You were born on a sunny day in May. Just 5 pounds 13 ounces. Our firstborn. Your father and I were so young, but very ready to become parents. So tiny, you fit in the palm of our hand. Your little legs stretching up the length of our forearm.
Such a sweet boy.
Twenty years later to this day. Now a man. Loving and sensitive. Compassionate spirit. Kind to all. Confident in who you are. You love the Lord. You are a pleasure to spend time with.
Getting ready to spread your wings and fly into the world. To start your own life. Explore. A day I have always thought would be bitter-sweet. Not wanting you to leave the nest, but excited to see what lies ahead for you. Mixed emotions.
My prayer is that we have equipped you with every good thing you need in life to be on your own one day soon. Trusting the Lord to do the rest.
I thank God for bringing you into my life. And I'm very proud to be your Mama.
Happy Birthday my sweet Son!
We enjoyed a nice grilled fish and baked potato family dinner together. The green plate goes to the guest of honor. We used to have a red plate for birthdays, but sadly, it broke so the green is temporary until I replace it! Notice the handmade birthday cards on the table. It's tradition!
