Happy Birthday, Zach!
It seems that lately I am writing nothing but birthday posts. Yesterday was my son's 17th birthday. Happy Birthday, Zach.
A child's teenage years can be tough for everyone, kids and parents alike. A teenager knows everything. Nothing is tentative. Everything is known with dead certainty. I know, I was a teenager myself once, many, many, many years ago. If I was ever insensitive or unbending or just plain obnoxious to my parents, I would like to offer overdue apologies. Really.
The photos shown above are of my son and taken long ago. Look at those poses. Do they suggest that he might be directing some lesser mortals to do his bidding? I can't remember the occasions, but have to wonder.
All kidding aside, I love my son, am grateful to have him, and wish him a long and happy life.
