Today the amazing young man who made me a mama is 10 years old!
From the moment I found out I was having a boy I new it was perfectly right! I was surprised, because I was sure God would give me a girl and I thought that's what I wanted, but when the ultrasound technician made the announcement, "It looks like it's a boy!" I felt my soul smile!
Though I had no idea what I would do with a boy, I knew God had given me a gift that was beyond my imagination! I felt completely unprepared and absolutely thrilled for the adventure ahead.
My sweet Son, when I held you in my arms for the first time I thought my heart would explode! My love for you was greater than I could put into words. I had never felt the way I felt in that moment and for every moment since then. My precious Boy, you are the answer to my prayers and the fulfillment of the cry of my heart.
This oldest son of mine has taught me so much about myself, about God, and about life. He keeps me guessing, brainstorming, reading, and praying for wisdom about how to be a better mom. He is one of a kind and I am so proud of him!
My ten year old is affectionate. He is lavish with his words of love to his family and he has never met another child who was not his "friend".
MY ten year old is brilliant! His brain is always working, thinking, churning, and questioning. He wants to know why? when? and how? about everything. He has a wealth of knowledge, well beyond his years. He remembers nearly everything he reads and he reads all of the time!
My ten year old has a sensitive and compassionate heart. He hurts for those who hurt! He cries out to God daily for mercy and healing for those in his life that are sick or don't know Jesus! He never forgets!
My ten year old is cautious! He rarely acts impetuously or foolishly! He has spared me many of the typical mommy fears. I rarely worry for his safety! :)
My ten year old is a leader! He has ideas and plans and knows what should be done. I know that this characteristic will serve him well when he is older, enabling him to be a strong and wise leader!
My ten year old loves Jesus! Oh this is my absolute favorite to write. My son LOVES Jesus! He trusts Him, calls out to Him, and praises Him! He knows whose he is!
Birthday boy, I am so proud of you! I know we struggle sometimes. I'm sorry that I can be so impatient and grumpy with you! Thank you for forgiving me when I am unkind! You are a such special young man and I know God has big plans for you! I pray daily that God will hold you close, that you will always know how much He loves you, and that you will grow into a mighty man of God! I'm writing this here because I want the world to know how special you are to me. I thank God for giving you to me! I will love you forever my Son, nothing you or anyone else does or says could ever change that!
I am your mama and will always be your biggest fan!
