Today we celebrated our son Mike's 40th birthday!! Very hard to believe, do all moms see only the little boy when they look at their grown sons? It is a strange feeling. Mike works at the Little Debbie snack cake factory, where he makes the honey buns. He often works 16 hours a day. He is also a deacon in his church. He has turned into a wonderful person, kind, caring, and sensible. A hard worker, but always with a huge sense of humor. As I get older, I wish I'd been a better mom, but don't we all? So who knows if he turned out the way he did because of me or in spite of me? Here is the birthday cake that his friend made him, she owns a local bakery. It is a penguin with a tennis racket, because Mike is a tennis player. And here is Mike with his daughter and Phil and I. In the last picture, he is dancing with Anne Marie, a spur of the moment twirl in time that had her breathless with laughter.
"The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!" Proverbs 23:24,25
