10 things I want you to know...

My beautiful, sweet, amazing son; (yes, I call you beautiful. Because you ARE the most beautiful thing in the universe to me!) some things I want to make sure you know and understand...

You have the most amazing Dad in the world. He loves you (and mommy) unconditionally and will always be there for you when you need him.

Daddy is a Soldier in the United States Army. There will be times that he can't be home with us, maybe even for a year or more. Having to leave us behind for that time is the hardest thing for him to do. But the job he is doing, helps give us all the freedoms we have as Americans. Whether he is far away or sitting next to you, he loves you with all that he is. Please remember that and always be proud of him, even when it hurts to see him go.

You are the BEST thing that has ever happened to me. The moment I held you in my arms for the first time, I knew my heart was yours forever.

I will always be here for you when you need me. Whether you've scraped your knee, fallen off your bike, have a belly ache, made a mess, had trouble in school, met your first girlfriend, gotten married, had children...As long as I am alive, I will always listen and do everything I can to help you.

School can be tough. Other kids can be tough. Always keep an open mind and a strong heart. Don't be a bully. Don't let some kid bully you. Stand up for yourself when you need to. Keep your mouth shut when you need to. Be nice to other kids who tend to look down when they walk; you may be the one person that will brighten their day.

Pay attention! In school, in a vehicle, on the bus, to Mom and Dad. Be serious when you need to be and ask questions if you do not know the answer.

Work hard. Don't be lazy. Be courteous. Say please and thank you. Hold the door for the person walking in behind you. Open doors for ladies.

You need to stop growing. Just yesterday, you were a little bitty thing that fit perfectly in the nook of my arm. I can only imagine what life will be like once you're grown and stand taller than me. Sheesh.

HAVE FUN. Laugh often. Smile often. Be silly.

Enjoy the ride. Life is going to be ups and downs, side to side's, and everything in between. Things may not always go as you plan, but those are the moments that mold you into who you will become. Bumps in the road make you stronger. Everything happens for a reason, whether you understand it or not. Trust me on this one.

I love you, my boy. There is no other love like the love for your child. I know you will understand that one day.

Love Always and Forever,
