Happy Birthday My Son

Today is my son's 43rd birthday.  I cannot believe he is 43!  I don't feel old enough to have a son 43!  When did this happen?  Where did the time go?  It seems like only yesterday that he was four.
(Eric on the bottom right side.  He definitely looks thrilled to be there.)
Eric was not born under my heart but he certainly was born in it.  I loved him from the first moment I laid eyes on he. He was the most captivating little boy I have ever seen.  He knew how to wrap a lady around his little finger and keep her there.   He was four when his dad and I married.  I loved being his mother.  He was all boy and into everything.  I watched him grow from a precious child, to a good young man, to an amazing Christian man in the past 43 years and I am so proud of him I could pop.  I would love for you to take a quick walk with me down memory lane and get to know what a wonderful father, husband, son, Christian that Eric is. 
Graduation - 1988 - 20 years after his father graduated.
Family vacation to Los Angeles with a quick stop off for a prime photo op at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Eric is sporting a mullet here.
