Do not regret growing older.
It is a privilege denied to many. ~Author Unknown
In my heart I often thank your Mother for allowing you the chance to live. The world without Kilo? You have had an impact on many lives and we are all different because of that. So this is my public thank you to the woman who made that tough decision and carried you to term and then graciously sent you on your way to a life that she could not give you. Mother, thank you for giving your son the chance at a good life. Know that today he is living a life that you would be proud of and he has become a man you would be honored to present as your son.
A man's age is something impressive, it sums up his life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A man's age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wartime Writings 1939-1944, translated from French by Norah Purcell
Happy Birthday Baby!!! I love how a year older looks on you.
