It's First Born Son's 15th birthday today. He has been the greatest gift day in and day out. His humor, his kindness, his endurance, his ideas, his great taste in music- all qualities worth imitating. I feel so fortunate to learn from his perspective each day. But, it has been an exacting task trying to find a suitable gift for him since is tastes have shifted. (By taste, I mean that he finally has some. Hallelujah!) And the siblings have struggled as well with the formidable task of finding a worthy present for their older brother. But, I think they rose to the challenge.
Happy Birthday to you- if it is your birthday, too! And if it isn't your birthday, A Very Merry Unbirthday and a Joyful Friday to you! I am also over at Mamalode today. They have been kind enough to share my essay, The Glimmer, from last Friday.
