This is my son Matt and he is 22 years old today!
Matt has a wonderful imagination and from the time he was very little, he would invent things. After he made a flame thrower out of his super soaker water cannon, I thought he might grow up to be a mad scientist (by the way, I still twitch funny as a result of this incident).
With his career as a designer of weapons of mass destruction thwarted, his talents were channelled to his art. Matt has a talent with a pencil and sketchbook and writes wonderful tales of fantasy. He could be another George Lucas. My wish for him is that he doesn’t give up on his dreams and that he finds the time to continue to imagine and create.
Matt found himself a nice girl he plans to marry this spring. Sue has moxie. She’s smart, has a great sense of humour and is a good mom to her six year old daughter. I like her. I think she is good for Matt.
Look at them together. They are young, happy and in love. My son is happy. What more can a mom ask for?
Happy birthday son! Love, Mom.
