While I had the day picked out for him many years ago, he arrived a week early. He has always been a little ahead of me, with everything he does. It truly is amazing watching him going up. From his early years of crazy surprises to watching him now with even more surprises. They have always been interesting and fun. I loved the time he was jumping on the plank at a mini golf course, he just gave me a wonderful surprise and made me laugh. Mike has always had a way of thinking outside the box with new ideas and ways of enjoying life.
Just last week at the beach I watched him care for his daughter and keeping the place clean. While I loved having my granddaughter at the beach with me to enjoy, it was truly wonderful to watch my son care for his daughter with the joy and love I always tried to give him. My son has grown into a man who shared so much joy and love with everyone around. I really loved how he played with her on the beach, or riding the rides for her, and making sure she ate good and not all that stuff I got for them. Yes, my son has grown into a wonderful Man.
Happy Birthday Michael.
Much joy and love to you and yours.
