I wrote this first version of "20 reasons to love my son" in 2009. It was an assignment from 'Father's school'. In this program, for 4 days, I learned how to love and how to communicate to my family - wife, son, and daughter.

Here is the original version of 2009.

01. I love Timmy who wakes up by himself on time.
02. I love Timmy who eats any food with appreciation.
03. I love Timmy who smiles a lot and who is always positive.
04. I love Timmy who keeps himself clean and neat.
05. I love Timmy who always does exercise and has a good body shape.

06. I love Timmy who puts an effort in Taekwondo and teaches younger kids.
07. I love Timmy who didn't quit Violin for 8 years.
08. I love Timmy who sang a beautiful song in Middle school graduation ceremony.
09. I love Timmy who practices guitar everyday to be a good soloist.
10. I love Timmy who writes well, as like me :)

11. I love Timmy who was so sad when he got 690 from math and couldn't get into SET.
12. I love Timmy who felt sorry for his jealousy to his friend who got in a prep school.
13. I love Timmy who can make friends at any time anywhere.
14. I love Timmy who understands any book he reads so easily.
15. I love Timmy who read Harry Potter bought in San Francisco airport before the flight arrived Seoul.

16. I love Timmy who asked me help to overcome temptation for pornography.
17. I love Timmy who is tall and handsome, not like me.
18. I love Timmy who says "I love you" to mom and hugs her frequently.
19. I love Timmy who has many of my weak points.
20. I love Timmy who will overcome the weak points and be a better person than me.

...

I remember people asked me "Why do you attend father's school? You are already a good father!" I said "I am not a good father. I want to be a real good father." But frankly, I thought I was one. I thought I was doing well as a father.

3 years passed. Timmy is now 16, becoming 17 in a week. Going through good times and not-so-good times. And I am realizing that I am really not-a-good father. I was not a good listener. When he needs help, I didn't provide it. I didn't communicate. 

This morning, I encountered this 2009 writing by a chance. Since then, many things are changed. He quit something and picked up new things. My understanding of him is changed also.

So Here comes a 2012 version. Many of them changed and will change as time goes. But the last two-line will be same.

01. I love Timmy who wakes up at 5 in the morning to be an early bird.
02. I love Timmy who eats any food with appreciation.
03. I love Timmy who smiles a lot and is always positive.
04. I love Timmy who keeps himself clean and neat.
05. I love Timmy who always does exercise and has a good body shape.

06. I love Timmy who likes to think and wants to be a philosophy professor.
07. I love Timmy who realizes happiness is not from money or position.
08. I love Timmy who lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks to compete in wrestling as a varsity.
09. I love Timmy who puts his effort to be a great wrestler.
10. I love Timmy who overcame limitations and did a wonderful job during debates season.

11. I love Timmy who overcame internal struggle and decided to be honest with me.
12. I love Timmy who admits mistakes and tries to make up all the time.
13. I love Timmy who can make friends at any time anywhere.
14. I love Timmy who understands any book he reads so easily.
15. I love Timmy who is tall and handsome, not like me.

16. I love Timmy who wants to find his own meaning of his life.
17. I love Timmy who wants me to be proud of him.
18. I love Timmy who says "I love you" to mom and hugs her frequently.
19. I love Timmy who has many of my weak points.
20. I love Timmy who will overcome the weak points and be a better person than me.

...

As I think 20 reasons to love Timmy, in other parts of my mind, I had one question. "Do you need 20 reasons to love him?"

Of course not. I don't need 20 reasons. I love him because he is Timmy, my son :)

저도 이런 걸 해봐야겠군요. 어떻게 사랑하지 않을 수 있겠습니까, 가족을! 하지만 사랑하는 이유에 대해선 생각해보진 않았던 것같아요. 이번 기회에 적고 가족들에게 한 번 보여줘야 겠어요. : )

참 오랜만에 블로그에 들렀습니다. 한동안 방치를 했더니 광고 댓글로 엉망이 되어 있네요. 관리좀 해야겠습니다 ㅡ.ㅡ

한번 적어보세요. 가족들 모두에게 적어놓은게 있는데 각자 생일 때 올린다고 해놓고 잊어버렸습니다. 다시 올려야겠어요 ^^
