Often times I can’t find the perfect words to let you know how much I love you! It seems impossible to write how proud I am of you and the life you are creating!
I watched you walk through the doors of school this morning and I couldn’t help but smile with pride. You are a witty, handsome, intelligent young man. Daily I am reminded how much I love you. Each story you write, each game you explain, each silly commentary of life you make are reminders of how clever you really are. Sometimes I feel like you are growing up too quickly, but watching you evolve into a man has been one of the greatest journey’s of my life. When I hear you speak of mature subjects with an understanding of their concepts I’m in awe! When I find you investigating the “truth” of information I am stunned by your fortitude to question everything.
I want you to know that you are so special to me. As the years pass and you continue on your journey of self discovery I am amazed by you! I want to hug you and never let you go!
But most of all Wyatt, I want you to know that I love you for YOU! I hold no expectations of whom or what you should be. I only expect that you stay true to yourself. Never allow someone else’s idea of what you should be interfere with your journey of discovering yourself. I truly mean it when I tell you; I will ALWAYS love you, no matter how your life turns out.
Isn’t it exciting to figure yourself out? Isn’t it exciting that you have boarded the ship of life and you get to be the captain of that ship?
Of course I know you and I will weather rough waters on occasion, but Wyatt, those will be the moments that will help define our friendship. Even the choppy seas teach us how to be better captains. I will be right next to you, never abandoning ship. I will ALWAYS be right next to you, loving you and being proud of who you are.
