Over the last couple of days, I have been thinking about the past ten years. It doesn't feel like you're ten. You seem so much older, so much wiser. But then I think to myself that you can't be older than ten. You were just a baby not so long ago.
You amaze me every day. You are so generous, loving, and understanding. You are a brilliant young man, and you never cease to amaze me or your dad. We are so blessed to have you in our lives.
You and I have been through so much together. I think that as much as I have taught you, you have also taught me many things. You are still my favorite cooking partner and road trip buddy.
Today you are ten. Double digits. You are growing into such a wonderful person.
As you celebrate your day, and your life, please remember that you are deeply loved and cared for. We will always be in your corner, cheering you on, joking with you, and supporting you.
Happiest of birthdays, Chase.
