A Boy and a Sober Father

A boy is turning ten tomorrow and today he is all smiles. He thinks his father is funny and he enjoys laughing. He was 7 1/2 years old when his father stopped drinking. His father wasn’t around a lot when drinking, he was either passed out or just not there. When his father was around he stayed away from him, because his father was drunk, which was most of the time. He would stay in his room, stay over at a friends house or just stay close by his mom.
My oldest boy is turning 10 years old tomorrow and I would give anything to change the past, but all I can do is make him laugh and feel loved just for today.
