    The nuturing of a seed it is the most complicated
    task i know. I can water it,love it embrace it,
    hold it, stare at it, and imagine what it will be
    like when it is grown. However i will never know. I
    find myself second and third guessing things like
    "Am i doing a good job" , or do I yell to much.
    Can they tell that I'am full of bullXXXX
    and figuring it out as i go . Yeah it is hard to love
    like this unconditionally. The heart swells and becomes
    to dominate my body with the fear of them not being
    here. I love my seeds to death, I will walk through fire,
    fight mike tyson. Climb the highest skyscraper whatever
    it takes just to ensure thier safety. Some of our young
    brothers state that they will "ride or die" for this or that.
    Well i will ride or die for my seeds!!!

    being a parent myself I can relate to this soul-deep.

    Sadly, I say, in this day in age with some many fatherless
    children just being there is a great start. I enjoyed this
    because between the lines, I read your seeds are blessed
    to have a father so concerned for their well-being.

    lovely piece

    If it's true what they say about the fruit not falling far from the tree, ...then count your blessings...ten-fold.
    sometimes we yell,
    we fall a nickel short on patience,
    at times, big on punishment
    and the list goes on...
    but...
    It all falls under the headlines of
    that sweet
    ~Unconditional~ love!
    You have a right to smile, you got that Brother.
