He Just Turned Twenty One . . .


can it be true
can it be
this one once wee
who would bounce
on my knee

 just had a birthday
which we can't believe

yes indeed
he is no longer
 little one
he just turned 
twenty one

this fine lad
had a start not so smooth
yet life came on strong
and stopped not a tad

what the
future might bring
trials and trips
kept our ears in a ring

downs turned to ups
life had its say
hope holds our heart
 good came his way

just some
of his 

cody and his family
skiing and boarding at
boyne mountain
a few years back

the trip this year found them
the one and only
huge dump 
 michigan snowfall
two feet of snow
fell while they skied

senior year spring break
cody and dad 
winter park

granny would rather he didn't ride this
can't win when my son likes the same
~ ~ ~
this fine lad made his
twenty one year old goal
ten thousand
saved and banked

living on the water
makes summer
the best time of all

ready for the elements

nailing this boy for some photos was quite the feat
this is one he sent for a treat

more college soon
 trip out west planned with friends
plenty of fun in the sun for the summer

happy birthday cody
be wise
be safe
be kind

let me know
when you are ready
for more
up north

~ ~ ~
may your
pockets be heavy
and your heart
be light
may good luck pursue you
each morning and night

irish blessing
