The years teach much which the days never knew.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my son Dakota.
Growing up with Aspergers has presented him with challenges that, at times, have seemed difficult to overcome but he has matured into an amazing young man with a good heart and a quirky sense of humor.
I actually made this card back in May when I was putting together a tutorial for the on-line magazine Through the Craft Room Door.
When Dakota saw the card, he asked me for it.
I told him it was intended someone else, which is was.
He was so disappointed, that I made another card for the other person and set this one aside for him. Can't wait to see his face when he opens his card!
