But then, something wonderful happens. Your 7 year old son approaches you with a card he made at school. On the back of the card, he wrote:
You love me. You take care of me. You are very, very funny. You help me lots, too. You are very fun. You teach me things I don't know yet. You taught me things like God when I was 4 or 5 years old. You play with me and you read the Bible to me.
I know I fail. I fail every day. I am an imperfect person in an imperfect world, just trying to do the best I can with what I've got. This, though. This shows me that I have done one thing very, very right.
I love you, Ethan. Thank you for being the candlelight that shines, pushing out all of the darkness.
