It is my son's birthday today. This is for him.
Happy Birthday My Darling Boy-Now A Man, but always our child. That's the way life is, as parents we watched you grow into a wonderfully confident, outgoing adult, full of kindess and strength of character, but you will always be 'our sweet child'. We are so proud of you.
This is a photo of him with my niece who now lives in Germany. At the time (1986) she and her family were living in Norway and we were lucky enough to visit them. I remember taking this photo vividly, following them as we all walked down to the water's edge. I have shared it before during my blogging years, but it is a favorite so I hope you will indulge me as I share it again.
Oh my goodness, how time flies!
