My best gift on Valentine's Day

Among my three kids, Jag is probably the most under-rated and most under-estimated. Compared to his two younger sisters, they are at par when it comes to academics. Though Jag is only an average student, he seemed to excel in other fields. Actually, he was running a sub-50 min. 10K when he was a 6th grader, a frustrated rapeller, a good basketball player, and an aspiring Rakista. Last Valentine's Day was a great manifestation of his other God-given talent. After their school's Foundation Day program, I was surprised when my only son handed me a yellow rose and two medals. He was the champion in the poster-making contest, and bested in Chess beating even those fourth year students. That was a great surprise son. You made me prouder even more. I love you...
