What Did You Do Today?

To my son Tommy,

You were recently asked what you did today and this week so far. You gave a five minute recap that went something like this...

Talked to parrot and pirate ship and alligators and angry bird and dragon and saw the gorilla, giraffe, and elephant. Rode helicopter and train and motorcycle and balloon and jeep. Went to beach and got toys and played with Gabe and Ryan.

Rest is not on the schedule for this vacation and you go and go and go until you crash. Then everything starts anew and you immediately wake up thinking and talking about doing all the things you did yesterday again and again. I hope you attack your everyday life with this eagerness and excitement. It is easy to look forward to sun and waves and boardwalks and rides. But if you can keep this up with everything else, your success in life will be nearly assured.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
