Today my oldest son turns 38. Hard to believe it’s been 38 years since I held him and looked into his innocent, precious face.

As I looked at his sleeping face, little did I realize the twists and turns my life, and his, would take over the next 38 years.
It is a good thing that we are so innocent as we begin a new chapter, a new part of our life, as we plan and anticipate what our future will hold
If we knew the challenges and hardships ahead of time, would we be so eager to move forward?
That innocence is a grace, a special moment to dream of all the possibilities ahead.
Happy birthday son. Love you.
