Where did all the time go?
My so-called "baby" turns 14 today!
14 years ago this morning - Matthew Amos Durst came into my life. With his little sheepish grin and soul piercing eyes, Matthew keeps our family hopping and laughing!
Like his older brother, Matthew seems to live in a pair of hockey skates. He took to the ice at the young age of 3, for skating lessons were part of the curriculum at the Minnesota day care he went to. With grace and a little bit of elegance (I know, that isn't too manly of a description), he looks at home on the ice.
As he continues to grow up and mature, there is a humorous side of Matthew. He can keep you in stitches - laughing until you cry!
With Matthew's good nature, he definitely surrounds himself with friends - whether it be on his hockey team or his school mates. He has a leadership sense about him and a good heart for true friendship!
I know that family is also important to Matthew. He has a good relationship with his older brother - for they definitely look out for each other!
Matthew, you are growing up to be a fine young man. Not only in size (started out as 7lb 9oz and 21.5 inches long...and 14 years later is 5'8" and 135lbs)...but I am very proud of the person you are becoming! I love you very much and hope that you have a wonderful day today! Good luck with your hockey games this weekend!
Until next time...remember, take care and
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
