The Big 2-1

It was one of the main reasons he didn’t want to go.  He wanted to be here, with his friends, to celebrate his 21st birthday.  That’s one of those milestone birthdays.

Instead, he’s several time zones away, with people he doesn’t yet know very well.  It almost seems like yesterday when he was my little blond-haired baby, with the sunny disposition and his two different colored eyes.  Now he’s in Germany, still way too angry over a couple of idiot pickpockets who tried to rip him off.

It’s still September 7th here.  But over there, 6 hours ahead, it’s already your birthday.  So Happy Birthday, Middle Son J.  We all sent you cards, but we have no idea when you’ll get them.  Please stay calm.  Please stay safe.  We’ll celebrate your next birthday in style.
