Today you turn 35. Every year is an important year…right here in adulthood,  facing a new stage of your life pretty soon. You have grown up so fast. It doesn’t seem like any time at all since you were just a thought…a wish.

From the moment your father and I married, we knew we wanted you. Your name was chosen long before we knew we would have you…Hennie…strong and manly. Just the idea of you brought  joy to our lives. And then…there you were, our bundle of joy….

You must have been eagerly anticipating greeting the world as well, because you decided to arrive with a presence that made everyone stand still…We brought all 6 pounds 4 ounces of you home with us and ever since then, we have marvelled at your strength!

You have grown into a fine young man, worthy of the name chosen for you so long ago!  Smart, very witty, dedicated, kind, hard working and all the things I ever wished and hoped you would become. You have handled the transitions and challenges you had to endure the last few years, like a champion and for that I am so eternally grateful and extremely proud!  You are a wonderful role model to so many others, who can only look up to you for guidance, strength and most importantly, love.

In the years to come, you will be faced with many more choices…..I know in my heart that you will make choices that are healthy, choices that will help you become the best man that you can be. And the knowing that you have that special person in your life to face everything that comes your way, make me even more proud!  I so look forward to the next chapter in your lives.

I couldn’t ask for, or be more proud  of the son you are today and the man you have become.  I love you so very much.

Happy Birthday.

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
