"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOEY
Happy Birthday my sweet boy. Almost exactly 9 years ago, you scared your dad and I to death by arriving early and on your own terms. I remember that little guy you were and can hardly believe the handsome, strong young man I look at is the same person. You've grown into such an amazing young man. You have one of the kindest hearts I know and I love the way you stick up for the underdog. You have an incredible imagination and I love the tools and weapons and gadgets you create and the way you inspire my own creativity. I am thrilled with the way you are blossoming academically this year. You are showing such a talent for mathematics and you seem to be developing a strong written voice. Your writing is flourishing. I am amazed and awed that your dad and I have been so blessed and lucky to be your parents. Happy Birthday Joey. I love you.
