anything in the this entire world.
