My "Attitude of Gratitude"

It's 11 35pm.
At the moment I am lying in bed with a glass of red wine.
I can not stop thinking about of how incredibly fast the last 5 years have flown by!
Truly amazing...

Exactly 5 years ago tonight (March 4th 2004), I was lying in bed with my girlfriend at the time. Little did we know that she was just hours away from giving birth to our first child.

I remember when she went into labour in the middle of the was like a scene from a movie: packing the bag, rushing out of the house and into the car.
I was driving as fast and careful as I could to the hospital. It was dark, snowing & freezing (Winnipeg in the winter is not the most exotic location in the world).

Then, a few hours later (9 to be exact) a little angel was born and brought into our world.

Ethan Ashton Carlin

It was such a surreal, unforgetable experience!

I remember holding him for the first time.
Now, THAT is love at first sight! :)

So here I am now 5 years later.

I have changed the diapers, givin the baby baths, and seen him go from horizontal crawling to vertical walking.

What a marvoluous miricle!

Now he tells me all about his favoriate super heros (Spiderman & Batman) and which dinasours are the best fighters and why Transformers are the coolest...incredible!

FYI: My dad just turned 67, I am 28, and my son is 5 tomorrow.

The 3 generations of Carlin men.

I am so greatful to be in 'the middle' of 2 incredible individuals:
Paul & Ethan Carlin.

I respect, admire and love you both more than words can describe.

So the tip is for all the fathers and all the sons:
Carpe Diem (Seize the Day)

Happy Birthday Son!

I am so blessed & greatful that you chose me to be your daddy & thanks dad for showing me how to be a great father.
