About Me

Dear Atlas,

It’s me, your Dad.

When you get older, you’ll recognize an hourglass on my right arm. Someday you’ll be old enough to understand the story, and the legacy, behind it.

As you get older, you’ll realize you are a part of that legacy. It’s a legacy that includes the story of your parents: who they were before they met and who they became after.

I’m watching an hourglass right now, Atlas. Each second that passes delivers a small trickle of sand. It reminds me a lot of the life we have. Some moments, I feel like I’m trying to push the sand through the hole to make it go faster. Other times, I’m grasping at grains of sand that are slipping through my fingers.

That’s how I know I have a wonderful life, Atlas: I see the mix of times I wish could go faster paired with moments I don’t want to let go of. I’m right there in the middle, with your Mom—and with you.

I’m really thankful for you, Atlas. I want you to know that. I’m thankful because you’ve brought welcome change into my life. Somehow it makes things more real, knowing you’re on the way.

I take things more seriously now because I see that everything has a response. Whether that’s an action, word, or moment, the things we do matter.

I see the hourglass draining, and I’m filled with gratitude because I know the moments I’ve lived up until this point have been wonderful. And there are so many new moments of wonder, joy, laughter, and love ahead now that you’re on the horizon.

I can’t wait to see you and dance with you in the mornings.
