It seems like yesterday, it seems like a lifetime ago.
To see him born, to see him grow into a young man and bring me the joy that he does. It makes me proud to be his father.
Twelve years is not nearly enough.
So today, on his twelfth birthday I have a request to God, please allow me to continue my battle with Prostate Cancer long enough for me to:
- watch him graduate from middle school and move on to high school (May 2011)
- teach him to drive and get his first drivers license (2012)
- celebrate his high school graduation (2015)
- send him off to college
- attend his wedding
- hold my first grandchild
……so much more…..
Happy Birthday Brad, I love you son, you are the best!
So where does a twelve year old ask to go for his birthday dinner? Houston's, where else! We had a great evening and I even cheated by having bbq ribs for the first time in four years! They were fantastic, just as I remembered! It was a great meal, for a special occassion, spent with special people.
