Happy Birthday kiddo! I cannot believe you are 14 now. I still remember the day you were born so clearly. Your dad was so proud to have a boy! I miss you so much every day. I hope that one day very soon I will get to see you again. I have to say that you appear to be growing into a wonderful young man. I know that I have so much in your life, but just know that I think about you every day and I can't wait until I can see you again.
Growing up you were such a daredevil, it seemed that nothing scared you. Although you have scared me a few times. More than a few actually. You seem to live life to it's fullest. I love this about you and it scares me to death as well.
What can I say that will make these next few years a little easier? Probably not much. Just remember that your dad is there for to talk to as you continue your journey to being a man. I am here too just not as close as I would like to be. I hope to change that soon though. I would love to get you out here and see what kind of trouble you could cause. I'm sure grandpa would love it too.
Just remember kiddo, on this, your special day, that I am here thinking about you and hoping that this is your best birthday yet. I love you and I always will.
Happy Birthday TJ,
