My love, my first born, the beautiful soul that made me a mom… I wish you the absolute happiest of birthdays.
18, one of those milestone birthdays. I know you probably feel very “adult” right now and in a lot of ways you are and have been for sometime, but I encourage you to hold on to your youth where you can. Have fun, be silly, enjoy being 18. Don’t rush ahead.
I’m so proud of you for all you have become and all that you are. I love you so much.
Easter 2022 was spent having an Easter Egg hunt for the puppies, washing tie dye, and working. It was a pretty good day.
Of course you were all thought of often. I used to try to imagine what you all were doing, how you were celebrating, but I’ve come to realize there is no point to doing so. No way of knowing if I’m right or wrong and the pain is just too great.
What I do now is shift to imagining your happiness, your joy, your love… I love you five so much more than all the words could ever express. I hope your day was all that you all hoped it would be.
You were a silly little guy from day one, my only baby to cry at birth. I’m pretty sure you smiled since the day you were born.
As you grew you always got yourself into trouble but you were so cute about it. You loved to laugh and make others laugh too.
I hope you never stop being the special boy, young man, that you are. I hope you always have inquisitiveness and happy mischievous. Today I hope you had an amazing birthday. Most of all I hope you know just how much I love you (then, now, and always).
