This picture was taken on Saturday the 14th of November. I was doing what I love most. I was spending time with people I love and having fun in the wild outdoors. At this time, I knew my wife was pregnant with our beautiful baby with a due date of Decwmber 7th, 2015.
My mind was filled with things like “how do I install that car seat?”, “I should put together that swing soon”, “I wonder if it’s going to be a boy or a girl”. I had no idea what was about to happen…..
On November 17, 2015 our world would change for the better because of a baby boy entering into this world and into our loving arms. Wesley Arnett Thompson, 8lbs and 21 inches presented himself to us and my life is forever changed. I still want to fish, hunt, hike and be outside but now I want my best new friend to be with me. I know it will be a while but I can’t help to think of the future and how much brighter it will be with both him and Tracy in my life.
Westley has already watched the Broncos beat the Bears on my lap, scared to death every time I yelled at the TV with excitement on every great play.
I always wanted a great life for Tracy and I but looking at Wesley I would sacrifice all my dreams for him to have his dreams come true. There’s just something about being a dad that changes your heart and soul.
I don’t let the little things bother me near as much. I see other people as kids even if they are old. I see their parents hoping the same for them and now, more than ever, I want to help them reach there goals more than I want to reach mine.
What can you do today, tomorrow, or the next day to help someone instead of creating a road block for them? I guarantee more success for you and your loved ones if you care just as much for someone else’s dreams as much as yours.
My heart is forever changed with my boy Wesley being born and knowing how much I want his dreams to come true by people loving him like I do… that way, doors will always open for him.
Treat others the way you would want to be treated. Let’s help this future generation be a generation of kids that are so loved and nourished from good role models they don’t have a chance of not succeeding.
With lots of love comes hope and with lots of hope comes joy and with lots of joy comes happiness for yourself and others.
Thank you lord for blessing my wife and I with this little miracle. We promise to show him unconditional love throughout his days on this earth. We love you, God with all of our hearts and souls and can’t thank you enough for our baby boy, friends, families, and complete strangers we get to love on everyday.
