a view through a lens.

Morgan – Six

“I want to play hockey.” I remember the day you told me about a year ago. We spent that final part of the winter going to the outdoor rink whenever we could on weekends so you could work on your skating, and internally I was thinking “maybe this will pass over the summer”. I played hockey as a boy, and I knew how time consuming it can become. Throughout the summer, not a word, but then on a warm day in late August you asked if you could go to open skating. Almost on queue you decided it was time to start getting ready for the season. Equipment was purchased and we started our new adventure. Hockey Player.

To say I couldn’t be prouder is an understatement. Watching you skate, I could only imagine that I was seeing exactly what my mom and dad saw when I started playing. A little boy, determined to succeed, growing stronger and stronger with every stride. You simply love to skate, and I love watching you. We’ll see where this hockey thing goes, but right now you love it.

Beyond hockey you grew a lot this year. You couldn’t be more different than your brother. No interest in Legos, Beyblades, or video games (except your hockey game), but rather you love to use your imagination. My favorite day of the week is Saturday where you and I wake up early, you ask for a cup of hot chocolate, and it’s only a matter of time until you are off imagining. Policeman, soldier, fireman, doctor, or spy, ever weekend there is an adventure waiting. It must be exciting to live your life. I know it’s exciting to watch. Thanks for being you. Every day you remind me I should be living life to it’s fullest. Thanks for being such a wonderful little boy. Happy Birthday buddy!
