Make sure that your goals will have a positive impact on you and those around you, and that you don't kill yourself in the process of trying to reach them.
I have loved seeing Sam grow beyond his fears and I don't ever want to take time moments with him for granted. I know that I am getting prime opportunities to help lay a solid foundation on so many things like what it really means to be a man, responsibility, and how to have fun and safe adventures.
I am seeing one overarching theme popping up more and more: Find the needs around you and meet them.
My wife did a fantastic job planning our daughters party and getting everything together with the help of some of our amazing family and friends.
I also know that as she turns one... boys are right around the corner. So... dad's, hunters, marksman, NRA members, what kind of gun should I get?
I always knew it was important for me to pour into my kids, but I never thought the father son ice-cream outings could eventually be so impactful.
It's amazing how the smallest of things, like the light of a firefly, can bring you back over 20 years.
This race towards fatherhood is not a 5k, half marathon, or even an ultra-marathon. This race towards fatherhood is a lifetime of ups and downs, hard work, and hopefully a great start to the legacy that God desires for us to leave on.
Our morning routine may have switched a little bit, but for now, it is Mickey Mouse club house pancakes for Sam, and something other than oatmeal and cereal for Lindsay and Emma to eat. #DadLifeWin
I am realizing that after seven years, I still don't know everything about my wife.
