Our beloved boy is 28 today

And he and his girlfriend are coming over to spend the day here! There will be cake and candles later on. After work, his dad and sister will join us. So will his cousin who lives with us (she is out on a day date with a boy we've heard about but haven't yet met. He's in town for the weekend, and she certainly seemed excited). How beautifully our firstborn has grown. I remember when he was a baby, I wondered what kind of man he would become, what work he would do, how he would love. I am gratified to say my funny cranky boy is a wonderful and caring man, if a bit bossy like his mama. When we were in Toronto at the hotel last weekend, I came down to the dining room to order breakfast and he and his sister and cousins were already there. He got up from his table and came over to me at the counter and began pointing out various menu items I might like and suggesting I get the cold brewed coffee because it had a less bitter aftertaste. He towered over me, and had his arm around my shoulders as he stood there imparting information I might want to make my choice. I chuckled and looked up at him and said, "You are making me feel so taken care of right now." We saw ourselves and laughed. I feel like an incredibly lucky mother. Happy birthday, darling boy! We love you forever.

  5. they say you can tell how a man will treat his wife by the way he treats his mother. I'd say whoever his wife turns out to be has nothing to worry about.

  11. Oh I have a huge lump in my throat reading your story of your beautiful kind hearted son. Your story reminded me of my firstborn Jonathan. He always waited for me to come to the table before he sat down he would hold the chair for me. To this day he is the kindest man and such an honest man. Happy Birthday to your wonderful son.

    I am so sorry to be so far behind but I finally got some antibiotics so I hope that I will get better soon and back to blogging regularly. Hugs, Beth
