It’s been fifteen years, and seems like just a few days have past. I still remember as if it was just a moment ago. The small wet face that was presented to me that day. And the eyes that looked at me, and I was immediately captivated, drawn. I didn’t know what to do. I mean, he seemed so small and fragile, so I kissed his forehead and said “God bless you son, welcome to life!”. As he was taken back to the nursery, I started to cry as many emotions overcame me, I had a son, I had become a father!
That was fifteen years ago today. I still kiss his forehead, everyday. I am proud of him, and I can’t wait to see what God will do in and through him. Fifteen years, it seems a lot, but it’s so little time. Life is a flicker and you should embrace every moment and those around you.
Happy birthday Alex! I love you with all my heart, and that will never change. You know it very well; You and I were born the same day, you were born to life and I was born to the adventure of being a father. And I wouldn’t change that for anything.
