My boy

Our bond was immediate.
We looked at each other and it was love.
Nothing more pure.
Nothing more precious.
*
I can still feel the way your warm, heavy, body felt in my arms.
I can smell your sweet, fuzzy hair, as I lay my cheek against your head.
I can remember how you would wrap your chubby, little, dimpled hand around my finger and lay your head against my chest.
You looked at me and I would melt.
I still do.
Your big, blue eyes pierce through me.
Your smile makes me smile.
You still fit in my lap.
I am so thankful.
You are still my little boy.
*
But, how can it be?
How can you be three?
My baby boy.
Still, so much my baby.
But growing every day.
*
You are spirited.
You are funny, and kind, and silly.
You are a quick to forgive,
and always willing to snuggle.
You are my baby boy.
And always will be.
I am so thankful there is a day to celebrate wonderful you.
Happy birthday, my darling boy.
I am so proud of you.
I love you.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
