“Spend lots of time with your children! Have them near you day and night and love them. And let yourself be loved in those wonderful years that will never return!” – Leopold Schefer
to my dear children,
although life has greyed my hair and i am far from the boy of 24 who first became a dad, the love i have for you has only deepened with age. as i look back in time, remembering each of you from the moment of birth, i see my love for you was not wasted. you are all wonderful individuals, each a reflection of my heart.
i cannot say i have no regrets or that “i wish i could…” has never crossed my mind but my intentions were always good and i tried to do the best i could. i hope that no matter on what twisting road life will take you always remember i am there for you. please, don’t hesitate for a moment to say “dad, i need you”. seek me out. i’ll be there for you. i’ll try not to judge. i will always forgive. that’s what i do, i’m a dad.
i love you dearly,
