Please indulge me today if I am a little misty eyed. I know I am hormonal. It just goes with being my age. But today our oldest turns 26 years old and quite honestly I don’t know how that can be possible. You know when you think about having children you just really don’t know what you are getting into. I mean–really. The late night feedings, the sleepless nights both when they are babies and then when they are teenagers and you are waiting for them to come home late at night fearing the worst. There is nothing that can prepare you.
There is also nothing that could prepare you for the love that comes into your life. My heart is so full and I have always said that my best job ever was being able to be the stay at home mom. I loved it. It was what I was meant to do and fortunately what I was able to do. Not everyone has that in their DNA but I did and I am glad that God made me that way! Thanks, God!!!
So today I am feeling a lot of emotions and it is all due to Micah’s birthday!!! We have been through a lot together and he has become such a great young man. I know everyone thinks that their children are exceptional and I am no different. The difference is that I KNOW mine are!!! 🙂 Happy Birthday, Micah! I love you and am proud of you in so many ways. Hope your day is perfect!
