Here's to the Birthday Boy

There are so many things I want for you,
as many wishes in my heart
as I watch you grow into your own life...
I wish you a world of adventure and experience--
and also the serenity
that comes from listening to your inner voice
as the world rushes around you...
I wish you the strength
to face challanges with confidence-
along with the wisdom
to choose your battles carefull..
I wish you the satisfaction
of seeing your goals achieved
and also the true contentment
that is born of simple things--
work well-done,
friends well-loved,
moments caught and cherished.
And my greatest wish is that
you will always rememer
how much
you are loved--
for you are a good and caring person...
A man we are proud
to have for a Son!
Happy 18th Birthday, SonMySon!!!
As you can see from the pictures below, my youngest babe is no longer a little boy.
He's been taller than me for a couple of years now, so I am getting used to looking up to him.
Now I look up to him in more ways than one.
I am very proud of him. This is just one of the reasons.

Breaking 2 boards simultaneously.
I was pretty impressed with how high he jumped. Shoulder height to the board holders standing on chairs! and landed on his feet, nimble and catlike!

SonMySon, black belt and TaeKwonDo instructor. Good work, Son! I hope your eighteenth birthday was a memorable for you as it was for me. Of course, you are looking ahead, I spent the day looking back over your childhood.
