Bon anniversaire

“Of course, you won’t officially be 23 for another 44 minutes as of this writing.

The number 23 has other significance in our family.
My mother’s birthday is June 23.
I was 23 inches long when born.
She was 23 when she had me.

You didn’t come into this world easily.
You gave your mother and I quite a challenge-
far more for her of course.
But it all worked out well in the end.
Far better than just well.

Anybody can win a Grammy.
I won you too.
I’m far prouder of the latter.”

-David P. DeMar, Jr.
