Five Fabulous Things About Lee

It's brother-in-law Lee's birthday today. On with the list, which everyone reading should feel free to augment in the comments.

1. Lee's a terrific conversationalist. He listens really well, has fun with debate but never lets disagreements get personal, and ranges widely in his subject of interest.

2. Lee is smart enough to see all my sister Colleen could offer as a lifetime partner, and was persistent enough to navigate the considerable ups and downs that upped and downed before these two got into the right configuration to make the big commitment to each other.

3. Lee doesn't let anything stop him. Whether he's decided to do a triathlon, get an advanced degree, or raise a wonderful family, Lee leaps over or smashes through any obstacle foolish enough to get in his path. He's got tremendous abilities in many fields, and he has the discipline and strategy to make anything he wants to happen, happen.

4. Lee keeps up great relationships with his family and wide circle of friends. He really pours himself into maintaining connections with the people who are important to him, and as a result he tends to keep his friends for a lifetime and is always gathering more.

5. Last but far from least, Lee is amazingly committed to his son whom he loves like nobody's business. Connor couldn't have asked for a dad who would do more for him, from fierce advocacy for Connor's needs to a great delight in bouncing Connor on the sofa till he laughs and laughs and laughs.

Happy birthday, Lee!

yeah, well, I'm biased, but she's right. Even if he is not capable of closing his dresser drawers, he's still great. And his little boy will giggle for him incessantly tonight. I've arranged it.
