It was nine years ago today, that this Little Man made his way into our lives. He had a hard time getting here. It was a rough month. His grandmother died few weeks before he arrived and his great-grandmother would suffer a tragic stroke, that would change her life forever. Still, he persevered and now, we know why.
We have had nine years to get to know him and who he is. He is too smart for his own good, and we are learning how to channel all this energy and smarts into something, hopefully that will be of use to him Someday.
He is polite, loving, specific, and self-confident. He loves football, rock and roll, shrimp, and talking. Spend some time with him and you will start questioning most things you believe. He can ask questions for hours. Good questions, questions that matter. He believes in Jesus and has his on take on religion. Not too much he doesn't have an opinion on. He can convince you the sky is yellow.
Knowing him has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. Praying for him is a hoot. He talks fast and long, keeps me on my toes.
Happy Birthday Gage, I can't wait to see what you capture on your camera. To see the world through your lens is going to be a blast, I can't wait. Love you buddy...
