Oliver’s Path

“Never be afraid to tread the path alone. Know which is your path and follow it wherever it may lead you; do not feel you have to follow in someone else’s footsteps.” #EileenCaddy #FatherAndSon #Oliver #Footprints

The relationship of a son and father can be both simple and complex. A son will always feel a close bond with his father, yet at times will want to show his dad how he has grown and the strength and knowledge he has gained, thus making the relationship more competitive.

I want Oliver to experience the world through his eyes… his unique perspective and joyful smile will bring happiness to everyone he meets. I want him to make mistakes and learn from them. I also want to protect him and keep him safe.

… but most of all… I want him to forge his own path, he doesn’t need to follow in my footsteps or try to “be like dad.” Oliver needs to be Oliver and if does just that… he’ll be fine!
