727: 21 Years Ago

Shakespeare says that there are seasons to life. For me, the longest and most powerful season started 21 years ago today.

Our son was born.

I joked to my wife that ‘kids’ were a 20 year project, then we’ll do something else.

It was a joke, but in truth the ultimate goal of any good parent is to make themselves redundant … or perhaps it’s better to say … make their child strong and self-sufficient.

Jack has grown from a blue-eyed baby into a strong, caring, hardworking man who’s funny as hell.

Happy Birthday, son.

And don’t worry … however strong you grow I’ll always be your Dad.
