Aww! “Your mum loves you very much” Daniel Ademinokan writes an emotional open letter to his 6-year old son

Aww, this is so cool, Daniel is starting to learn how to write ’emotional letters’ from bestie Stella Damasus.
Daniel Ademinokan and Doris Simon’s son – David turned six yesterday and he got a beautiful open letter from his dad.

In the letter, Daniel bared it all!

Read the letter below:
Dear David,
I want to start by wishing you a very, very happy birthday. It feels
just like yesterday when the doctor placed you in my arms. Its been 6
amazing, breath-taking and spectacular years. Wow! Dave, you truly
changed my life forever. I vividly remember the way you starred at me
from you crib wondering to yourself, “Who is this big black man starring
down at me?” and gave me the smile that melted my heart. You have given
me moments that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
On this very special day, I pray that God’s favor,
love, peace, mercy and grace will follow you every single day of your
life. You were created to change the world for good and to put a smile
on the faces of all mankind. I pray that you will be a solution
provider, a source of joy for all and a chronic lover of God. You shall
be the head and never the tail. Nations will come to you for solutions
to their problems and you will be the pillar they will lean on. They
will identify the grace of God on your life.
Dave, you know I love you with every molecule in my body and I will
gladly lay down my life for you. I promise to be the best father any
child can ever hope for. Why won’t I aim for that when I have the best
son that any parent can ever dream or hope for? Yes, you are the best
son on the planet. I promise to be a much better father to you than my
father ever was to me. I promise to put you on the right path to
greatness following only God’s plan for your life. Not my plan…God’s
Thank you for being a source of strength to your daddy. You are like a
20 year old stuck in the body of a 6 year old kid. You are not just a
son but a great friend. You always make sure there is a smile on my face
and even when I scold you for running around inside the house (because
you know its a law. No running in the house!) with tears in your eyes,
you still do silly things that make me burst into uncontrollable
laughter. I am grateful to God for giving me a son like you. At just 6
years old, you have already made me a proud father. When you brought
home your certificate of excellence from school as the top student in
class, you were scared when you saw tears in my eyes. Dave, those were
tears of joy because you are fulfilling all the promises God has made
over your life.
David, seeing the smile on your face every morning is nothing but pure
heaven. I love the way you dance to every beat. You even dance to the
music of every commercial that comes on TV. The fact that you now dance
like a white kid is more amusing and you know it but you still won’t
stop when I tease you about it. We need to get your rhythm back dude.
LOL. Maybe I threw out the Whiz Kid CD too soon. LOL. I love the way you
laugh when I do my very horrible british accent and you say, “Daddy,
that doesn’t sound british at all”. It makes you crack up anyway. Then
you do yours that sounds like you’re from another planet.
In everything you do, always put God first, family next, then your
career/work should follow. Don’t every change that order because you
will regret it. Don’t let anything take God’s place in your life; not
money, not family, not fame. Nothing. When you have God and you work
according to his will and his way, everything in your life will fall in
place. Do not place your career or wealth above your family because when
the chips are down, the family at home is where you run to. Love your
family and always say it. Tell them everyday. Say it like you’ve never
said it before. Don’t hesitate to make that phone call to your family or
send a text only to say, “I am thinking of you and I want to say I love
you” or “Thank you for being there for me.”
BuBu, don’t be afraid to dream big and to chase those dreams. The world
will tell you that your dreams are unachievable and lofty. Don’t worry,
they can’t achieve it because they are not you. You can do anything you
set your heart to do. Think it. Believe it. Achieve it. I tell you that
every single day and we both know that we have achieved some phenomenal
things in this life, right? Don’t wait for other people’s validation
before you do what you have to do. As long as it is right with God and
right in your heart, and the Holy Spirit in you does not question it, do
You don’t have to go the way of the multitude. Don’t be afraid to do
something great because only a few people have dared to. The greatest
people that ever lived and and changed the world were mostly the
minority. They stepped away from the norm and probably broke all
protocol. (We have talked about that before haven’t we?)
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Never be afraid to fall. But always
remember that in every mistake made, there is a lesson to be learnt.
Whenever you fall, there must be something you need to pick up from the
floor that will help you as you get up and continue your journey through
life. In life, you will make mistakes but always make sure that there
is a serious lesson learnt from that mistake so you don’t make the same
one again. It’s important that you not only learn from your mistakes,
but also from the mistakes that others have made. Including your father.
You and I have spent several nights talking, laughing, playing,
building space ships and eating potato chips with soda till 3am. You
have seen me cry at night all by myself and you have been a source of
strength even to your daddy. Don’t be afraid to cry, even as a man. It
helps to let it all out once in a while but as soon as the tears are
gone, get back on your feet and face the world with your head held up
Value friendship. Good friendship. Never be selfish in your relationship
with people. What you cannot tolerate, don’t do to others. Don’t make
promises you can’t keep. Learn to say no when you have to say no so you
don’t get entangled in commitments that will become a burden to you
eventually. Don’t let anybody change the core of who you are. Don’t let
circumstances or the world destroy the purity of your heart. The world
is a complicated place to live in. Not because God made it so, but
because the humans in it have made it complicated. In all you do, look
for the beauty in the world, the honesty and the positive. Living in a
complicated and struggling world does not mean you have to struggle and
be complicated. Don’t get caught up in their vices. Don’t get involved
with the madness around you. Fix your eyes on the positive. Fix your
eyes on God. Greatness awaits you David. I have seen it. I can feel it. I
know it.
I know you always joke about making all the money we will ever need when
you’re 6 years old . Emm…dude, you’re 6 now. You wanna start paying
part of the mortgage now? LOL. Remember that a portion of that money
also goes to your mummy because she loves you very much.
family is very important.
But right now, focus on your school and keep
your eyes on God.
When you look back on these words in Twenty years, I need you to know
that they are from the heart of a man who is so proud to be your father.
David, you have touched the lives of everyone around you with your
honesty, your purity, your smile and your dance moves. May God never
take his eyes off you and may His peace always be with you. Happy
Birthday David and I love you more than words can ever express.
From your daddy,
