twenty-five


Happy Birthday to my middle son. As his wedding approaches in 19 days, I can no longer think of him as a child - I'm so proud of this amazing young man. He is a caring, thoughtful, fun-loving young adult and is a social organizer for his circle of friends. He has many life changes ahead of him as he moves with his bride to Fort Collins, CO and begins a graduate program in watershed science. Giving up a job and following your dream takes courage and I know he will succeed. He loves life and makes the most of every adventure. Now he is out there in the world - I pray for him to have a joyful life. I hope he knows how much he is loved.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Now you have a really great reason to visit Colorado often. This Texas heat is making me sure want to go visit there right now!

Happy Birthday wishes from Ohio!
What courage it takes to follow one's dream... I wonder if it has to do with those who raised, encouraged, and loved him? Way to go mom!
