Not just a father but a Dad

I find myself lost in thought thinking about how proud I am of my 2 boys. This week I’ll be blogging about my 2 sons, Junaid and Bladen. They have recently started playing TeeBall in the under 10yr old division and yes Bladen only recently celebrated his 4th birthday.

TeeBall is a sport based on Baseball and is intended as an introduction for young players to develop baseball skills and have fun. The season kicked off 2weeks ago with a tournament where score was not kept and rules designed to maximize participation. Both of them had a great first game with Junaid hitting a homerun and Bladen believe it or not hitting a 3 bagger (ran to 3rd base). I thinks we have the next Babe  Ruth in the making…

It’s really good to see my boys having so much fun and more than that I’m a part of their lives now! When I think back about 2 years ago I was just the father of these boys but now I’m their Dad. I can’t believe there was a time I thought I was better off not having my beautiful boys in my life because of my drug addiction.

My life is so different now and I can’t imagine not having “my clan” around. I absolutely love spending time with my boys and being Daddy to them and I look forward to many new adventures together.

Joel 2: 25 thus says the Lord: “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locusts have eaten,”
