A Dad’s Letter To His Son -
My husband is a very sentimental person. He has always been the kind of dad who hugs a lot. My son is the same kind of guy. He says I love you to me when he walks through a room. Every time I get a text from him, he says I love you, Mom.
A few days ago, my husband wrote a letter to our son. Our son graduated high school and will be leaving for college in less than two months. My husband brought the letter to me and asked me to type it for him. He wanted to frame it and give it to our son.
I typed it and helped him to frame it in a scrapbook frame and backed it with a scrapbooking paper. We put the original in his handwriting in the back of the frame so our son would always have the letter in his dad’s handwriting.
Our son is out of town with friends for a few days. My husband bought a body pillow with our son’s college logo on it. He put the pillow our son’s bed and propped the frame up on it. He wants him to find it and read it without anyone around. Talk about a loving, caring father, he is one!
Here is the letter:
Nothing I have ever done has given me more joy and rewards than being a father to you! The day I found out you were going to be born was the happiest and scariest moment of my life. Up to this point, I only worried about me and now I had to start thinking about you too. As you know, I never knew my dad and now I had to be one. No manual is given on how to raise a child, but I was going to do everything I could for you. I think I have done almost everything possible for you, even to a fault at times, but I don’t believe I would change a thing.
I have always been tight with money, because I grew up without very much. Adam, with you, I have never considered cutting back. The wonderful thing is, you’ve never wanted very much. I know at times I demand and expect a lot from you, but I only want you to be the best person you can. I couldn’t love or care about anyone more than I do you! You make me so very proud and grateful to God that he allowed me to be your “Dad”. I think your mom is amazing and is one of the most patient persons I have ever known. I worried about her being older and pregnant. I hope you appreciate everything she has done for you – she loves you so very much! After all these years, I know your mother feels the same way I do, you are a blessing to us.
I have always pushed you in sports, but I believe sports are a life lesson. I have enjoyed watching your sports, sometimes I didn’t think you gave your best, but I was so proud of you! In school, you have worked hard and you have been rewarded with all the honors at the end of high school. Again, I’m so very proud of you in school. I notice how you interact with your friends and what a great young man you are!
There are so many things I could write about you, but I just want you to never ever doubt how much joy you have given me. You are a priority over all the demands that life throws at us, you are the most important investment I have ever made in my life. I look forward to you moving on to college to find out where your life journey will lead. Please don’t forget why you wanted to go to college and get the most out of it. You can be the first person in my family to graduate from college. Don’t worry your mom and I will support you as much as you need us to. Please know everything you do is important to me.
In closing, I Love You, Adam, and I am so proud of the man you have become and being your Dad. Go chase your dreams and never let anyone say you can’t achieve what you set your mind to. Find your passion, keep looking and searching, never stop. I am so excited for I.U. and whatever future endeavors you do, my son!
“I love you with all my heart!”
Where ever you are in life, you can come home. I will be here as long as God allows me. You will be my son forever!
Crying is a natural emotional response to feelings. We all do it – you know me, one of the biggest of all time, especially now!
