This is 32 for son #2

Happy Birthday, Corey Glaser!

And what a year it has been. You have been busy!

You have been in our family for so long that my othermother status comes with the joy of watching you grow into the man you are today (this is starting to sound like a bar mitzvah speech).

This year has been quite something. Of course there is the obvious big milestone, but it is the subtle things you do that have made such a huge impact.

I have watched the way ‘you move’ – as the Trinidadians would say. How you care for all of those you love. But I have also witnessed the graceful power of your kindness to strangers. How you pivot at a moment’s notice and jump in to help people. And you do it with the utmost of humility and that charming brand of ‘it’s no big deal’ that makes it even more special. This, my sweet, is a quality like no other.

I have said it many times before, but I will say it again. I am so very grateful that my daughter found a man who calmly shares her life and makes everything just a little better than it was before.

And pretty soon (queue the uncontrollable emotion), you will set an incredible example for a very lucky little boy.

You are simply becoming more Corey with each year. And that is a gift for, not only yourself, but all of us who love you.

Happy Birthday!
