happy birthday little lion boy. Few things, or people bring me as much joy as you do. And there is something about your hands, they are strong, and gentle at the same time…you get that from daddy. You are complicated, but aren’t we all ? You are funny, and altogether charming. Even when you try to go your own way (much to my dismay)…your cleverness is impressive.
Perhaps I am a little too in love with you, maybe just a little hesitant to accept that you are double digits now…I don’t know. The time is just going so fast. I thank God for you.
So go. Go play your boy games of war, and destruction….hide and seek, and flashlight army. When you need me , I will be here. Waiting….love always, mommy.
