Today is my son Tim's 23rd birthday! We did celebrate while he was home the weekend before Thanksgiving. Life sure goes by fast. I think we blinked somewhere, because he was born and then he was gone! When he turned 18 he enlisted in the army as it was something he always wanted to do. He has done a year in Iraq and has advanced in rank quite well as he is a Sergent in the Army Military Police. We are very proud of him but I tell you the last 4 and 1/2 years has been an experience. Although life has gone on, we long for the phone calls, the visits, and the end of his term! So even though we can't be with him today, we want him to know that we love him and are thinking of him on this his 23rd birthday. Thank you Tim for being our son.
