The end of childhood, the beginning of big childhood.





The number changes, but not much else, physically, on this day. But somehow I must acknowldege the eminent change from boy to man, from child to adult, from my responsiblity to his own. As he goes forward, he takes one more step away from my encircling wings of protection. With luck and hope, I release him.

Happy birthday, Ryan.

I've always love the saying, trite as it is, "first we give them roots, then we give them wings." This transition time seems to give the meaning to "bittersweet." Ah ... many blessings to you all as the next stage begins.
