Birthdays, a study in compare/contrast

One day last Fall it was my daughter's birthday. And it was a happy day. I remember thinking, "Oh, is this what they are supposed to feel like?" I felt so alive. The day was dynamic - not static. There was no time or need for reflection or contemplation. Just fun and joy.

It was so unlike my son's birthdays which are always full of sadness and regret for me.

"full of regret" I'm just entering the regret. I know I made the best decision at the time. But damn it it was still a bad decision.
