My second-born son is 30 today?!
Two of my five offspring are now "in their 30's." How did that happen?!?!?!?!
Why, just yesterday, the birthday boy looked like this.
This trend has only continued, through the 3 decades that he's been on this earth (making it a better planet by far--not just for me, but for all who come into his orbit).
I would be sad that the little blond boy in these photos is all grown up, and that it seems like it happened much too fast...but that would be silly. Because if he was still a little tyke, I wouldn't have moments like this with him.
I don't know if there is any greater joy for a mother of sons than to dance with them at their weddings. What a blessing that is, to live long enough to see your boys find the women who will be their partners for life. And these women do not make you obsolete; no, they make you a mother of daughters, finally.
So happy birthday to my sweet second son. I know it will be a great day for you--because I know you already have the greatest gift you could ever receive.
