Happy Birthday



To The Happening Dude on your 18th birthday.

There are not enough words to express how grateful we are that you wanted to come live with us. There are not enough words to express how proud you make us and how much joy you've brought to our family since you've become a part of it.

Through most of your life, the adults who have been in charge of loving, cherishing and nourishing your unique and caring spirit have let you down, but you've flourished in spite of it. You have so many special gifts and so much potential.

Please know that we couldn't love you more if you had been born to us.

You're OUR guy.

Happy 18th, you precious boy.

As usual, Mom, you know how to pull heartstrings.

Happy 18, Happening. And a tip: ugly up a little to keep all the females from chasing you. I'm sure that's quite bothersome.

Hello. I have been blog-hopping and stumbled across yours. Your Happening dude is a very handsome and I think blessed young man to have you in his life. I read all of your post from the onset of H1N1 - my husband and daughter got it but in a much less virile form - never went to the hospital. These posts made my jaw drop - never knew the bullets we dodged. You have been threw it Girl. I salute your tenacity, honesty and your ability to blog through it all.
' I'll be back '
