April 26 is my son Tim's 37th birthday. He was born on the first day of finals week my second year of law school. I graduated #2 in my law school class, but I guess I flunked family planning (but in a GOOD way).
We've come a long way since this picture was taken in June of 1977. We were standing in front of the mobile home where we lived at that time in Pierre, South Dakota. I was working for the State of South Dakota as a rookie Assistant Attorney General in the Appeals Division. Was I ever that young?
Today I am reminded of the beautiful Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac) song, Landslide:
Stevie Nicks - Landslide - The Soundstage (2009)
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Mmm, I don't know.
Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I'm getting older too.
Happy Birthday, Timmer!
