Dear 9 year old Lucas,

It’s a special day for such a special lad.  I see you growing up – growing in your understanding and your knowledge of the world and yet keeping all your gentleness and empathy for others.  In fact, if we could bottle “Essence of Lucas” and sell it, the world would become a nice place (and I would become very rich!)

It is all too easy in a bigger family to pigeon hole people and say “Oh, that one’s the noisy one or that one’s the people person” and you are so much more than just the one thing – you are considerate, fun, clever, gentle, inventive, conscientious, loving, strong willed, emotional, beautiful, quiet, thoughtful and so much more.  In fact you are all things.  And you are all things to me my lovely boy.
