Letters to my son….2 of many.

There will come time when all of this will make sense, a time when the hurt of the change will be just painful blur of your past. You need to know one thing son….. I’m sorry. I’m sorry that things turned out the way they did wiTh your mom and I.
Things got out of control. It for me was a whirl wind in slow motion. To this day I still don’t know how all this happened to our family. As time goes by in your life I hope you have fun, fall in love, travel, watch sunsets and climb mountains of all kinds. But most of all know that I love you more than life itself.

You are a strong kindhearted young man and you always have been.Son I’m so proud of you and the person you’ve grown to be. In this life you will meet all kinds of people. Please learn to give freely with no expectations Of return and you’ll be fine. Most people will take what they need then go, a few people in your life will take what they need then give you back 10x what they took, those people son. They are your true friends. The ones that give without being asked and receive without asking. Those are the people that will see you through this life,cherish them.

At points in time during this life you may find yourself without answers. That’s okay, that’s what life is about, trust that you’ve gathered enough information in life to solve the puzzle, for there are no real hardships in life just puzzles that you’ll need to figure out along the way. Stay true to your pure heart and you’ll survive anything. Remember to listen to those who know more than you and disregard those who don’t. Learn from the mistakes of many and follow in the footsteps a few. Learn to create your own path and it will lead you to happines. Learn to accept that some things in life you’ll never be able to control and that’s okay. It’s the universe doing its thing and sometimes it’s good to hitch a ride to the next station in life and sometimes it’s best to walk and take it slow. You’ll know when that it is my son, just look inside yourself for the answer, you’re heart will guide you.

Please remember to be kind to yourself and those around you for when life gets hard it will those people that cherish and protect your heart the most. Be firm in conviction and gentle in touch. Learn of to field yourself but never cause harm and lastly today know that I love you, it’s been the biggest test of my life to have to be away from you. Soon you’ll be 18 and I can show you the world as I’ve seen it so you may discover for yourself.

For all of my day and all that come after.
I love you with my whole heart son.

    • Thank you B. Its important to me he know how much hes loved. He’s a teen know and doesnt appreciate this kind of stuff now as much as he will when im gone. End of the school years coming are you soooo excited ?


  1. Beautiful letter, what a wise thing to do, he will need this the world is a crazy place. I can remember my Mom saying I’m so concerned for your kids growing up in a world like this, her Mom told her the same thing. I could say the same thing but I think I might say something like this, the world is crazy and yes I’m concerned for the future but we have the power to change things. One little act makes a difference!

    • I agree completely. There was a time in my life when i thought there was nothing left. My world as knew had begone to peel away and fall apart. Sadly the people i needed to be strong with me, couldnt so i had to make very hard choices. I sat on morning on wall built buy the Romans in a the village of Great Huckslow (somewhere in Derbyshire) i sat on that wall and balled like a childs first cry and watched the sunrise then I realized that im here to do good and teach,love,laugh and live this life to its fullest and not so much for me but for those around me. Thousands of men,women and children eho came before me watched the sunrise from that wall. It was then i realized truly how vast our universe and the hopes,dreams and fears it is full if is.
      Since then my world has slowly rebuilt it self (myself) into a person hopefully my son and other sons my learn and grow from.

  2. Beautiful words B. You are a wise man. Love and let yourself be loved. Stay open but don’t keep negative in your life. I’m only just realising all these words and here you’re leaving them to your son. Giving him a worthy legacy. Thank you for letting us share them as well. He is loved.
