Today my baby turns 20 years old!(Sorry about the baby part, Luke, but this is the cross you will have to bear in life being the youngest!)
What a difference a day can make. As of today, we no longer have teenagers in our house. All my children have crossed that great divide into adulthood!
Happy Birthday Lukester!
I am so blessed and so very happy! So, "Why," you ask, "are there tears in your eyes?"
You know me, I just can't contain myself. The love I have for you just wells up and spills over.
I am so proud of you! And so blessed and privileged to have you in my life! You have become such a fine young man. I love the true kindness and gentleness you have for others. I love when you serenade me with your guitar. Your laugh and smile bring true joy in my life. I believe we are kindred spirits.
What great memories of you and your Legos, karate, baseball, guitars, skateboards, trampoline tricks, costumes, earliest video productions with Jeremy, prayers for a dog ("with a good personality").....
Happy birthday my son!
I hope you never underestimate how special you are to me.
I love you with all my heart,
