This is an exercise I am doing for a personal growth book I am reading. I'm to name 15 things about someone I admire most. It says to make a list and then publicly read it to the person. I'll read it to him when he gets home and I'll make sure there are people in the room besides him. I may read this list to him at his birthday party in December. All sorts of people went through my mind. I wanted to name many people. I admire lots of people. For personal reasons I am going to name my son, Holden, who will be seven in December. I may do this exercise a few times, if I get time.
3. Loves me unconditionally
4. Makes me feel special
7. Sense of humor
8. Sense of adventure
9. Loves nature
10. Helped me to grow and change after he was born
11. Knows how to stand his ground
13. Ability to put people at ease
14. His smile
15. His abundant energy
I love you, Holden! I'm so glad you're my son.
