Today is Sam's 17th 🎉 Birthday.
Which is crazy.
I keep thinking about ten years down the road.
Hoping I can limp through the next thirty-six hundred days and see them settled in their lives.
We went to a party for my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary and Sam and Jake were getting a lot of questions about what they want to do.
"We're enjoying our childhood," was their pat answer.
But the gatherings are amazing to me now. I see nieces and nephews who are in their 30's...
...already settled into their jobs and marriages...
...and I think back to when they were 10!
My in-laws were fun to watch at such a party.
"What time are you renewing your vows?" I asked my father-in-law as soon as I arrived.
"Get the hell away from me," he said.
So, I asked the same question to my mother-in-law.
"I'd rather shoot him," she said, with a laugh.
That's how it goes, but they aren't fooling anyone.
You don't get to 60 years without a few battles and a lot of love.
I watched Sam play with his brothers at the party. They were making fun of each other, and laughing.
Happy Anniversary to my in-laws!
Happy Birthday to Sam!
