This is a first; the birthday blog post for my son-
in-law. If you know our relationship you totally get the strike through in that sentence.
To quote my daughter, “You should be with someone that makes you your best self.”
Forget about her, Corey makes me my best self! I could not dream up a better partner for my child, or a more perfect soul to seamlessly melt into our family. He has inspired me to be a better mother-in-law. I have learned how to listen and guide when asked, and shut the hell up when not.
He lives gently. With strength and grace. And the most positive, even-tempered attitude I have ever witnessed in another human.
When the world spins out of control on every level imaginable, having him around is a godsend.
And he cooks!
Today he turns the big 3-0. Hard time for a milestone birthday. Or maybe not. He so easily rolls with what is, and makes the best of what can be. Always. But especially now.
Happy birthday to my second son. I wish for you all that you dream of.
Keep dreaming. Love you to the moon.
