I'm afraid that I can't let the day pass away without writing a little something about the meaning of today.
Today is April 16th.
To some that might mean one thing or another, but to me, this means that my best friend is now 21.
It means he could gamble in Las Vegas if he wanted to
It means he is no longer the same age as me
It means that he is the age he will be when he comes home
It means he has had two birthdays in Puerto Rico
All wonderful things.
It means this is the last time Cody has a birthday that he doesn't receive birthday kisses.
I'm sure he is fine today with his lack of birthday kisses.
In fact, I'm sure it didn't even cross his mind.
It sure as heck crossed mine.
and you know what? Next year, I'm pretty sure it will cross his mind too,
and thats good enough for me.
