Happy Birthday to my first baby

For a mother the first moments, and first day of her baby's life stays
vividly in her brain and heart for good.  This is my firstborn's
birthday, and I'm happy that he is not here in the city heat, but
up in the country by a clean lake with his family.  

We had a lovely talk today, and that was wonderful.  I had
to teach, so couldn't have done the cake, and stack of presents
thing anyway.  But it was really strange not to be there to see
him blow some candles out, to have a meal together.

All of that will happen when the vacation is over, and he comes
back to Toronto.  In the meantime we sang Happy Birthday, and
thought about our baby -- now a wonderful, kind, grown up,
talented, happy man -- all day.  

Happiest of birthdays Christopher.
