The Big Picture

Mom Dot Does It Again.

Today is Silas' 8th birthday and Mom Dot, at age 88, recalled (completely from memory, I might add) a poem  she wrote many years ago for another little boy's birthday.  You will see, it is a perfect fit. 

Eight years ago today
A mighty hero came our way
With fist tight-clenched
And face of red
"I'll take you on, old world,"
he said.  

Through the years 
He has kept his vow.
Though sometimes ill, often afraid
He seldom faltered, never swayed.

We know that in the years to come
That dauntless spirit will prevail
And though skies get dark
And the seas get rough
He'll keep his craft a sail. 

He'll win the world, you'll see
Bolstered by the pride, 
The prayers and the love
Of his dad and me. 

I couldn't have said it better myself.  Happy birthday, Silas!

Silas a few months ago, just after he said, "When I grow up I'm going to have a great job singing like Tony Bennett so I can sit around and drink smoothies all day."
