I do not know where the time went in raising this precious boy. But I can't really call him a boy anymore, can I?
Shane is determined (some would call this stubborn) and has been all his life. He forges ahead, learns his lessons, and gets on with things. I am so very, very proud of the tremendous man that he's become. He has a tremendous work ethic, shows great care to his friends, and always says "love you" when I see or talk to him. This is a scary world for young people, but he met it head on and remains true to himself. I really love that quality in Shane. He is not afraid to be exactly who he is, and what a fine young man that makes him!!
We are taking him out to dinner this evening, and I couldn't be happier! I thought he'd want to spend his 21st birthday with friends, but I am thrilled that he chose us!!
Happy Birthday, Shane!! Your mom loves you like crazy!!
