On March 1st our son Kevin will celebrate his 27th birthday and sadly, we won’t be able to be with him. I realized in reviewing my last four years of posts that we haven’t had a chance to celebrate his birthday with him in quite a while. This is our family picture from December.
He’s quite the traveler, you know. In recent years he’s been in…
Texas, Washington, California, Nebraska, Mississippi, Colorado, Arizona, Louisiana, undisclosed locations in Iraq, undisclosed locations in Afghanistan. And he already has plans for more fun travels in the months to come. I love the adventurer in him.
He’s a guy after my own heart in so many ways!
I’m so thankful to have him as a son. I’ve shared a lot about him on previous birthdays, and could give an example for each of these words, but this time I’ll share just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of him:
I love him because he’s…gentle, sensitive, loving, full of adventure, kind, compassionate, helpful, smart, loves to laugh and make others laugh, enjoys life, perpetual learner, deep thinker, creative, thoughtful, musically gifted, generous, and so so so much more…
Here’s a picture of him with his girlfriend, Chelsea.
Kevin, thank you for making us proud to be your parents.
If you want to see more pictures and read about him (from a mother’s point of you), you can look at his last 4 birthday posts.
