Happy 30th Birthday Peter

It’s my Son’s 30th birthday today and I wanted to dedicate this blog to him.

My Dearest Son. Happy Birthday to you. Today you turn 30.

Where did the time go it seems like yesterday I was holding you in my arms in the hospital. Born on Thanksgiving Day and it was a day I truly gave thanks for you in my life.

It is very exciting as a parent to watch your children grow into adults and watch their gifts come out throughout the years.

I’m so lucky and proud that you chose me to be your Mom and to realize the wonderful gifts that you share with our world and the amazing person you are.

Here’s what I see when I look at you Peter.


Your life hasn’t been an easy one this I know. It was taken off course with your accident where we almost lost you. You struggled to find your way back on course with a strength that only someone with your gifts could get out of still smiling and not bitter.

Sense of Family

When I was double blessed and your brother came along it was great to see you two develop into a tight family together. I could never have asked for a better Son to protect your brother and to always be in his life. You both make a team that is unstoppable.


You got the Reesor genes when it comes to your light heartedness. Your smile and your continuous lightness that you share with others and your quick wit. When I think of you I always think of my Mother, your Grandma, in spirit as there is a softness in both of you that seems to be the same.

Handsome and Humble

You have always been a handsome guy and the older you get the more handsome you get. It’s one thing to be handsome but it’s another to glow when you smile.

Non Judgemental

I know it’s not easy to have a Mom that is different but I’ve heard that the first things out of your mouth when talking about me is “My Mom’s a Psychic”! How wonderful that you accept me the way I am. Another gift you have of non-judgement.


Not too many people know this about you but you are extremely creative. When left with a notebook and a pencil eventually you will have a wonderful book filled with beautiful pictures. Incredible!


From a young age you were gifted with numbers. You add them in your head faster then someone could even say them. You didn’t need calculators or computers the numbers danced in your head. By the time I would have put something in a calculator you already had the answer. This is something that was innate inside of you. Such a gift.


You have had your friends since the beginning of your life and continue to make new ones. It amazes me really that the whole group continue until this day. I do know it takes a good friend to have friends so I know you are a good friend to many including me.


It takes a certain confident man to be sensitive and this is a gift I have seen in you many times. Thoughtful to others and sensitive to other people.


No one can say this is not true. You can walk into a room and light it up with your charm.


When Peter was little we would go downtown and it was always a good idea to bring lots of change because he spent the whole time asking for change to give to everyone on the street. It was so cute. I remember as he started to get a little older (8 maybe) he would always ask for instead of a present for a donation to be made. No one ever did and then once my sister did it for him and he said it was the best present he ever got. When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he said a Sick Kid’s lottery ticket. Such a sweetie.


I guess I could go on forever about the gifts you share with the world but I guess what I wanted to say more than anything is I love you with all my Heart and I’m so proud you are my Son!

Happy 30th Birthday Peter.

Love MOM
