Happy Birthday, E!

My handsome son is 23 years old today.  I say it every year, but I simply cannot believe that he has so quickly grown from that beautiful little baby boy into a tall, strong, intelligent, capable young man.   If you haven't read my old blog entry about his birth, you can read about it in an earlier post.  It was quite an experience!

Son, I hope that you have a wonderful day.  I pray that you continue your pursuit of happiness and that your thirst for knowledge and your quest for answers never die.  I hope that you understand that life will knock you down at times, but that you must find the strength within yourself to get back up again and again, and that I will always do anything I can to help.  I hope that you know how much you are loved, no matter how grumpy you might be :-).

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Evan. My son turned 25 this year and I can't believe that he's finally grown out of the teen years. It's so wonderful to be able to like him again as well as love him.

This December, my boys will be 34 and 39! They'll always be my 'boys', but I guess I should call them my men. :)
