Happy Birthday, Jason & Bean!



Children are the hands by which
we take hold of heaven

~ Henry Ward Beecher



Today is my son's 29th birthday.

Jason, who is a graphic artist, and Bean, who is a dog, live in Florida, so we won't be able to celebrate with him. He will, however, be tops in my thoughts today as I remember the joy I felt 29 years ago when he finally made it into this world. He was five weeks late, and we joked that he wasn't took keen on braving the cold, Ohio winter. ;-)


Jason was a good baby, a great kid, and is a wonderful adult ("Adult!" YIKES!). He's very much our child. We see ourselves in things he says and does. He gets his love for animals, especially dogs, from his mom. He rescued Bean from a Cincinnati shelter in 2001, and he decided that they would have the same birthday.

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JASON & BEAN.

I hope Jason and Bean see this post! What a lovely tribute to them both...

Happy Birthday, guys! I guess the thunder we hear in Naples is you celebrating?

Your birthday collages are so great, Chris. I really like all of them. And by the way, my 32-year-old Lamont was a solid month late in arriving; Leland was only three days late.
