Luke, the birthday boy
Luke, our first grandchild, celebrated turning 11-years-old recently. In a few more years we may still choose to call him "the birthday boy” on his special day, but the label won’t be accurate. He is rapidly maturing into a young man.
During a visit today, our son Walt pointed out that in about four more years Luke will be the age that his dad Walt was when he and Sarah, Luke’s mom and our daughter-in-law, first started going together.
Watching Luke with 11 candles in front of him, I could still feel the overwhelming joy and thankfulness that I experienced when I cuddled our little month-early Luke for the first time.
