For Max

It’s Max’s 13th birthday today, and despite the fact that we don’t see much of each other at the moment, I wanted to celebrate the good things about being a dad and about Max.

He is a wonderful, playful and compassionate young boy.  I always remember his teachers telling me he would be the first to comfort someone when they were sad, or to help in an argument.

I miss the good times we used to have, but, I know in time we will have a relationship again.  I think he knows I am here for him whenever he is ready.

Happy birthday Max.
