No Advice for my Son

 Now that my son received his diploma, I have a boatload of advice I’d like to pass along before he ventures out on his own.

I’d like to, but, I won’t. He will succeed, fail and learn just fine on his own.

Instead of advice, I am giving him the same assurance my dad gave me:

Robbie –

There is nothing you could ever do to make me love you more.
There is nothing you could ever do to make me love you less.

I just plain love you. Always have, always will.

My Confirmation verses still ring true to the core: “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39


  1. You’re the man, I love this.

  2. Thanks, Brady, sure nice of you. Hope I didn’t give you too much advice on your way out. If so, praying for a speedy recovery! 🙂

  3. Brent, I checked out your Leaderbird as soon as I hung up the phone with you. And now I have one more thing on my to-do list….check out your page every day! I honestly love it:) (And I also love Real Simple!) Thanks! Suzy

  4. Aw, thanks, Suzy! You are so kind. May just need to get you a leaderbird mug for that sweet comment and encouragement. 🙂 So glad you decided to swoop in, enjoy the rest of your day and weekend!
