A Milestone

Dear Shalom,

Happy Belated Hatchday. A few days ago, you celebrated your first decade. We have been together for 10 years, although it doesn't feel that long. You have been by my side through the highs and lows, asking nothing more than to be loved and to love back. That has to be the greatest gift Mankind could ask for, and I thank you for this lesson in humility daily.

Because I am only human, I could never give you what you have given me. But that is the beauty of it. You do not hold any expectations or obligations from Mankind, except that we live up to the best of our potential to those around us.

Here is to another decade of Love, darling. I love you.

Your Mama
