You… my sweet boy…
Today is your birthday my sweet boy. The big 6. What a journey it has been so far. We have been across the seas haven’t we?! Every time we made a home for ourselves and we were happy together… because that is the most important thing.
As I sit here, typing this, I know we won’t be together forever… I know that one day you will fly out of the nest and find a family. I often pray for your future spouse… For patience and love and for strength. And I pray for you… I pray that you never lose yourself and that you always stay true to who you are and where you came from. I pray that you keep dreaming and work to make those dreams come true. I pray that you become independent but that you know you can always count on us, your family.
I pray that you know just how much we love you and that you forgive us for any wrong doing.
I pray that you never lose your smile.
I pray that you are gentle with yourself when you make mistakes. Remember that is part of being human.
I pray that you learn to accept and love your differences.
And I pray that you are never lonely…
There is a reason you defied all odds, I am sure of that, and I look forward to see who you become!
But for now, I love the science nut, doctor who obsessed unique little boy that you are and I thank God every day for trusting me with such a character.
You are Special… you are Perfect in my eyes… always.
Happy birthday little man
