When you see your new age written on paper cards tomorrow, you will probably think of something fascinating, like how the number 8 is just like the symbol for infinity if you look at it sideways. You've always been able to see the world in ways most people don't -- it seems sometimes as though you were born with the wisdom of a soul that has already lived an infinite number of years. When you were very little, I used to sit and look at you and wonder what it was that made you tick. I didn't realize then that the reason I couldn't figure you out was because I needed to look sideways, too. There's a breathtaking view inside the window to your bright and beautiful self; I've seen it now, and it has moved and changed me. Thank you for showing me how life looks from a lovely new perspective.
Happy 8th birthday, Will. I'm so proud of the creative, enthusiastic, funny, thoughtful boy you've grown into, and so excited to see where you'll go next in your world of endless possibilities. I'll always love you to infinity.
