The Saddest Happy Day of My Life

“A” is us; “B” is my older son.

February 3rd has been one of the happiest days of my life for 19 years. It’s when my older son was born, making me a mom, the greatest “job” in the world.

But today my happy day is sad, because my #1 son is three hours away in San Antonio attending classes at the University of Texas branch there. This is the first time our family won’t celebrate his birthday together . . . in person.

#1 Skypes with us last night.

We will Skype with my older son tonight, as we did last night (he likes watching certain TV shows with us). I guess that’s the next best thing to being together, but not by a long shot. I miss my boy every day; today being his birthday just makes me miss him even more, if that’s possible.

Happy 19th birthday, my sweet #1 son! “See” you tonight!

  1. In many ways there are two births involved here, both of which you can be very proud. One is the birth of a child and the other is the birth of a son into the early stages of manhood. Nineteen and on – what a pleasure to watch and be involved in college graduation, career development, marriage, the birth of grand chidren, and on. You have a lot of happy times ahead – enjoy!

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday Number 1. love how you always find ways to be together even when you’re apart.
