21 Years


Today is Scott’s 21st birthday. I struggled to find an appropriate card at the Jewel last night. Hallmark, American Greetings, and the like seem a lazy way to recognize a milestone birthday. I understand, however, that when we are rushed and tired, it is easier to let card wordsmiths say it. I will give him the purchased card with cash tucked inside. He can go buy something that will soon be forgotten, but I hope he remembers one thing—his mother loves him. Always.

Photo--Uncle Scott introduces Nicolas to video games. Well, Nicolas is just happy playing with the controller.

Happy Birthday, Scott!

My stepson Scott (how funny, our sons are both named Scott! he's 23!)loves receiving cards with cash inside. He's taking his teaching degree and is always short on cash!

And he knows I love him, as well, always, no matter what. As does your son. Enjoy the day, Sheila!
