Happy 32nd Birthday Mark 2

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Today we celebrate my oldest 32nd birthday.  It may be that many people think of birthdays as another day of the year, but for me they are much more than that, especially when that day is your only son's birthday.  I can hardly believe where time has gone.  I remember so vividly the moment we met.  And now, now you are quite the adult ~ a husband, a father...  I'm sorry if I'm a little sentimental but I think that your birthday is the perfect moment to tell you all the things I don't tell you in a normal day, to remind you that you are important to me.

As all mothers do, I had goals, dreams and wishes for you.  I had as you can imagine, dozens of them.  But on this 32nd celebration the following is what matters most...  Recently a couple of your co-workers told me how much they enjoy working with you and what a kind, fun, intelligent, hard-working, and dedicated man you are [ENTER PROUD PARENT MOMENT!]  I could not be more proud of you.  My heart overflows with love and pride.  It has been my honor to be your mom and I thank God for you each day.  I will be forever grateful that He chose me to be your mom, giving me a front row seat to watch you become who you are today.  And I will also be forever grateful to you for allowing me to use that front row seat.  You are a part of my heart, tied together by a cord of respect, love and affection forever.  Happy Birthday Son ~ Love, Mom!
