;Twenty two years ago today, the most miraculous and utterly joyful thing happened. I became a mother to the world's most awesome son! For the last 22 years, my life has been full of Thomas Trains and Hot Wheels cars, BB Guns and Bows and Arrows, video games and electric guitars. And I think he's owned more cars in the last 6 years than I have in my whole life! You know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!
Through all the ups and downs of parenting you come to realize it gets harder as they get older, not easier. But through it all, one thing remains the same; I love my son with my whole heart. He bring such joy to everyone . He has a big heart and is living life to the fullest. He has big dreams and is learning who he is, what he wants, and discovering that to be truly happy in life, you have to remain true to yourself.
I'm missing him something fierce today. But he told me yesterday he'll be home for the weekend. And that is the best present I could ask for!
Happy birthday, Nathaniel Thomas. I love you and I am so proud of the man you're becoming!
You know I love this kid because I used 3 stamp sets and 2 coloring techniques on a single card! If that isn't love, I don't know what is!
