To the sweet little boy who forever changed my life so many years ago … who isn’t such a little boy anymore and would be mortified to know I publicly called him “sweet.” Have the happiest of 16th birthdays, sweetheart. I’m so thankful that I was given the gift of you. Few hearts as young as yours hold such capacity for love and compassion. The world is lucky to have you. And I’m lucky to be one of your biggest fans.

Much love, ~ M
