I know I’m the slackest of all kids, moved away to another state and hardly ever call, but it doesn’t mean I don’t love you and miss you every day.
I’d like to take this occassion, your birthday, to publicly thank you for everything you’ve ever given me.
Far beyond the gift of life you have given me so much in this life. You have taught me to be the man I have become. To have compassion for those around me, to take humans as they are and accept them openly. To see beyond the person before me and to understand that each has their journey to tread in this life and that it isn’t my place to judge them without proof.
And that is only scratching the surface of all I have become because of you.
While I’m not there to celebrate with you, I’m sure my siblings will take good care of you and ensure you have a great birthday.
Love you Mum, Happy Birthday.
– Your Number Two Son.
