Mistakes can bring happiness!

I have been thinking a lot about my past lately. I have made a lot of mistakes in my life but who hasn't? The more I think of all my mistakes, the more I am grateful for them. My mistakes are what is partly made me who I am today. I think mistakes can either make you a better person, or doom you, but it is always our decision on what way they will take us. One of my biggest mistakes has given me one of the biggest blessings. I had a child with someone that I didn't know very well and lets say it was a living hell. I became a full time single daddy, with a full time job. My son's mom rather run around and fill her needs, then fill my son's needs. So when my son was 9 months old we split up and I was left being a single full time daddy. Over the last 6 years my son has taught me so much. He has taught me to love deeper, to be very patient, he showed me that small things can bring great happiness. He gave me purpose to be a better person, be a harder worker and just enjoy life more. With all the hell that his mom has put me through, I wouldn't change it. I would live that last 6 years over a 1000 times for my son. He is one of my greatest passions and I love him so much.

Having a child is a no big mistake. Its a gift. What can be a great a mistake is losing the chance of being a good father because not everyone is given that chance.

I was a mistake for me to have a child with the wrong person, I don't think my son is a mistake, just the situation I have put him and myself in of being single father and him with out a loving mother. He is a blessing.

Wow, you sound like a great dad to your son and I am sure you make your mom proud of how turned out. It is not easy to admit mistakes, but like you said some mistakes can make us better people for having to go through it. I wish you lots of luck in whatever comes next for you and your son.

He is adorable. He was not a mistake just a pleasant surprise gift from an unpleasant situation.
