Hero for a Day

Hero Dad

So, we’re on this insane road trip when my wife texts me a message. I’m sitting in the backseat of the car and zoning out with my earbuds. It was this image, and the words, “His words. Not mine.”

All the onions. All the dust in my eyes.

He gave me a gift I’ve wanted my entire life, and I’m on the road. Away from home. Missing him like crazy.

    I’ll never forget the first time I heard my son say this about me. Of course I always wanted this, but I never let him know that. When it came out, I was floored. Humbled and proud and feeling like I could take Superman in a street fight, I hugged him tightly and said, “I love you. I hope I can be your hero forever.”
