Happy 19th Birthday!!!

Today my oldest baby turns 19.   Nineteen! Where on earth did the time go?  There is no way I have a baby that old. I got married at 19~ wasn't that just yesterday?

I really was doing better these last few weeks, adjusting to him being out of the house and only communicating by letters. He's doing great in boot camp and seems to be enjoying it.  But today, I'm a bundle of emotions. I hate the thought of him being without all of us on his birthday and not being able to celebrate.  I couldn't even send him a birthday card because he said it would make him stand out and would probably get more sand pit time.  I did write him a birthday letter though.   

Here are all my boys...
 In a month and half he will be a real Marine and we are so proud of him.
If each of you could wish my Cameron a Happy Birthday, maybe he will "feel"  it and have a great day. Thank you.                          I love you Cameron, Happy Birthday pumpkin!!



  1. Happy Birthday to Cameron!!! I know how hard it is to see them growing up like that, the years go by much too fast. I was married at 18 which was almost 37 years ago and my boys are 34 and 31...doesn't seem possible at all! lol Anyway, best of luck to Cameron in boot camp:-)

    Here's a little poem I'm sharing with everyone today...

    This is Halloween

    Goblins on the doorstep,
    Phantoms in the air,
    Owls on witches' gate posts,
    Giving stare for stare.

    Cats on flying broomsticks,
    Bats against the moon,
    Stirring round of fate-cakes,
    With a solemn spoon.

    Whirling apple parings,
    Figures draped in sheets,
    Dodging, disappearing,
    Up and down the streets.

    Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
    Shadows on a screen,
    Shrieks and starts and laughter--
    This is Halloween!

    Happy Halloween to you and yours:-) xo
