To my son Colin:
I hope you’re never afraid to be different and embrace what makes you special.
I hope that you won’t judge unnecessarily and appreciate your privilege. I hope you are blessed with self-awareness and empathy.
I hope you learn from your mom what a strong woman looks like. I hope you surround yourself with strong women and learn from them how to be a better man.
I hope you’re not embarrassed to dance. I hope you’re never afraid to cry. I hope you wear your heart on your sleeve and love generously, whatever form that love takes. I hope you never stop trying to make people smile.
I hope you like frisbee, and concerts, and Villanova basketball. I hope you get excited for new Brettgammon games.
I hope you are inspired by music. I hope you experience that feeling of a chill running down your spine when you hear a special artist for the first time. I hope you get a chance to see Porter Robinson perform live.
I hope you dream big and strive to be extraordinary. I hope you push yourself, even when it hurts (especially when it hurts) for what you believe in. I hope you leave a legacy you are proud of.
I hope you forgive me my faults and learn to complement them. I hope you know I will sometimes get things wrong but I always try my best. I hope you know that you’ll always be my priority, even if it feels like you aren’t. I hope that I’ll always be yours.
I hope I can become the father you deserve.
I know I will give it everything I’ve got.
I love you.
Welcome! My name is Brett Snyder and I am the owner of Knucklepuck, a digital marketing agency based outside Washington D.C.
When I'm not studying and practicing SEO, you can find me hanging out with our dogs Lemon and Hippo, going to concerts, catching up with friends, exploring new hobbies, or spending time with my son Colin.
All the congratulations in the world Brett! Perfect post. I hope you all have a wild, fun, fulfilling ride.
