Ahhhhh......it's been a LONG time since my little guy was this tiny. He's NINE today. Oh my, that time went by so quickly. I am the mommy of an only child.....so I only got to go down this path once. I was amazed by how quickly she became a woman, it seemed like it happened overnight. So, when my little guy was born I was determined to spend as much time with him as I could.
I LOVE this child. He is so darn interesting. And, funny! We have a Tuesday "DATE" every week. I pick him up at school and we go to dinner, (he's a BOY after all, and ALWAYS starving)...then we're off to do whatever he wants to do. Sometimes we go to the museum, or a movie. Other times we just go to the library, or the bookstore.....or, a tour of local pet stores (he LOVES hanging out at the pet store). He always calls Tuesdays his SPECIAL day and says it's his favorite day of the week. :-) I hope, when he's older he'll always smile on Tuesdays, remembering it's his SPECIAL day!
I begged for a long time, for a grandchild. I couldn't wait. I imagined how much I would enjoy this little person.........but I had no idea how much he would change my life. I'm just crrrrrazy about him. He is the light of my life and joy of my heart.........what an awesome kid.
Thank you Dodi for this precious gift!!!! You're a fabulous Mom........and nine years ago today was the second most glorious day of my life! (She's 38, but still likes to know she's still "got it").... :-)
Happy Birthday Pumpkin! I love you so much. You're a joy and a delight and I am so blessed to call you mine.
Happy Friday to all!
PS...My boy forgot his lunch yesterday and his Papa.....yep, that would be my darling Hubbs, left work and took a lunch to him. Isn't that just toooooooo sweet? And by the way.............he's my daughter's stepdad!!.....he is ALWAYS there for this family. I am amazed at his devotion to this boy. My son-in-law died in a car accident, so my husband is the only MAN in my boy's life. How lucky we are to have him. God is soooooo good. He never calls Brett his wife's grandson either!!! :-) He ALWAYS refers to my daughter as his daughter (she positively adores him) and Brett as his grandson. Can you believe it??? Gosh, I am one lucky gal!
If you're looking for your own Mr. Right....don't give up! He's out there ......and.........he's looking for YOU! God has a plan for each of us.........be patient. You'll bump into each other! I did. :-) I could never have imagined my life could be so wonderful.
Thank you Father God for providing for my family. I am more grateful than I can say....
