3 Years Down
Three years is nothing. It is a blink, a blur, a nap. It is an eternity.
There are lessons in love, exercises in futility and moments fleeting. Limits are pushed, met and exceeded. Regret sits in one cup of the scale and happiness the other. You can only hope that the former proves all the lighter.
Three inscribed on a birthday card is milestone and melancholy. It is doors shut and others opened. It is a smile on a little boy's face and a promise of many more to come.
It is bittersweet to behold and sweet to embrace.
My little boy is one step closer to big. Today we reflect, and today we brace for adventure.
Happy Birthday, Zane.
