Four years ago tonight, I couldn't sleep. I knew I was about to set eyes on my baby boy for the first time. I imagined his eyes, his nose, his fingers, his face. The anticipation was intense. I knew my life would change. I knew I loved this little person more than my own life. I. could. not. wait. to. hold. him.
At 2:50 pm on June 23rd, my little monkey arrived. Exhausted after 3 hrs of pushing, I held him in my arms. He looked up at me with his squinting blue eyes. And I thanked God. Although I imagined him, my mind's image did not even compare this child's beauty. He was/is a miracle. I peered into his little face and said, "I'm your momma." I can still remember how he felt, cheek on my collar bone, curled up into a warm little ball of new life. Kisses, a million kisses on his soft downy hair.
Someone once told me, a child told me, "He's going to touch a lot of lives." And he has and he does and most of all he touches their hearts. What a blessing this sweet boy is. What an absolute gift from our Heavenly Father. Happy birthday B. I love you more than you will ever comprehend. You, child, are so very special to me.
