Happy 17th Birthday to My Son!

Happy Birthday, Michael!

It feels like just yesterday I was writing about your 16th. Boy, did this year fly by.I now find myself writing again. We had so many twists and turns last year. But here we are, I’m writing to you again.

Last March you obtained your driver's permit. I still remember the drive to Cheshire like it was yesterday. They had all of the parents sit in a room, I think I was more nervous than you were. Do you remember driving after getting your permit? 

On the last day of spring football, you fractured your collarbone. You were such a champ about the entire experience, and you showed resilience. I’m so proud of you!

This past summer you got a summer job at one of my favorite retailers. You gained so much knowledge from that experience, and I’m forever grateful you were allowed to have the opportunity. 

Can you believe that this fall you will be approaching your senior year?! Always remember how loved you are. Always remember that some people are just meant to be in your life for a season and reason. Value your time, value your space, value yourself. 

Always remember that it what you do when people are not looking that really defines your character. 

Michal, just know that you can be and do anything that you put your mind to. Remember that you are my greatest treasure.

Forever and always
