My son is 12 years old today. He makes me as proud as I have ever been of anything. He surprises me with his wit, his sensitivity, his calm and his insight. He teaches me how to be more mindful, how to listen better, how to let go of chips on my shoulder and how to have fun. He is growing up into his own person, we can see it now more clearly each season and it’s happening faster and faster, soon he’ll be all grown – but we are treasuring each and every moment we get to spend with him now. Happy Birthday Ares. We love you so.
