There aren't many things that are certain in life.
For me, one thing is certain At 12:00am on December 9th, my cellphone will ring.
It'll be my mom calling me to wish me a happy birthday!
It never fails. She knows that I never liked for people to make a big fuss about my birthday. She told me.
"Boy, we're gonna celebrate every year. That's what you are supposed to do. I don't care if you don't want nothing. You'll at least get a cake and a card."
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the best birthday gift that I ever received. It was December 10th, 2006. My right hand man...the man who runs my house...the man who I haven't been able to win a stare-down with...the life of the party...the youngest in charge...Brandon! Look how you've grown over the years. Daddy loves you, man.
