To My Bubba
Today you are officially a teenager.
You have not been my little boy in quite a few years, except in my heart.
Today you look me eye-to-eye, and the day you are taller than I am is drawing quite close.
Today you are on the edge of being a young man,
with tomorrows that are even brighter
than your most wonderful yesterdays.
You are one of my brightest stars,
and that's why I call you
I love you more than words could ever say,
and thank God
that He chose to surprise me
