This morning, when my son woke up and after he told mom good morning, he sought me out. He had something to give me. And as he stepped down the hallway with purpose and authority I heard him call out to me.
“Daddy, I have a pwesent fow you.”
“What is it son?”
“It’s a hug and a kiss. I love you daddy.”
And with that he jumped into my arms and hugged me as big as his big boy arms could hug a dad of my size.
I’m certain he doesn’t know how much he touched my heart this morning, or how good of a day he gave me today. But hopefully I can share this with him so that he can look forward to those moments with his kids. I am a truly blessed father.
