On Sunday June 19, 2011 it's our turn.. that's right! It's Fathers Day and I'm elated to say that for 10 years and some months, I've had the privilege of wearing the hat of dad daily (A full 24 hours, 7 days a week). Through the up and downs (the hurdles seen and unforeseen) the one thing that remain a constant since the day little tee was born, I am a father to a son and for as long as I have God's blessing, His mercy and grace to see another day I'll continue to live up to the challenge of raising a son to be a man, and prayerfully a even better father to his son(s) and/ or daughter(s).
His mom went into labor on a Monday night around midnight and 14 and half hours later 2:28 pm on Tuesday the 26th day of September 2000, we were blessed with a handsome young prince, Terry Reese III. It wasn't until the moment I held him in my arms that he was named after me.

Lil Tee's mom had initially got me to settle for Terrence Jamal Reese before birth.. Whew! Not a fan of that name... But once I held him in my arms and looked her in the eyes when the nurse asked us what will be the name of our blessing. I got my wish to name him after my father and I. See picture =>

I look forward to celebrating this day, Fathers Day with my son.
Wishing my Father a Happy Father's Day.
Today, I lift in prayer my desires that God continues to grant me the courage, the strength and the guidance I'll need daily of meeting the expectations of what it means to be a 'Father to a Son'.
Happy Fathers Day to all the true fathers of the world.
The greatest gift we all can give our sons and daughters is 'Our Time'.
