Josh and I talk a lot about the two of us being a team. We’ve had that recurring conversation since he was small. He seems to gain confidence in himself knowing that I need him sometimes and it also makes him feel safe when life gets a little scary. Our birthday celebration today was a “team” effort, just the two of us here physically, but he got lots of love from friends and family elsewhere. He loved having family members call his cell phone to sing “Happy Birthday” to him and when I read comments from his Facebook page to him he got a big laugh! He also knows there’s another celebration scheduled for Saturday. It was a great day all around. Thanks everybody for helping me make him happy. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing him smile and hearing him laugh – even when he’s laughing at me!
