13 years ago tomorrow, my son Jake was born
my brown boy is what I first thought when I saw him.
He was only with us for a few weeks,
when we unplugged the ventilator, we new we would only have a few more hours with him,
possibly a day.
He lasted until the evening.
I was 31
If I even ever had any religion, it was forever changed thirteen years ago.
When I was six, the most important person in my life left me,
then six months later another important person left me,
and my life was forever changed.
I guess my thoughts on today, the day before Jakes birthday
go into the world every day as if it were your last, love every day as if it were your last
you are in charge of your choices
