A Special Birthday

Today, my second-born son, had a birthday. It was his 40th year on the planet.

I have posted all his photographs back to front. I began with now, & mostly moved backwards through his life.

This taken recently, at a Halloween party. We still feel he looks too young to be 40!

This was while he was on holiday, in Switzerland, which he loved. I think this is the Giger Bar"

Switzerland again. His heart was broken, but he did love the country.

Retreating back to the past, here his is with Gom at Dad's day, at Playcentre.
And later, of course, here he is with is niece at his Grandmother's funeral. It seems we are doing the time warp here.


Here he was at his niece's birth. Doting Uncle, which he has always been. I think she was about 4 days old in this photo.


Here, he is with his sister sitting on a Moeraki Boulder. They were such good friends in their childhood, & remain close today.




Here, is my little Pisces Angel. This photographer loved him, & loved to take his photo. Son B got a little impatient, & was fed up, by the time this was taken!!




And here is my favourite photo of them together as little ones. It is almost as if his little sister is whispering a secret in his ear. Perhaps she was.
Neither of them can remember.
This, the final backwards pic.
Proud Mum, with her little son.
He was unwell, hence no smile.
His first cold.
How could my perfect son,
have some sort of infection
Invadinig his system?
Where is the ''god" in all of this??

Happy Birthday, Our Son

We love you, & always will!!

Happy birthday to your son.

I love the photo of you with him as a baby. I always find it a bit sad in a way when I see these photos through the ages - becuase it makes the passage of time just seem TOO swift.

Meggie .... Maybe the 'god in all this' maybe is to be found in the unconditional love you have for your handsome son?

Looks a little like Johnny Depp!

Hmmmmm ....
