Happy 16th to my Corazón

My eldest is now 16. Old enough to get a driver's license and old enough to get a job.

Seems just yesterday, he was a little boy learning how to ride a bike and learning how to write his name.

And I was the center of his universe.

Now he's playing music at the sonatina level and creating the most beautiful art. He's preparing for a life that will one day be outside of ours. I know I still have a few more years with him, but my heart still aches thinking about when that time will come.

For now, I will do my very best to guide him, teach him, and help him be prepared to fly when he's ready to leave my nest.
