El Tocayo

My son turns 16 today. He's an incredible, loving, compassionate, thoughtful presence in the life of everyone he knows. He's named after my Dad. Their similarities are striking. Both have a gentle yet strong demeanor that exudes confidence. Both are people I look up to, people I want to be more like, and people who simply seem make the world around them a better place.

This small business venture I'm undertaking is greatly influenced by the values my father taught me, and the promise for the future my son represents. If I learned one thing from my Dad, it is what it takes to be an amazing father; be present, be exemplary, be a guiding force. Be stern, but be fair. Be a voice, but listen. Be the rock when there is sand all around. Be the joy when sadness comes.

Be more than a provider, be the provision. Don't just give what is necessary, be the necessity. Above all else, teach love.

I hope I can be everything to my son that my dad was to me. I miss you Dad. Happy Birthday, my son.
