Daddy Look

To my son Tommy,

When I hear, "Daddy look!" I don't always see what you want me to focus on.  I am not talking about the typical blow off here that all parents are occasionally guilty of.  But still I may not be looking at the color selection on your crayon project.  That is not the actual beauty of the moment.  When I respond, "Cool!" or "That's great!" with honest enthusiasm, I see the smile on your face beaming with a pride that comes from accomplishment.  You may have stayed in the lines and did very well or even put out an original work of art worthy of a masterpiece showcase, but the most amazing and beautiful thing in front of me is you.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
