A LETTER TO CHASE

Chase,

Happy Birthday. You are now 5.

You are my hero. You have been my greatest teacher and mentor. I love being your sidekick.

You awoke something deep inside me the day we first met. Because of you now I see the world so much differently.

The direction of my life has changed in a way I could have never imagined. You rescued me from a dark place from which I had fallen, a place where I felt helpless and lonely.

How could I have resisted the unending love you so willingly gave me through those soft hugs and kisses during all the blissful moments that we shared together.

The “I love you Dad”s and every super hero moment anchored me. The medicine for my soul that I needed to reboot and find a purpose. You believed in me, until I could believe in myself….thank you for that!

Son, I want you to dream big and to know that you can do anything that you set your mind to.

There is lots of work yet to be done to improve our world and I worry every day for the future, about the many things that you don’t yet understand. But I have discovered hope in you and in others that are like you, the future leaders and champions that our world needs.

Though you may be young and small, there are many things that you can do to be the change that is needed. In this you are powerful beyond measure. You and those like you, will serve as a catalyst to soften our hearts and help us to remember who we are.

Remember to serve others. Be kind. Be Brave. Think outside the box and be creative. Act with integrity and honor and be the hero that I know you to be… from your lair [Kid Labs] or any other place from which you choose to spread your brilliance and light.

I am so proud of you. I think your story is amazing…someday soon we will have to share it.

Never stop chasing your superhero.

I Love You…this much! (Arms stretched out wider than you can ever imagine)

Let’s change the world together.

Dad
