Today marks the 10th Birthday of The Youngest. This kid has weathered alot over the last year, and it has taken a toll on his happiness. He is still my natural born diplomat, and can still make me laugh with a look or just a word. I am constantly surprised by his intellect and thoughtfulness. He is a rough and tumble boy of boys, an everyboy. Underneath that rough exterior and often thorny attitude is the heart of a little boy, yearning to be understood and loved.
I do love him, with all of my heart and soul. He knows it too. I can only hope to make the next ten years as enjoyable and full as the first tn have been.
