Three years ago today, a bridge was born. Ames led me to the Father. He brought me closer to his daddy and his brothers and their mom. He taught me how to ask for help and how to ask for forgiveness. I’m so honored and grateful to call him son.
We’re starting the day off with our traditional Kincaid kid birthday breakfast – cinnamon rolls! Then we’ll play around the house and eventually try to bake a cake together. The only thing I’ve ever baked is banana nut bread. I had to google confectioner sugar and borrow a mixer. Regardless, I’m forging ahead for the sake of my son’s only birthday wish – a “fockwutt cake.” This afternoon, we’ll cheer Lucas on at his last football game of the season. We’ve also invited our families back to our house afterwards, where we’ll order pizzas and hopefully enjoy some cake.
Happy Birthday, Ames Emmanuel!
