You Are The Captain’s of Your Ships

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

To the most important three men in my life:

I don’t have much time to ponder but I wanted to leave you with a positive thought for today.  I believe Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best:  “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.  

Remember you are the captains of your ships.  They only dock where you want them to land.  However, should a storm blow you off course remember you are the captains of your ships.  Steer yourselves to safety and make the necessary repairs to your souls.  But as sons born to a teen mom that refused to give up hope, I implore you to continue on your life journey in search of adventures, as brotherly love become the beacon among the three of you.  Because once again, each of you are the captains of your ships and they land only where you want them to anchor.

Love,

Mom
