Two Wealthy Men In A Park
By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse).
I had a great evening today I picked up my kids headed to the park and let them play. I sat on the bench feeling alive. I got to hear them laugh and it lit me up inside because these little happy kids are my pride.
These kids are what I have done with my time and I am proud to be able to say they are mine. I have dedicated my life to being a loving dad because my son is more likely to be one if that’s what he had. I am showing my daughter how a man loves a girl so she will expect the same when ‘a new one enters her world.
I am trying my best to play my part and I am practicing hard trying to master this art. I am trying to be the best dad I can and I am trying to die the best version of this man. I often meet older men that inspire me and show me I am just where I need to be.
I had a conversation with an older man in the park today as we sat on the water and watched our kids play. I said to him, sir this is the way he said he agreed with me; and then I heard him speak to his grandkids and I could see here was an example of the man I aspire to be. He was gentle, he was kind and he was in no rush he was happy to simply have the time.
We shared stories about life the entire time and I am thankful to have run into a soul like mine. That made me feel good today, meeting that man as we watched our kids play. I pray I reach the point that he is at, I pray I get to go to the parks with my grandkids and be called granddad.
Two Millionaires sat in the park and reaped the benefits of the most sound investment……. Family.
