Let me tell you about My Boy Gabe. The day he was born, his Daddy and I spent the evening trekking the hiking trail around the park, as well as the hospital grounds, waiting for him to decide he the time was right for his arrival. Once he was ready, 45 minutes later, HELLO! he made his appearance!
He’s like that when it comes to decision making. When he needs to get from Point A to Point D, he is sure to go through points B and C in an orderly and organized manner. This boy of mine, he’s a thinker, a problem solver. “What are your plans when you get older, Gabe?” He quickly answers “I’ll study to be an engineer like my Dad and older brothers.”
This boy with the great big, melt-your-heart brown eyes, this boy who asks for broccoli pizza for his birthday dinner, this boy with the most infectious laugh I’ve ever heard, this boy who is a gift from God, our 6th blessing here on earth – he’s turning 11.
We’ll be having a family dinner and celebration tonight, a picnic and get-together with friends later this week. Will you join me in wishing him a happy birthday? How do you celebrate birthdays at your house?
