Happy Birthday LE

It is the birthday of one of my sons. He is 33 today. Not sure if he has a new girl in his life. It's been awhile. My son's standard about women is I believe quite steep, I think he might have a difficult time finding the right one. First off, he says he is not ready yet financially to have a relationship.

Happy Birthday my son!. I wish you continued adventures which is what really life is all about.. But whatever You do, make sure it makes You happy and gives deeper meaning to your life. Godbless You son. I love you!
