Dept. of Beautiful People

To My Son

I wrote the following on Facebook, where FB is most often online, but his birthday is an important date at Casakaffyr. His is one of the two stars around which I've circled, willingly, for decades. I am so glad that he is my son.

Dearest Andy:

Back some 31 years, just around this time, you were taking your own sweet time entering our world. You eventually did, a little later in the day, and the world has been a better place for it.

Andy, you are one of the brightest lights of my life, and I have seen how much you light up others' lives as well. You are wise in the best ways, the ways of kindness and compassion; those around you have benefitted greatly as a result. You are learning other wisdoms
 as well, which will make your light burn even more brightly.

As you enter another year of life, you can be proud of your growth. As a mother, I am proud and humble in the face of your talents, your creativity, and the life that bursts from you.

We have had our tumbles, and you have had your own; you always rose up from them, and we have always remained a team, whether that meant sitting together and watching Duck Tales, arguing over who got to be online the most in the days of one household computer, geeking out over Doctor Who, or providing shoulders for each other to cry on.

I love you more than you will ever know — and I like you more than ever. May this day be fantastic for you, and may this year be magnificent!
