Rules For My Sons
Maybe not rules, but more of a guideline?
After losing my father a couple years ago and then battling cancer (and dominating it) this past year, I’ve been more focused on my three sons.
Not just focused on spending time with them, because that has always been important to me. But focused on what I tell them, what they are learning from me, and what I am leaving them with.
What will my kids remember that I taught them?
What if I don’t have enough ‘time’ left to instill/teach them all the lessons I feel that they should know?
So, I started a list.
I will add/subtract to this list, but I figured I’d put this down ‘on paper’ as something that my sons can look back at someday. This is some of the advice I am giving, will give, and want to get through to my sons as they continue to grow and develop.
Again, not a complete list and it may change, but it being Father’s Day, a good time to put this draft out:
That’s all I got for now. Happy Father’s Day!

P.S. I figure I would also share this. My son James had to recite his morning mantra with his 1st grade class each day during the pandemic virtual school and I love it and it is so powerful –
