Happy 15th Birthday!!

Today my firstborn turns 15. Ugh! I mean, “Hurray!!”

He stands 5’10”, just half an inch shorter than me. His voice is deeper and daily his shoulders broaden. It is bizarre to see these changes.

This has been a rough year for us. There have been triumphs and struggles. It seems the dark moments are darker than ever but the moments when the sun breaks through are more spectacular than ever.

This year Daniel is talking about getting his first job and maybe his learner’s permit. He wants to drive more than almost anything.

Here is Daniel last year at his birthday:

And here is Daniel today:

Daniel at 15

Daniel has changed so many lives, starting with my own. I am thankful for him… sometimes spontaneously and sometimes simply by choice. The one thing that is never a choice is my love for him. Every day, I love him! Happy Birthday Daniel!
