Gavin, Riley and I enjoying a special Spring Break trip.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Doug Keating. A few years ago my marriage ended which impacted my life in many ways – some positive and some negative. As a result of the divorce, I get to see my boys a few days a month (every other weekend), and for a few weeks in the summer. This constant separation caused me great concern as I wondered how can I be a good father to my boys without having much access to them, and the world they live in…so I decided to do something about it. I started writing “a letter” to them about life lessons that I have learned through the years. Basically, they get a new lesson every time they are with me. These lessons are not long (one page each), and not really that profound. Rather they offer me a creative and meaningful way to pass along what little knowledge and wisdom I have for my boys.
