This day has been a sweet one for me for many years now ... 19 to be exact. On this day 19 years ago, I became a mama. I didn't realize then that I would love this new role so very much. I had no idea of the blessings and challenges that lay ahead of me. I couldn't possibly fathom how my heart would be stretched in so many ways. I was thrilled with the gift of a son, but didn't understand then what an amazing gift a child is to your life!
I wish I had pictures to share of when he was a baby. Its not that I don't have pictures (yes, those of you that know me, know I take lots of photos). I just don't know how to scan and share them. :-) One day I'll figure that out. Christopher was so much fun. We loved reading books and going for walks and field trips and talking. The days didn't seem to go so quickly, but oh the years do fly.
I can remember when he was little and meeting a mom with a 7yo and thinking her child was so "old". LOL I guess having a 19yo seems really old to a lot of people. My son is a man now and I still really enjoy being with him. He is still fun and interesting. I didn't know how much my love for my children would just grow and grow and grow. What a sweet blessing. God is so good that way.
Today we celebrated Christopher's birthday. It was his first day back at school after spring break (more on that later!). I'm glad it worked for us to spend a little bit of the day with him. Eliana was so excited to see Christopher and she kept asking about it all day. Love the way she is looking up at him.
Much love always,
