My Magnificant, Magnanimous Michael

wpid-img_2913.jpgyoung michaelIn my youth, a long long time ago, I never imagined myself having children.  I did, two fantastic daughters.  I certainly did not imagine grandchildren.  I do.  Two wonderful grandsons.

And Michael, the eldest just turned 12.  Oh gosh I remember when I was 12, young, full of ideas.  Now that is Michael.

Michael, when you were born I was awed, so amazed at you.  I held you and was just a tiny bit fearful about what type of grandparent I would be.  But you my darling, are a most marvelous grandson.

You stayed with me often when you were a baby, any weekends I could snatch you away.  You slept at the foot of my bed, safely tucked away.  And I knew the morning you climbed out of bed on your own, that I was in for a busy ride.

You have grown so strong, so smart, so loving.  You have an empathy for others that boggles my mind.  I love you. and I find such delight in watching you grow into a young man.  But hey, could you slow down, soon you will be taller than me, and a man fully grown.    Stay strong, stay safe, stay happy my love.mike2

 

The Dashing, Daring, Deliberate, Devon

handsomedevHappy Birthday to our Devon.  The Man who builds all, takes care of multitudes, Is an amazing father to Da Boys, and a wonderful husband and best friend to our Copy (3) of mags and devdaughter Maggie.

Devon, I met you when you were a boy, still baby face fresh in high school.  You drove about that whatever type of car it was with pride, worked hard, and proved to be a kind, and thoughtful man.  Your good cheer is always contagious, and your concern for all evident.

You have always helped me, spending countless hours fixing my cars, sheet rocking our Lakeville kitchen while you were still in high school, and oh what a wonderful gift that was to return home to.  You treat all of us like queens and kings.    You are a king yourself!

You still work hard, and with purpose, at your job, in your home, and at being a good man, husband, and father.  I admire you, I love you, I honor you.  Always be who you are Mr. Wonderful!  Happy Happy Day!  Happy Happy Life!!!devandkids

Happy New Birthday Ted

youngtedandrachaelJohn has a son, named Ted, who I would like to also lay claim to.  Saturday was his birthday, and I did not tell him Hey Happy Birthday, because, well, I kept thinking this would be written that day.  Well Ted! Happy belated Birthday.

Ted is…a fabulous chef, via his catering company, Chef Ted.  Caterer to the stars! A wonderful father, a fabulous husband, and a superb son.  (don’t think I don’t notice those daily phone calls, m’boy) I am told that he has the same moon at his home as everyone else,  and John tells me that as a boy he did well using the fireplace as a back drop for his singing.  I only know that I love him.

Happy Birthday Ted
