A very happy birthday to your son! And lets not forget, this is your birthing day, which is a very special day for you and all moms. We never forget that day do we? I agree, you dont seem/sound old enough to have a 40 year old child. Child , god do we ever say adults when we have kids NO, they are always our children even when they are grown.

Please laugh. A tear shed is OK, too. But overall be happy. Much aloha to both of you. Every once i awhile I wonder about people who seem to have something in common with me. I knew a young man when I lived in Hawaii who would be about the same age. It is so difficult to do what you are doing, and I think of you.

Congratulations, Wasabi, laugh and cry with joy and happiness. Ľou'll always be his Mom/Mum and you will always worry about him no matter what milestone he reaches. That's our job---we're programmed with a worry gene for our children--it's also called love. Bring out the candles and fire extiguishers!!!!
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

My oldest will be 44 in december..The time has flown, but I look at him and it's like yesterday,that they put him in my arms.He was and is very special and dear to me and I feel that each child we are fortunate enough to call our son or daughter, were chosen just for us. You, my dear lady, must have been one of the ones special enough to be given the care of a special, beautiful, son..You've done a wonderful job..Wasabi..Bless you both.

Thank you so much for your kind words, everyone. The family was over to celebrate Eddie's big day and he had fun listening to the stories about the day he was born. He loved his ice cream cake and all the goodies from the family. Tonight I will cook his favorite meal, breaded mahi mahi, fried noodles and green beans.

You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.
