    I must admit, I am a little emotional today! Our son, Ben, our only child, turned 18 today! What a sometimes tumultuous but always amazing 18 years it has been!. Yolanda and I are both very proud of the young man Ben has grown into and how he approaches life and cares for his family and friends (even if his room is always a mess!).

    It’s pretty corny but 18 years ago, in the first few days after he was born, I wrote him this little song…

    Little Man

    Little man, there’s many things
    That I’d like to say to you
    As you squeeze my finger in your hand.
    Little man, there’s so much
    That I’d like to share with you.
    I hope you’ll let me be your friend.

    Little man, the world is yours
    So hold your head up high,
    Take care of those you love
    And always look life in the eye,
    Little man, you’ve gotta give your dreams a try!

    Little man, your tiny hands
    Reach out and touch my face –
    I see so much of me in you.
    Little man, your big bright eyes
    Look up and into mine
    And I know there’s nothing you can’t do!

    Little man, the world is yours
    So hold your head up high,
    Take care of those you love
    And always look life in the eye,
    Little man, you’ve gotta give your dreams a try!

    ‘Cause if you give up dreaming
    You’ll never know what you can do.
    Little man, you’ve got so much ahead of you.
    So dream your dreams, find your star,
    Don't let it slip away,
    Little man, you'll go somewhere someday!
    Little man, my little friend,
    Reach out and take my hand.
    Little man, I'll help show you the way.
    Little man, my little friend,
    You’re gonna grow to be a man
    And little man, I know you’ve got it made!


    Happy Birthday, mate! I'll buy you a beer tonight!
