"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

One Decade Ago...

Ten years ago I was blessed with a Valentine gift that will never be topped.

A boy.

A boy who weighed 6.2 pounds, and measured in at 20 inches long.

A boy who defied all odds while fighting tooth and nail for his first 3 days of life.

A boy who is nothing but a wonderful son, brother, and friend.

A boy who wants to do nothing but learn, give, and share.

A boy who wonders....then does

A boy who dislikes....and makes it better.

A boy who's on his way to becoming something BIG....I can feel it.

A boy whom I love more than life itself.

To that boy, I say -

I love you to the moon and stars and back again.


PS-As part of your birthday gifts, I hereby promise never again to cut your hair as pictured in the second image below.
