It’s all about YOU!
To My Son, Justin, With Love!
You deserved it! You got what was coming to you! It’s probably been in the works for a long time because you set it up! You did! Don’t try to squirm out of it! The reason it happened is because of the person you are. You are so non-assuming. How often are you willing to stand back, to watch, to listen, and simply to take in every detail in the world around you without getting in the way? It happens more often than not. That’s why you’re so good at what you do.
Being the center of attention has never been a necessity for you. Yet, ironically, that’s likely the reason why, all of a sudden, you have become a focal point. You possess character. You’re genuine, real. It’s why, when you connect with someone, when someone becomes your friend or confidant, it is forever. It’s your innate sense of loyalty that is so appealing.
So, yes! You deserved it! Employee of the Year for the Novato Police Department is no small accomplishment. Your family is so proud of you. All of us are beaming with joy! I hope at some point, even if you don’t let anyone else know, that you too will wallow a bit in your success. Your expertise, talents, sense of responsibility, and capacity for doing what is right are yours alone. Be proud. It’s time.
I love you, Justin.
