It’s been decades since we’ve seen the heartthrob in Dawson’s Creek, and we’re in for a treat.

Going viral is the 44-year-old post of this father-of-five with a heartwarming post of how content and blessed he is now. “Only thing I own here is the hat.Don’t own the boat. That’s a rental.Don’t own the lake. That’s for everyone. Don’t own the kids. They belong to themselves.Definitely don’t own the rainbow – although it’d awesome if I did.Don’t own my wife (who took the pic) – that’s a partnership I earn every day.Don’t own my body. That’s also a rental.Coming to the realization that I’m really just a steward: Of my health, of my talents, of my relationships. And that my sovereignty exists not to seize ownership in my interactions with the world around me… but to nurture the quality of those connections. But make no mistake: The $20 hat I bought in the marina gift shop is all mine.”

Only thing I own here is the hat.Don’t own the boat. That’s a rental.Don’t own the lake. That’s for everyone….
