letters to my son: friendship

You at 8 months

My sweet Caleb,

I am not an expert on friendship by any means, but I’d like to think I’ve learned a few things from my years on this earth (and from my mistakes!).

Here’s what I hope you’ll remember about friends:

Your friends will be the biggest influence (besides your daddy and I) on your life. So…

  • Choose friends who are honest, have good values, and treat themselves and others with respect.
  • A good friend cares about what’s best for you and encourages that. A good friend doesn’t bring you down.
  • Be a good friend. Listen, laugh, encourage, and love!
  • Quality is more important than quantity
  • You are not alone. Your dad and I know some stuff. Talk to us.

I am so proud of you.

I love you,
