"I love you"
I must admit I didn't know the true depth of that sentiment "I Love You" until I held my son in my arms on that first day.
Until then, I cared for others and held a noble understanding of the duty to give of myself and even my life if need-be for those I cared about.
But nothing truly prepared me for the wave of love that began filling chambers in my heart and soul that I previously knew nothing about.
This new love unraveled my sense of self, remolding me to become so much more.
Replacing the previously mentioned word "Father" (that was always just a meaningless and an empty word to me before)
Suddenly the word "Father" became filled with who I was and always will be.
And that new type of love forged a whole new level of the meaning Fatherly duty and selfless love in-which I embraced my new charge with renewed life purpose,
using every ounce of wisdom, strength, and patience I could gather.
The side effects of trying to be a good father and positive honorable influence were also taking actions to be a better man.
Thank you Son,
For aspiring me to be a better man.
