Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I wish I could talk to my dad more but those days will be here shortly. I know my kids wish the same and again those days will be here shortly as well. Hopefully I get to talk to my kids today. I pray I talk to them!! I keep my kids and my parents and family and friends in my prayers along with humanity. This life that we are living is nothing but a test. The choices we make will be to our advantage or disadvantage when its all said and done. I owe it to my children to become a better person for them and those around me. I have to make decisions that will put me in a position to be a better dad to my kids. I only dream of the day when I’ll be able to have my kids with me and we are laughing and having a good time. On this Father’s Day it will be bittersweet because deep down I know I won’t be able to talk to my kids but I know who I am. I know who I’m becoming. I know I’m not the person I was 6 years ago. I know I’m someone my kids will be proud of. I know I’m someone they can look up to. I know that our tears over the past years wasn’t in vain. My time away from my kids wasn’t for nothing. I’ll never abandon my kids or live life as if I don’t have any responsibility to my kids. Everyday I wake up I wish I was with my kids. I wish I could make them breakfast and start the day with them. I wish I could answer their questions, protect, and guide them. They are great kids and I miss them more and more everyday. They have grown so much and I just can’t wait to be back in their lives fulltime!!! So this day isn’t for me its for my kids and I’m dedicating every Father’s Day to them going forward!! I love and miss y’all LaNiyah, LaNycee and DaVon Jr.!!!! Behave yourselves and stay strong for me!!! See you sooner than later!!!
