It's time for another birthday celebration. Today is my middle son's 25th and my DIL's 27th. We celebrated her's on Easter. My son has requested a pizza and beer party for him and his buds. I think I'll schedule his party for a weekend in about two weeks, still choosing the location. Think the location was just settled. but will have to include a bottle of wine or two for the moms (most of which are in my Wine and Whine group, a feisty bunch of advocates for their now adults children with special needs)
Ah Celebration! He, I and our family, have survived his open heart surgery, a three month ICU stay, getting a pacemaker at 19 and various other surgeries. Through it all his joyful spirit shines through. Loving life, enjoying life, celebrating life.
He has taught me to cherish all the good. Stand up and speak up for those who cannot do so for themselves. Most of all to love. He is happy with who he is, a lesson I needed to learn. That we are wonderful just as we are.
With his limited speech he requested a Pizza and Beer party with his friends. How can I not oblige.
