Ten Things of Thankful: These Things Remind Me of You

I'm thankful I think of you every time I see (or hear, as the case may be): 

1.  Transformers




2.  A trumpet



3.  A song from The Fantasticks



4.  A red felt hat



5.  A Pink Floyd CD



6.  Jelly bellies



7.  Anything Japanese



8.  A statue of a lamassu
9.  Anyone talking about med school
10.  Anyone talking about their first baby

Happy birthday to you, my first-born. We might have been were all sleep-deprived those first few months, but you opened our eyes to this wonderful thing called parenthood.  We love you and are so proud of you!
