This is just a quick post tonight because I’m busy packing to head to South Carolina tomorrow morning. Wahooooo!!!!!
Today is a very special day but also a very emotional day for me. It is my oldest son, Bryan’s 20th birthday. It is also the first time in those 20 years that I will not see him on his birthday because he is away at college, and that makes me very sad. Here is an old scanned picture of my baby and I many years ago, and underneath is the message I wrote to him on Facebook this morning with tears running down my face. Mike and Daniel were making fun of me of course, but I couldn’t help it. My babies mean the world to me!!
“On a very snowy day 20 years ago, one of the most amazing events in my life occurred. My little peanut was born and captured my heart forever. You were 3 1/2 weeks early and cute as a button, and I couldn’t get enough of watching you every moment and wondering over your tiny fingers and toes. There is nothing like a mother’s love for her baby. Then you got sick, and I thought my heart would break because you were so tiny and helpless, but you fought hard and three weeks later you would never have known that anything had been wrong. You have brought incredible joy to my life, and I am so proud of the wonderful man you have become. I must admit this is a very hard day for me because it’s the first time in 20 years that I haven’t seen you on your birthday, but I know that Cayley will make your day really special. Happy 20th Birthday little peanut. I love you with all my heart :).”
