Teen….

I’ve held water…cupped in my hands… alongside many cool mountain streams… Trying to hold it long enough to drink… to absorb… to quench.  But the water runs more quickly between unsealed fingers and palms than I can partake… So, I simply keep cupping the water….

Baker… 13 years old… I watch him grow… taller… older… and the days slip through my fingers… and I keep reaching down… cupping the moments… all I can get….  Deep down, I realize, that I’ll never quench this thirst… the desire to absorb all that he is… 

Happy 13th Birthday, Baker…. I can’t believe you’re a teenager…. You are such an unbelievable joy…. I’m blessed to have you.
