Today is an absolutely wonderful day. It is a glorious day. I am tickled and ecstatic. On this day ten years ago my son was born. He came into the world, bright-eyed and full of hair. He scanned the room with his big eyes and took it all in. I looked at him looking at the world and I was in love. I just wanted to hug and squeeze him forever and ever. Luckily for me, Facebook sends me constant reminders of all of the photographs that I have posted of him since he was born. And, I am not being facetious about that bit. I am not a huge Facebook fan but I do like those memory reminders in the morning. Each morning I love to take photos of the sunrise. And, I love to think of his milestones throughout the years. Throughout a decade! Yikes.
I will readily admit that I have a twinge of sadness. See, he is growing up so fast. I am thrilled by the type of person he is growing into. He has integrity, compassion, and empathy for others. He has a keen sense of justice and fairness. He is goofy and silly and loves to laugh with me. He fills my heart with joy. When he is sad, I am sad. When he is happy I am ecstatic. I want to always be there for him but I also know he will have to do things on his own little by little. Despite his age, I learn lots from him. He has taught ne much and I look forward to leanring more.
He is my everything. I am lucky to have him as my son. I am honored to know him. Happy birthday my one and only. Ten years old and such a wise soul already! And the world awaits!
