Happy Birthday

My Sweet Boy,

Today marks three years together as mother and son.  Three years of joy and laughter.  Three years of hugs and kisses, and three years of the greatest journey I have ever know.

Your spirit exceeds you, and your joy is contagious.  As little boys should be, you are full of adventure and wonder. Whether we are playing cars, ball or super heroes, you are fully alive to the world around you and you're teaching me to do the same.

That's the funny thing about parenthood...I'm supposed to be teaching you, but you are the one showing me how to truly live.  Since you've been in my life, I have learned to slow down. Your wonder and amazement of new things  reminds me to relish in the incredible works of our Heavenly Father.

It is truly an honor to raise you, my son, because one day you will be a man. My prayer for you on this day is that your journey to that destination will be one filled with adventure, love, dreams, and joy.  I pray that God will fill your heart with dreams, that he give you convictions and passion, and that you will become a man after his own heart.

May this next year be one of growth for you and your walk with Christ.  May our love deepen and our bond strengthen as Christ continues to bless this most precious relationship of mother and son.



 Tying little shoe laces
Wiping off dirty faces
Are just a couple of things
That a mother will do...

Mending a broken heart
Is only just a part
Of the care and the love
That I've given you...

With a Kool-aid smile
And a sparkle in your eyes
I wrap you in my arms
And whisper this advice...

Be strong, be kind
Be patient and in time
You'll find out, my son
What true love is all about

Be faithful and be true
Show love in all you do
Then you'll know, just how
You make your mother proud

Now, little boy days have passed
And you've grown up so fast
But in my heart
That little boy will never be far...

So on this blessed day
There's so much I want to say
But above all, I thank God
For the man that you are...

With a tender smile
And a twinkle in your eyes
I wrap you in my arms
And whisper this advice...

Be strong, be kind
Be patient and in time
You'll find out, my son
What true love is all about

Be faithful and be true
Show love in all you do
Then you'll know, just how
You make your mother proud

You've made your mother so proud...


You have made your mother so proud, sweet Eli.  I love you more than you will ever you know.  Happy Birthday!!
