I will keep this short and sweet (sort of). Happy Birthday Sagie שגיא, for the last 19 years I am a fortunate mom to have you as my kid. Both daddy and I wish you a life full of health, happiness and countless adventures as you explore the world. You are truly a beautiful human being and we love you! Though you imagined yourself at this moment somewhere else, accomplishing some goals you set for yourself, but, you are here, so get your beautiful self from the basement upstairs and give us a huge hug STAT!

Small photo at the top left is at Sagie's bar mitzvah at the Western Wall, Summer 2005, in Jerusalem, Israel, he just turned 13. The last two photos were taken just a few days ago, August 2011, at home, here in the US of A, just as Sagie takes off next weekend for his sophomore year at UMASS, Amherst.
