I stand with you today and always. My promise unchanged. I will support you in any way I can. Sometimes that will mean just listening, contributing resources, providing encouragement or creating connections. But at all times it will mean never becoming a dream killer. I owe you that as much as I owe you food, shelter, bear hugs, wet kisses, and occasional scolding.
So dream on. Carry on with your big dreams as they unfold before you in full color. Dream big! Aim high! And make me one promise in return. Promise me, you will never give up on your dreams. That you will never kill those dreams you dreamed once upon a time while staring into yonder way.
To My Son
“There is more to a boy than what his mother sees. There is more to a boy than what his father dreams. Inside every boy lies a heart that beats. And sometimes it screams, refusing to take defeat. And sometimes his father's dreams aren't big enough, and sometimes his mother's vision isn't long enough. And sometimes the boy has to dream his own dreams and break through the clouds with his own sunbeams.”
