A Few promises

Dear Son,

As I lied next to you tonight as you drifted off to sleep, and I found myself holding your hand as we were side by side, I had some thoughts.

I promise to never to tell you to “man up” (or something of the like) when you’re feeling weak.

I promise to try to never invalidate your feelings when you’re scared or upset.

I promise to never make you feel like you’re too old to lean on me or hold my hand when you need.

I promise to always try to make you feel as safe as I can.

I love you,

Dad
