Happy Birthday, Luke

My Lessons as a Mother
To my firstborn, my daughter Alexia, I gave her the dreams I dreamed
To my second born, my son Adam, I gave him directions on how to dream
To my third born, my son Luke, I gave him a white canvas and a brush

My baby is eighteen today! I know he would cringe at the "baby" part of that . . . but, nevertheless, he is my youngest child of three . . . and eighteen years ago today, he came into this world with the courage and strength of the lion he is. He has been with me through a lot - the many major changes in my life - and he has taught me so much about life . . . acceptance, patience, kindness, honesty . . . He is very wise for his years. Happy Birthday, Luke. I love you!

Wow -- happy birthday! Great names with Alexia and Adam. Luke looks almost identical to my buddy Jim from the 1970s. And Bob Marley, not less.

They must be very proud to enjoy you as a Mom. Sweet! (And sexy, if that's not too inappropriate ;)

Haha -- let me clarify -- YOU look sexy, Ms. Pythia3 ;)
