Son, I was down because I have little to give you, but, I was thinking of what I could pass onto you. I know it’s not Christmas, but it is soon to be your 37th Birthday. I wanted you to know, that I was thinking of you, today, with tears of joy, that God gave me a son, so long ago. You are a son, a husband, and a father, and some day, if you are fortunate, you will be a grandfather. I hope and pray this day that God will bless you all the days of your life with love, peace and joy, and lessons learned from the pain or sorrows, in life. Of which, I am sure, that I have caused some of them. For all the times I failed you, forgive me. I love you and am proud to call you, Son. Happy Birthday, Craig, Love; Mom.
