Recently, I made the mistake of telling you the story of you, including my initial desire of wanting a girl.
You know, so that as siblings, you could do all the things sisters do ...
Share a room ...
And secrets ...
Turns out you didn't have any idea what I was talking about.
You heard "I wanted a girl," and that was it.
It wasn't like that. You weren't a disappointment. You were a happy surprise. I had no experience with brothers, and no idea what an amazing experience having a boy can be.
You were a wonder six years ago today. You are a wonder still.
I know you probably can't take my word for it. My words are always be tangled up with convoluted thoughts
But, as a dear friend once said: "Silas is golden."
And that's pretty much how I've thought of you ever since.
If you don't believe it's true, you can see for yourself.
