Double Digits


I remember ten years ago today, lying in a hospital bed waiting for your arrival.  I had no idea what to expect (I’m sure you didn’t either).  Luckily labor went by quickly, just a few hours, a couple pushes, and my life changed forever.

It’s hard to imagine life without you in it.  You fill up the days with your ideas, stories and interests.  You challenge the world around you, which I like.  You are headstrong, like someone else I know too well.  You persist until you find the answers…don’t  ever stop doing that.

It’s easy to feel a bit nostalgic about the little guy you used to be, but I’m finding it’s even easier to feel proud of the one you’ve become.

May all your dreams come to life as you are truly the hope and promise of the future.

Happy 10th Birthday!!!

Love,  Mom

    What wonderful sentiment and what a handsome boy. I am sure the 10 years have flown, my children are all grown up and when we celebrate their birthdays even today I love to go over their birth and what a wonderful thing it was. I am sure you will save this beautiful sentiment for him.

    It’s always astonishing to watch them grow so fast right before your eyes, isn’t it?

    He looks like a real heart throb to me, although he’ll probably never know it. And, stubborn can be good…

    The Old Goat tried a Pinot Noir this weekend and rather liked it!
