so you may have noticed a new re-occuring theme on this blog. it's a segment i have going called "for the boys". the main purpose: to make sure my boys know what i think about life. so if anything ever happens to me they will still learn the life lessons i always intended them to. i think it's a result of a near death experience i had. i am ever aware of the fact that life is short & precious. i understand how quickly it can be snatched away. and should that ever happen to me i want to be prepared. i want to know that i didn't leave my sons completely empty handed. most of all, i want them to know how much i love them & how much thought i put into parenting. because, when it's all said & done, there lives are my legacy. what they do & don't do will be all that mattered about who i was.
