2 birthdays celebrated without his best friend and brother.
A new way of living for him.
Pushing, pulling, stretching boundaries.
Reaching to find. . . who he is.
Life dealing him lemons.
His soul learning to make lemonade.
His view of life; so different from mine.
Lessons learned at every turn.
His path bumpy at times.
Yet so willing to adapt to the conditions.
This is my boy.
Honored at school with an award and a gift.
Given for “his love of life.”
His quest to press on.
He may walk through this life in an unconventional manner.
A manner I am learning to appreciate.
Happy 16th birthday my boy.
You bring me great joy.
You teach me each day,
“It’s all how you look at it.”
Re-posting last years thoughts.
I wake with a start.
He who does all, in his own timing.
Resting in the plan by One wiser than I.
Knowing that all is in it’s time.
Happy 15th Birthday Cedric.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
