Good morning love. I went to sleep thanking God for trusting me to be your mom, and I woke up doing the same thing. As a newborn baby you had these giant shoulders, a foreshadowing of the man you would become. I could never have guessed how strong, or how honorable, or how sweet you would be. It’s been my joy to know you, squeeze you, pick you up and drive you around…. All of it, I count as joy. I think that’s pretty remarkable. The last 16 years went by in the blink of an eye. Can you slow down now please? Can we just go look at fire trucks for your birthday? Seriously , thank you for holding my hand in public, for opening doors for me, for… Honoring me. You are a great big chunk of my heart. Happy Birthday!
